We did the Full Day Italian Cooking Experience and it was amazing! We cooked 4-course meals for lunch and dinner and everything was delicious. We had the best breakfasts with fresh yogurt and homemade scones and bread. Mike and Cilla are wonderful hosts and we are hoping to go back again asap.

We did the 2 day cooking experience with Mike and Cilla. What an amazing experience with wonderful hosts.
We walked through the fields asking questions and tasting herbs with Mike explaining how everything works. I cant believe the difference in tastes between farm grown and supermarkets.
Afterwards we went off to the kitchen where we learned to make dishes like the semifreddo, fried zuccini flowers and fresh country bread.
Our favourite lesson was a foolproof way to poach an egg! It works!
The evening we spent listening intently to their wonderful life stories and enjoying the fruits of our labours.
Overall a fantastic experience.

Take time out from your hectic schedule to soak up the country atmosphere at Wicked Food and add to your culinary repertoire at the same time. Mike and Cilla – who have travelled around the world - offer a wide range of fantastic hands-on courses and you get to eat your creations afterwards! What’s even nicer is that you see exactly where your food comes from – farm to plate in one visit!

We stayed for 2 nights at Wicked Food and did their Vietnamese cooking experience. It was an amazing and relaxing time. The cooking course was exciting and we learnt about loads of different flavours and techniques.....really worth it!! We absolutely loved our hosts, Mike and Cilla, and they really went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. We'll definitely be visiting again.

Our Lebanese food experience over the weekend was unique and special. We had two cooking classes, for lunch and dinner, and learnt a lot about cooking overall and Lebanese cuisine specifically. The classes were well-structured with Mike staying in control of all the different dishes being made, but us having fun with the dish assigned to us. The feast at the end was really something extraordinary - I'll never look at hummus in the same way and I'm definitely trying the new ways of making chicken and dumplings at home.

The accommodation was good and the breakfasts hearty. Mike and Cilla are great hosts and the farm is a lovely setting to rest and unwind. I highly recommend staying, cooking and eating at Wicked Food Earth.
