So today I wanted to write about an amazing man Dennis Van Golberdinge. Dennis and his wife Juliette opened up one of the most exclusive cooking schools I have been to just over a year ago. After working as a culinary consultant for many years and cooking to 2 Michelin Star level Dennis proves he has the knowledge to teach even the most amateur cook. He has also catered for the likes of Michael Douglas, Tom Cruise, Elisa Minelli and the Dutch Royal Family.
I attended 3 courses with Dennis over the period of the year at his cooking academy in Welwyn, Hertfordshire. Each 6 week course took us through some of the most amazing dishes I have ever cooked. But it isn’t always about the final dish, Dennis teaches the techniques needed to cook well in a kitchen, for example how to properly prepare fish and keep dishes fresh. I met some great people whilst on the course, and as the classes are always kept small you really get to bond and enjoy them.
Dennis and Juliette also offer private dining and catering – both of which I have to say are absolutely amazing. The private dining will be a once in a lifetime experience with every palate catered for!
