"Freya and Maynard - You are both very gracious and entertaining hosts, we truly felt welcomed and at home in your lovely farmhouse. Maynard - you teach so much and on so many different levels from basic skills to such inspiring, artistic presentation - such generosity with your knowledge - and such patience!!
We thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, the food, the wine - the company of Terry, Liz and Carol - and especially the riches we are able to take home and share with our family and friends. Keep us posted as your next course develops, we certainly do hope to see you again.

"Maynard and Freya
Waht can I say... The Walnut Grove has exceeded my expectations more than I could have anticipated. Where do I start, Freya runs the structure and accommodation beautifully and never misses any minor detail. The food, well... We have Michelin Star sublime meals every day - I have had some of the best food of my life so far here. Maynard leads the school fabulously - perfect "cheeky chappie", completely able to make the most inticate skill fun, what a skill! Completely transferable elements which has transformed my way of looking at food. I fully anticipate perfecting my new skills learnt on this course. Such a fun, enjoyable, informative, eye opening, 5 star experience. Thank you both!!
