Hi Turan, Thank you so much for the great course. I was very enjoyable and informative. Highly recommended .....Jude

Thank you for a fantastic afternoon in the garden. We're spreading the word and a couple of foodie friends [and chefs] are really keen on taking a class. I'm still slightly obsessed with that apple dust.....Annika

I am very happy to say I found the food smoking course very informative and represented good value for money. I came away equipped with the knowledge and confidence to have a go at smoking my own food. In fact I have already hot smoked some mackerel .....Helen Sheridan

Turan is very passionate about smoking food. It was hard to not come away wanting to give it a try yourself. I'd really recommend sharing time with Turan for anyone with an interest in learning some skills that we shouldn't let get lost to the ravages of time. You'll come away knowing lots more than when you started (even if you've read up on the subject like I have) and also realising that it's not that tricky, or expensive, to start turning out fantastic smoked products at home. .....J A London

I just wanted to say many thanks, it has enabled me to make my own cold smoker and get smoking! I had my first cold-smoking session here at home a few days ago - so I thought I would share the results with you as an indication of what I got from sharing time with you. I have attached some photos of the cabinet I built.....Regards MC.

I Really enjoyed the time I spent with you and left feeling that I could just get on with smoking. Looking forward to experimenting! Thanks .....Sue Northants.

Turan showed us all his secrets of the trade – we were amazed at what an old Quality Street tin and a flower pot can be used for! Turan’s enthusiasm and passion for smoking food really came across as he talked us through getting the best results from each different wood and method of burning it. Everyone caught Turan’s enthusiasm for smoking. feeling inspired to give it a go themselves – especially having seen how easy it is to do once you know how! .....CT Staffordshire

Thank you for a wonderful time, one of the most informative i've had. Regards .....Tony Mansfield

"Turan was very generous in answering a wide range of questions. I left full of enthusiasm that I've already put together a smoker that currently contains home-brined salmon, various vegetables and a range of cheese. I would whole-heartedly recommend time in Turan's company to anyone who has an interest in food-smoking". .....Tony Plant

"I've been hot-smoking food for around 15 years but had never felt comfortable with cold-smoking. Turan's knowledge and experience not only filled in some gaps for me but provided a lot of new ideas. Turan's knowledge of this subject has given me the confidence to cold-smoke a wide range of foods and experiment further". .....Stella Plant

"We were amazed at the ease of smoking. It is something we have wanted to do for a long time but have avoided because we thought it would be a minefield of health hazards and things that could go wrong. The amount of information he imparted made me feel confident". .....Angela Howe

Turan was very enthusiastic and understood all the background and related topics on food smoking. So he easily covered any questions I had. Thanks....the family all enjoyed the samples! .....Brian Goodbourn
