what people say about us
Jez Groom, Director Ogilvy & Mather
"The Food Academy just keeps on giving. It gives the team the opportunity to build friendships in an out of work and fun environment. It gives senior leaders a channel to get closer and open up to the people that help them achieve their goals. The course gives some great insider cooking tips and knowledge to impress your friends. But most importantly, it's about businesses contributing back to society and local communities and thinking about people as well as profits".
Rosie Boycott, Mayor of London Food Advisor
"This is a fantastic initiative, which should help a whole new generation be inspired by cooking and develop a healthy love of food".
Susan Jebb, Co-author Foresight Obesity Report
