Shona was easy to talk to when organising what I wanted to learn, excellent planning and thought went into the event. Very detailed and thorough course, great value for all that knowledge!

Online Chocolate Tasting: A very interesting session tasting over a dozen chocolates from around the world. Shona introduced us to the aspects to consider when tasting chocolates. And then we got down to business and tried the various chocolates Shona had sent us. There were plenty of chocolates that were new to me, and I've found a couple of new favourites, so overall it was a very interesting and educational experience.

Technical Chocolate Course
Such a good range of the recipes that also gave options to liking of the individuals taste. Shona is always super helpful and easy to contact with any queries about courses and booking. The end products were amazing!!! so chuffed with what we did throughout the day and also tasted so good! Considering the difficulty of it being a hot day Shona helped us navigate this and create great end products.

Absolutely delighted, would highly recommend classes with Shona, so enjoyable and new skills learnt. Fantastic!

Another excellent class with Shona, learning more exciting techniques for Easter, the classes are full of information and step by step guides, Shona is very approachable if you feel you need a little help during classes and goes out her way to help you. Looking forward to the next class!

Progressive Skills Online Course: "I cannot recommend this course enough. Shona is a great teacher with a wealth of knowledge to share. The hands on 'cook along' aspect was fast paced but absolutely worth it as it gives you that real time experience in the comfort of your own kitchen."
