Hi Alex,

The fresh fish fingers were a definite hit so having to make more this weekend. Michele particularly liked the plaice and leeks so plenty of opportunity to practice my filleting going forward. Thanks again for a great Fish day, I really enjoyed it and impressed with how much we got through.


Dear Alex

I just wanted to email to say thank you for Amelia’s afternoon of cookery, she absolutely loved it. I have asked her to make your tomato sauce again today to keep her hand in! Do let me know if you do any other days like that, I know she’d love it.


 Dear Alex,

Thank you for a beautiful lunch and a fun afternoon of baking. You helped us to execute our amazing 3-tiered showstopper! We devoured half of it yesterday at the staff meeting and the rest was taken home by some greedy individuals. The gingerbread constructions were really fun to make. It was a wonderful “team building” event and I would highly recommend this to other small businesses. The fact that we worked in pairs to make and decorate our cakes and had to share equipment and ingredients was a reflection of how good teams should work towards a common goal. On the way we all learned new skills and together we achieved a bigger goal (the showstopper) that we would never have undertaken as individuals (1 tier is all I have ever dared to do before).


Dear Alex     

I have no hesitation in recommending Alex Halswell to anyone wishing to have cooking lessons to suit the ability & needs of her pupi. She has a willingness to cater her lessons to suit the ability & needs of her pupil. Having recently lost my wife, I was totally inept before she took me in hand.  Lessons can be in her home, or the pupil’s home, or in one case – for me- invaluable advice at my favourite supermarket, as to how to derive maximum benefit from their products.

Thank you Christopher

Hi Alex,
Thank you for a great day in your kitchen, really enjoyed the pasta making and the aubergine bake went down a treat with our vegetarian friends. Plenty of new ideas to try out – again many thanks for all your help & guidance.

Regards Bill

“Hi, Alex,
Success! Both your teaching and my cooking. I cooked the meal last evening whilst my wife read the paper with her feet up!!! I cooked salmon fillets marinated in your sauce, alongside the lovely Butternut Squash risotto. Excellent it was too, and I received a commendation from my wife – believe me that is an accolade!”


Dear Alex,
Thank you very much for the recipes and a wonderful day which we both enjoyed. Our supper was also enjoyed by our guests, who were very impressed! Since then Ruby has cooked a lovely prawn stir-fry so I’m looking forward to her next creation!

Thanks for a lovely busy Mother & Daughter day together!
