If you’re more of the home-comfort-type and you’re looking for someone to share cosy evenings in the kitchen with, why not book a cookery class at Three Good Spoons?

Choose between Myanmar dishes, baking, Thai food or French vegetarian classes, and if your date is really the one, the proof will be in the pudding.
