Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon at Hillmount with Chef Terry and his team. 1.5 hours of advice, tips, tricks, recipes and laughs. I now understand why my BBQ cooking hasn't been as successful as I would have liked and how to improve it (and that was in the first 5 minutes!). The small taster dishes were delicious and I will be trying... More

Absolutely loved my visit to Hillmount. We took part in the half day course and despite it being a typically wet and windy saturday everyone had a ball. The staff are great, really informative, you can they know their stuff and their banter really helps the class gel together.

We really enjoyed the BBQ taster session today. The team were welcoming and to arrive to the smell of freshly BBQ chicken wafting around set the scene! Terry the BBQ chef/demonstrator was entertaining and informative and it was a treat to sample the various goodies and to get so many good tips in 1 and a half hours. Well done... More

Fantastic course packed full of useful tips, lovely recipes, pitfalls and techniques. I found this so valuable and have got very excited about BBQing! Apparently you don't even have to wait for the sun to shine? Go figure. The class was so relaxed, great banter, plenty of interaction with opportunity to have every question answered as if time wasn't a... More

A glass or two of wine accompanied the food, and other beverages were available. This was all very well organised (none of the scrums which can... More

Took myself and my father off to the Hillmount BBQ Academy this morning for a half day class. Both thoroughly enjoyed it ! Dad a bit more than me as he was able to enjoy sampling the wine. I was the designated driver. I thought I knew how to use my Webber but I definitely learnt a lot more today.... More

On arriving noticed Terry (the Instructor) putting food on pizza for tasting, during the process he was pushing the cheese or cream off a spoon onto the pizza and licking his fingers and carrying on doing the same again. When the pizza came around to try we avoided them. He also kept rubbing his nose with the back of his... More
