Here you will find the testimonials people have given about the various parts of Eat Bake Sing!


“I am learning more off of you (via wild plant tutorials) than I did in my entire military survival training”


“I went on a Know Your Edible Plants Walk last Friday evening. The perfect activity at the end of a busy week, I discovered lots of new facts, tasted several plants that I didn’t know were edible and looked at familiar plants from a fresh perspective. Julie Russell is a wise and entertaining guide. She shared her knowledge, books and wild garlic pesto generously.Highly recommended.”

“..it was amazing.  I really enjoyed it.  In fact it made me feel great for the rest of the day…it was more than foraging….it was a gift of knowledge…and was even more than that.  It was such a lovely day”

Jo B


“Thank you for the enjoyable, very engaging and ever useful event (mindful calzone baking). It helped to confirm the merits of mindfulness and especially of the importance of the ”Here and now.”

“It helped to take my mind off things and focus on something nice…”

“It was the right amount of people, not too overwhelming…” (there were 10 people baking here)

“Thanks for a great day and for helping me to achieve something that I never thought I would”

Anthony L (chef of 25 years who had never baked bread!)

“It was nice to eat together as a group and feel proud of what we have made!”

“The event….(Community Bake) enabled me to bake bread in a social setting which again made the activity infinitely more enjoyable.”

Julian N

“There was a nice mix of old and young people and some lovely music provided…. A really lovely community event. Thank you!”

Ruth P

“Another interesting experience……was getting into conversation with a lady whilst rubbing elbows with her during the dough kneading…… I listened to her with such fascination that I wished we’d had 10 lumps of dough to knead and not just one.”

Julian N

“Had a really good time at one of Julie’s Community Baking events recently. We were making and baking bread and learning about sourdough in a very friendly relaxed atmosphere. Julie is a great teacher, very knowledgeable and patient. We tried our bread with home-made jam to an accompaniment of beautiful harp music, and singing.”

“Bake first, eat and sing / make music and sometimes dance. It’s a combination of all three together, plus an ‘added ingredient.’ The added ingredient isdifficult to describe. Being together with great people, sharing, a real sense of community and fellowship. Plus new friends made.”

Andrew Edis

“A wonderful day at Green’s Windmill


You can bake… and sing”

Marialuisa Marino


“It was great my little girl loved it… The music was great to find it hard to believe that it was all done on the spot. I will [definitely] be going to another soon x”

Andy W

“I’ve just come back from a flash mob community sing in Nottingham with Julie of Eat Bake Sing. What a high! Singing songs with friends, old and new, in a beautiful acoustic space, in public, was just so freeing… I cannot wait to experience that again!”
