Making the most of your Aga

I recently attended a ‘making the most of your Aga’ cooking course. The course was excellent and I just wanted to say thank you. Eckington Manor is beautiful and so is the cookery school, set in really lovely surroundings with beautiful gardens. The cookery school was a really pleasant place to learn, lovely and light and it had a really nice feel about it. Our AGA expert was absolutely great, her communication was brilliant and she has such a beautiful personality.
