"We were bought 2 vouchers for a cooking course at Tan Rosie so we duly booked onto the half day Caribbean street food course! The set up in Brum is great, nice place for a drink & snacks on arrival and a well designed kitchen for the group to cook. We were in a group of 7, the ingredients were organised & the whole session was well planned & delivered so well!! Lee who lead the session was just fabulous, friendly, warm & so knowledgeable about everything linked to Carribbean cooking!!! Had a fantastic time & would highly recommend it …… The curry patties & other the other dishes we cooked, even if I do say so myself were lip snackingly gorgeous, primarily due to the fantastic teaching of Lee!!! 😁"

"Had an amazing day with Monica and Lee on Saturday. The course was great, the style was relaxed and we got to take everything home that we cooked!
The food was lovely and I can now make some great dishes like Mutton Curry and Jerk Chicken. I think my poor rice cooking skills may have be a thing of the past to!
I would definitely recommend a day with Tan Rosie."

“We went on the half day Caribbean cooking course and were greeted with a smile by
Monica and Lee .We cooked some really tasty dishes and took enough food home to
feed the family.It was very informative not just about the food but also about their lives and the culture of the area the dishes originated from.Above all it was great fun and great value.”
