I use quite a lot of eggs in my home cooking and CharCol Springs are the freshest and oh so tasty eggs. Whatever the farmers are doing, they are doing it right! Won’t buy any other brand now.
First time buying the veg box and I must say, this is the way to shop! Very personal service with obvious care and attention paid to the local offerings.
This service is amazing! I’d much prefer to pick up from Matters of Taste than battle the supermarkets. The fruit and vegetables are so much fresher and have more flavour coming from Manjimup. It’s fun knowing some of the farmers who grow this produce as well having been on your Food Tours down south.
Thanks for providing us with this service, I’m going to continue buying this produce from you long after COVID-19 has gone!
The box has a great variety of produce and that’s what I was looking for. Handy to pick up so close to home.
Love the freshness and my kids are eating so much of it, I’m really pleased. It all has so much flavour and tastes like fresh fruit and veges should. We get two large boxes each week and share it amongst our families.
So impressed with our veggie box! Thank you.
We loved our box last week. We will order again next week as the large box is lasting up longer than a week. The broccoli tastes amazing!
Just want to say that the quality of that fruit and vegetables is amazing. The pears and apples in particular are delicious.
Everything has so much flavour, I haven’t tasted fruit and veggies like this in many years. So fresh too.
Tracey is awesome! You’ve got to meet her.
Heaps of fun and really educational!
I went to the vegetarian cooking class today and i was very impressed everyone was very nice (including the teachers) and it was very informative
The ladies at Matters of Taste are great, we had a fantastic time and learnt lots too!
Great facility, professional instructors, tasty New York Nosh course. Absolutely, I will go for more cooking courses with you, Matters of Taste Cooking School.
We did the French class as part of a friend’s Hens Party! It was so much fun! & We learned so many great tips & tricks!!! Looking forward to the next class!!
I thoroughly recommend signing up for the Farmhouse Kitchen Table. Bacon, Bangers And Bread cooking class at Matters of Taste. Making my own sausages was a personal goal that has now been achieved as a result of attending the class. The sausages, roast vegies, bacon and bread were delicious and the cake was absolutely divine. Tracey and Briony delivered a fun filled three hours of delectable learning in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Definitely put this class on your to do list’s menu !
Do try it….
Super fun one!!
Great classes. So much fun.
A Saturday morning well spent! Super location, well equipped and a no nonsense teacher taking the class through the steps. Very straight forward clear and concise recipes and all the support you need to make a success of the dishes being done on the day. We did the Curry Opulence. Thank you Tracey and team, I will definitely join you again.
I have done 6 or 7 classes. They are great fun. I highly recommend them.
Tracey, I have joined your Cooks Collective and I feel I must tell you that it is one of the best subscriptions I have joined! The content is amazing and thoroughly worth the price for the year! Congratulations!
I have been to 7 classes with MoT now. The staff are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and are always willing to give more background/instruction if required. The overall feel is fun, with some light hearted humor. The recipe cards are fantastic keepsakes and have been used many times since. If you want a fun informative evening/afternoon, where you get to learn something, eat a tasty meal, and NOT have to clean up afterwards, I can’t recommend it highly enough!
I have signed up for the 3 day trial For The Cooks Collective. So far it looks fantastic, I am hoping that there will be some great recipes/videos added in regularly
Had a great time at the French Bistro class tonight. Hands on, informative, fun and delicious! Totally recommend this for the novice or competent cook. Wide variety of cuisines to choose from next time!
FANTASTIC – will definitely be signing up for more classes. Great night out with friends or family for a fun night out!
Amazing class. We did the Asian dim sum course. Bryonie was an amazing cooking teacher. Very knowledgeable and encouraging. Will be back.
I have just recently visited Matters of Taste for the second time and I can’t wait to go back a third time! My father, sisters and I all go together and have a great time cooking together. You get to meet some great people whilst you cook and best of all you get to eat what you’ve cooked together afterwards. We have completed the Intoxicating Thai and most recently the Dim Sum Chinatown Dumplings. The recipes are so easy to replicate once you return home! I’ll be back!
I visited Matters of Taste on the weekend just gone. I enjoyed the Yum Cha class where we got to make pork buns, fried dumplings and other yummy things. I love to cook and I learnt a lot in this class. I thought Tracey, our cooking instructor was fantastic, she had a zesty sense of humour that added to the experience. I thank my family who bought this experience as a gift for my 40th birthday.
I’ve been doing classes at Matters of Taste for years. My first visit was the house in Bicton. Love it and love the new location. It just keeps getting better.
I attended the Intoxicating Thai session and it was fantastic. Easy to follow instructions and recipes with friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff. Very well set up, can’t wait to see the new premises at the next class I’ve booked to attend (Pizza/Pasta/Gnocchi) in July. Thanks ladies for a great morning with delicious food and to my husband Jason who bought me the voucher for the class for Christmas and who I will bring along to the next one! Highly recommend “Matters of Taste”!
I would highly recommend this cooking school to everyone. My boyfriend and I had enjoyed our dim sum class. It was very hands on and interesting class. Tracey was great.
Attended high tea class yesterday with my 13 year old – both loved it. Great mix of hands on + demonstration and the end result was delicious. Best part is they are recipes we can do at home.
As always, top class. Amazing teacher and you learn to cook delicous food. Hand on class which is wonderful to practice your skills and get tips from your teacher
Taking part in the pastry making class with Tracey last Saturday at her new premises was fabulous. It is beautifully set out and all staff are so welcoming making it a great day with friends, meeting new friends, cooking and learning new recipes and techniques. Tracey made it so easy to follow and shared fabulous tips along the way. I recommend you take a look and book a class soon. Thanks to Tracey and her team for a great afternoon.
