• “Clients in our service (rehab) really enjoy attending the group and like that it is in a community setting. They have grown in confidence. Their cooking skills have improved and their knowledge about healthy eating. Social Interaction has improved and confidence being in a group which is invaluable for our clients (with various mental health difficulties).”

  • I was given a bread making cookery school lesson by my wife and daughter – I can honestly say I could not have had a better present: food combined with real quality time with my daughter is a memory I will treasure for years. My 11 year old daughter and I were the only “pupils” so we had undivided 1-2-1 attention from Peter – the BEST host you could ever wish to meet. I gained so many valuable insights into where my own bread-making was going wrong or could be improved. It has reignited my passion for food in a huge way.

  • We recently participated in one of the Chequers Kitchen Demo and Dine events. Pieter gave a very entertaining demonstration which was followed by a great meal. The best “malva” pudding I ever had by far! The wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and use of sharing platters contributed to make this a truly wonderful evening.

  • We organised a dinner with 30 friends at the Chequers last week during the Royal Cinque Ports Open Golf week. Absolutely delicious food and very special atmosphere. All the guests were amazed […] The canapes were outstanding especially the crab, duck confit was best ever. Special mention for the madelaines and citrus cream…….unbelievable! Thank you to Pieter and team.

  • I organised a work day out for 50 of us – we went clay pigeon shooting nearby then headed up to Chequers for drinks and food. Pieter and Gary made the organisation so easy, the food was fantastic (our group are a tough crowd to please) and the team at Chequers couldn’t have been nicer. The terrace is just gorgeous on a sunny day, I would return to Deal just to visit Chequers. Excellent!
