As I write this, England is five days into the new "rule of six" under which a maximum of six people can meet, and I realise how amazingly fortunate I have been to attend this course. It absolutely proves that you must seize opportunities whenever they are presented. This was an excellent course. My experience in outdoor cooking was very basic, being focused around oats, rice and pasta, but even on the first night, I was astounded and delighted by the food which we cooked and ate with considerable gusto. Like all Woodlore courses, you're kept busy, and you're given the skills and encouragement to produce results which you would normally consider impossible. Ray, Dave, Steve and Wayne are all excellent instructors, and continue to uphold Woodlore as the gold standard in outdoor training. Ray in particular teaches at an entertaining pace and with a great deal of humour, and it's a genuine privilege to be taught by him. All the instructors commanded the students' respect, and, certainly in my case, the course exceeded my expectations (as did my culinary efforts). I was also blessed with two absolutely excellent teammates, Oliver and David, who I would be happy to join on any course or expedition (assuming that they would have me along!) Because I started knowing very little about this subject, I felt genuinely amazed by the speed with which I acquired knowledge, and I have a new found enthusiasm for outdoor cooking. I wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone looking to improve their outdoor cooking skills and would like to thank all at Woodlore for an excellent course and a very memorable experience.
