Relax at this class and let us cook for you!

Each month 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. 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.

Small Scale Market Gardening
Dinner 11th  April OR Lunch 12th April 2019

Discover how city-dwellers Jamie and Pippa made the leap from the big smoke to rural Pemberton not so long ago.

They turned a weed-laden paddock into a productive, spray free organic vegetable market garden selling produce to restaurants, locals and visitors to the area.

“We love our food, we love our animals and we love our environment. We believe that what we eat should be the most nutrient dense, healthy and ethically grown and loved food we can consume. We know we feel better and healthier when we consume good food and we want to have others join us and feel healthy and happy in regards to the food they consume.” says Jamie.

Also running Fairweather Dairy Bar which overlooks  the spring-fed Pemberton Pool Jamie and his partner Pippa focus on procuring local produce all from within a small radius of the town for customers enjoyment.

If this isn’t enough, Jamie is also a Pemberton volunteer firefighter and he generously imparts his gardening know-how to other wannabe market gardeners and home veggie patch enthusiasts.

Primary Producers Value Adding
Dinner 6th  June OR Lunch 7th  June 2019

Supermarkets are demanding ‘perfect’ produce and their pricing remains aggressive, this is creating havoc for primary producers. We have seen and heard first-hand many stories along these lines and farmers are fighting back and diversifying as well as minimising wastage in an attempt to make a living from their land.

This  farmer has done both with his stunning range of dried fruit and fruit bars… vitamin-filled, antioxidant and fibre rich and preservative free they taste of pure fruit and goodness!
