What People Say About Us!
Rebekah & Sheba
"The Making To Sell course gave me invaluable information. I now know what steps I need to take to achieve my goal of creating a successful, healthy, sustainable food business. Thank you MIH."
"The course changed my taste buds. Over the weeks I stopped craving junk food. I wanted to carry with me the good feeling I had after leaving the kitchen. The sessions had a holistic, healing quality."
"The course has blown me away. We've cooked so much and I've learnt alot about new fruits and vegetables. I used to think organic was expensive but the workshops have shown me how it can be accessible."
"The food we make is delicious and I always enjoy the cooking. While at Made In Hackney I've tried lots of new healthy dishes. Food is exciting. Now I think I'd like to work with food when I'm older."
