"I recently attended a course at Wendy Barrie’s Food Studio, for an eventful day of knowledge on how food is bred, fed, produced and the effect this has on its flavour. With the course lasting the whole day, filled with the tasting of meat and game from local farms & butchers cooked by Wendy, a lunch buffet from a good range of local produce, to chats on sustainable farming with a biodiversity twist from Bosse... With both bringing their knowledge of food, farming and local produce to the table was an absolute treat. For a good price and some good knowledge from both Wendy & Bosse and a stunning location, you’d be silly not to give it a try... I’ve recommended this course to all of my chefs. Well Done guys!." J. Davidson, Perthshire
