  • jacqui said: I took part in is course last night & have already recommended it, and Maker in general to 2 people who will be coming along to more classes with me. As a reasonably 'fresh' vegan, I was keen to increase my plant based cooking skills, and I had the most enjoyable evening, learning, laughing, cooking & eating the most delicious vegan feast that I can't wait to share with friends & family! The Maker team are an amazingly talented, spirited & inspirational bunch of women, and I will certainly be coming back for more!
