NEW Mt Pleasant Premises

Keep up to date with our move to brand new premises on Ogilvie Road Mt Pleasant

In our 20th year of business, Matters of Taste Cooking School is moving to its’ very own premises.

With the new cooking school being located in the Canning Bridge Precinct on Ogilvie Road, Mt Pleasant we ‘ll only be 8 minutes from the CBD. Enjoy easy access to us north or south of the city via the freeway, buses and trains. You could even come by boat!

This page will be constantly evolving over the next few weeks to keep you up to date with progress on transforming our new location into an outstanding educational venue. You’ll be able to check it out at any time for up to date news regarding this exciting project.

With support from businesses such as Winning Appliances and Cosentino you’ll experience cooking education in the best way possible. Using sleek quality domestic appliances in warm and inviting surroundings, being guided by our qualified team who not only know how to cook, but how to teach, you’ll feel as if you’re at home around your own kitchen bench, cooking with friends.

New location address is G03/19 Ogilvie Road , Mt Pleasant, WA 6153.

Progress of fit-out….

Early April 2017

An empty room with an identity crisis. Thinking it’s going to be an office, this space needs much work to become a culinary education venue!

Empty room

3rd April 2017

Carpet goes. Well, the majority of it.

9th April 2017

Great news! The final building permit is through from the City of Melville. Let’s push the ‘launch’ button!

10th April 2017

Plumbers in, coring waste and water holes and fixing pipes. Lighting position altered to accommodate future partition walls.

Easter Weekend 2017

Team Cotterell get in with brushes and rollers to paint walls.

Scullery and Kitchen Flooring laid.

All going well until the second roll was opened. Ooops! Varying shades from two different batches.


First stage kitchen cabinets in. Looking schmiko. Oh look there’s the cameraman!


Friday 28th April

Ovens and fridges in. More wiring and plumbing done.


Wednesday 10th May

Flooring now complete – 3rd time lucky with matching the rolls. Beautiful Ogilvie sinks plumbed in. Scullery benches and commercial dishwasher mostly installed. Air conditioning re-routed. Bulkheads just need a bit of an extension. All Asko appliances looking schmiko and working! Ceiling adjustments just about complete. Last few wiring jobs being done. Lots happening tomorrow and Friday.

We are finally here and loving it! Come and join us soon for delicious and inspiring cooking classes.
