In Hands-On with MasterClass and Technique Workshop style classes, we encourage communication between participants; there are no individual isolated workstations but two large communal tables of twelve participants. You’ll be able to chat and laugh whilst participating in the action. Preparation and cooking of the dishes is a shared experience and you’ll love the guidance and fun your table’s MasterTeacher contributes to the event. The stoves are gathering points to listen and watch whilst Teachers explain and demonstrate cooking and seasoning techniques. This is where the sizzle is created!
Participants enjoy all the ‘glory’ as there is no washing up. We have brilliant “Scullery Specialists” who keep the kitchen spick and span.
Most classes culminate with a convivial meal including much chattering and pride in the beautiful and delicious dishes gracing the table. From a towering Croquembouche to a feast of Tapas or a Curry banquet the food is always eagerly consumed with much conversation.
If you chose a Chef’s Table Demonstration style class you are in for a treat. Relax, sit back, watch and learn. This live event is where you experience first-hand as our Master Teachers prepare and cook all the recipes for you. We cook, we serve and we clean up! You are our guests and we love to entertain.
Guest Presenters are chosen to teach you specialist subjects. These people have many years experience in their artisan trade. As they are experts in communicating clearly they’re guaranteed to keep you entertained. Guest Presenter events are predominantly demonstration style. So, here is your opportunity to relax, watch masters at work and listen to their ‘gold’.
Taking away your own set of laminated colour recipe cards from all classes means the dishes you’ve learnt, can be cooked at home, and you can recreate the magic.
Food serving times in the classes will vary depending on what style of class and what dishes are included. Generally food is served later on in the session so if you think you need it, a snack before arriving may keep the wolves from the door so to speak.
We look forward to seeing you in our kitchen soon.

Children can attend adult classes as long as they are accompanied by an adult. We suggest, to get the most from the classes, they have some knowledge of preparation and cooking. They also need to be tall enough to stand at the kitchen benches for obvious safety reasons. Please note, we do run Get Kids Cooking! Classes in school holidays for 10 to 16 year olds.
Sorry, no. We cannot accommodate spectators.
Sorry, no. We cannot accommodate babies in prams.
Not really! BYO wine/beer if liked. We supply everything else.
At hands on and technical workshops we recommend strongly wearing closed in flat shoes for safety reasons. Please no thongs, sandals or stilettos. Smart casual wear is appropriate with minimal jewellery and short sleeves makes cooking easier! Please no singlets or tops without sleeves. The kitchen can be cool to begin with and as cooking gets under way the temperature will rise, so we suggest dressing in layers so you remain comfortable throughout class. If you are attending a demonstration class you may find you need a jacket or jumper as the kitchen is air conditioned. But please let us know in class, if the temperature is uncomfortable in any way.
Of course you can! We’ll be your buddy. Or you can bring a friend or partner for a ‘date’!
