THE COOKS TABLE

Demonstration Guest

Relax at this class and let us cook for you!

We’ll present beautiful fresh seasonal produce you’ll love to cook with at home. These are very special occasions that offer unique opportunities for lovers of food and cooking. People who are interested in supporting our hard-working primary producers who provide much of the food we are lucky to have available to us in Perth.

Bryonie and Tracey demonstrate and entertain with their double-act behind the stoves. Watch them sizzle, chop and stir as they create a fresh and ‘cookable’ menu to inspire you.

The class kicks-off with a glass of bubbly and an appetizer, there’s lots of friendly chatter and new recipes grace the long-table in our kitchen. This meal experience includes a Special Guest presentation, someone who has a fascinating food story and grows or makes excellent produce, a Western Australian primary producer or an expert in their chosen culinary related field.

We serve a delicious main course as well as something sweet to finish on most occasions. All recipes are designed in-house to showcase the featured produce. These Cooks Table Classes have it all!

Choose from a Thursday Evening Dinner or Friday Daytime Lunch.

Christmas – Traditional Theme with a Modern Twist –  Dinner 28th or Lunch Class 29th November

Good butchers are the ones that are still surviving against the odds. The giant multi-nationals as you know, slash prices and import meat from inter-state. Local independent butchers know where their meat comes from and often, even know the farmers themselves. As consumers we are becoming more aware of the provenance of our food and what to know the animals have been cared for. Brett at Reids Meats in Applecross Village still buys in whole carcasses to break down at the back of his small shop. Meat is also home-smoked and his bacon is famous!

Dishes you’ll be served at this class are…

House-Smoked Chicken Appetizers with Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Bretts famous Turkey Roll with Veal, pork, bacon and pistachio stuffing

Reids Meats Ham with MoT Christmas Glaze

We are working on savoury accompaniments to grace the festive table

…and enjoy a glass of bubbly on arrival.
