Hi Simone


I just wanted to say a big thank you for your hospitality and for the amazing cookery course today. Leon was so proud of the food he produced with you and it was the best fresh pasta & meatballs I've ever had! He is so excited about recreating this dish, and has been reading the recipe to everyone, and explaining how he made it with you. It has been the highlight of his holidays and you have increased his interest in food!


Many Thanks