I attended the Croquembouche class and had a lot of fun. The end result was delicious 😋 and I learnt of lot of great techniques.
Had an awesome evening learning so much about gut health and eating fantastic food ! Recipes were easy to follow and it was great how interactive and relaxed the class was. Highly recommend for anyone looking to learn and have fun.
Amazing teachers, amazing good, amazing live videos… I am glad you are here!
Went there yesterday for my 21st birthday surprised gift with my boyfriend and had a wonderful time learning how to make dumplings and meet some wonderful people. I can’t wait to make it at home. The food was absolutely delicious especially the roasted duck wrapped in rice noodles.
Fantastic experience, Tracey and the ladies make you feel very welcome and you get to share a delicious meal at the end of the class!
My hubby and I had a great experience. Very well organised and fun. We cooked good food. Everything you need is there for you to use. Great recipes and good instructions. Bryonie was excellent and fun.
Awesome pickling / fermenting class today with Tracy, thanks for teaching us ladies
ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! A FANTASTIC DAY! Thank you so much Chef Tracey, you are wonderful!
Went to the Spanish Tapas class – it was absolutely fantastic. Couldn’t be more impressed. The instructors were friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Everything was explained clearly and there was a good mix of teaching and hands-on experiences. The recipes we learned were absolutely delicious but still achievable at home, nothing overly complex. 10/10
Recently did the Spanish Tappas class and was very impressed. We learnt so much and got to make some incredibly tasty meals that you can easily follow at home. Would highly recommend and make sure you have an empty stomach so you can fit in all the food you cook.
Thanks for the smoking and BBQ class today. The food was amazing! I feel confident that we will be able to recreate the dishes when hubby buys the smoker! Tracey is a great presenter and teacher!
We had a great time attending the pizza, pasta & gnocchi session! The instructors were knowledgeable, helpful & fun. We look forward to coming back again, the session in Thai food has caught our eye. Thank you so much ladies x
I attended the lamb class in the paddock to plate series and it was like being at a huge family gathering with some informative culinary dinner theater taking center stage! A most enjoyable evening, I thoroughly enjoyed (and stuffed) myself and would highly recommend to others.
Thank you for a lovely afternoon, we both very much enjoyed it. What a wonderful birthday gift my husband gave me.
I attended the Spanish Tapas class last night and really enjoyed the experience. The food was delicious and I’m looking forward to putting some of the recipes to the test at home. I will book again soon!
I received a gift voucher for my birthday. Decided on The Exquisite Thai along with my friend. We both had an awesome time, lots of laughs, finest ingredients and generous tasty servings. I learnt some valuable key lessons as well. Really looking forward to my next class Essential Knife Skills !! Thanks Ladies for a great day out and money well invested.
Had a fabulous time learning to cook Spanish tapas with a great bunch of people. Was very tasty, easy instructions to follow and delightful teachers. A wonderful way to try something new.
I just attended the Vietnamese cooking class and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Food was great, presenters friendly and easy to follow, and fellow participants a good bunch.
Very professionally run class with a great range of food cooked. We went to the Spanish Tapas Class and came away with some great ideas and new flavour combinations to cook at home. We also learnt a new technique for cutting onions which we will be using from now on! Thank you for having us!
Went to the Spanish Tapas class and it was most enjoyable. It was a full class but this did not detract from the teaching or preparation of dishes – which were delicious. I would highly recommend this cooking school and I look forward to doing another one.
Fun, informative, very well set up, absolutely delicious. First time there and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Great gift idea, and so many courses to choose from.
OMG!! So much fun, everything was handled well so that the whole evening ran smoothly. Great instructions, wonderful setup. And the FOOD!! Wow! Excuse me, but foodgasms!! Wonderfully planned recipes with taste sensations to make your eyes pop and your mouth water! And plenty of food to go around. I left practically rolling out the door. Absolutely will return one day, with friends! Loved it!
Definitely the best way to expand your cooking repertoire. Such a great crew, setup and it was so much fun to have a glass of wine while we created so many amazing dishes!
Fantastic!! Wonderful cooking class and great teachers and students of course.
Spanish Tapas was incredible full of so many yummy fresh ingredients. Had an absolute blast with Tracey on the weekend, both my sister and I had an awesome time throughout the class all the staff were super friendly and helpful! Can’t wait for some more cooking fun with the amazing team.
For anyone interested in learning scrumptious fresh recipes from experienced chefs, go along to any of the Matters of Taste classes. I’ve done Spanish Cantina & Intoxicating Thai, with another 4 classes booked – both were awesome. I enjoyed learning tips and techniques to get the best out of your produce and overall dish. It’s also a lovely way to meet people and have a laugh, as the atmosphere promotes it. Can’t wait for the next class!
Had a wonderful afternoon with great friends at the Spanish Tapas cooking class. Tracey has such a great sense of humour with showing us how to put it all together. Very much recommend whether you are a pro in the kitchen or not.
Just had a fun filled morning with my Mum and Bestie learning all sorts of culinary skills and Thai snack foods. Everyone was so friendly and I learnt so much more than expected. Book yourself in for a treat.
“Had a fabulous High Tea cooking class, loved the savoury cheese tarts, who knew you had to boil dough before making bagels, so fluffy. Great chefs very entertaining can’t wait to see the videos. I will be back!!!”
“Had a wonderful time at the High Tea Heaven class on Sunday. Food was delicious and took home great tips and recipes on how to prepare the foods at home.”

“Highly recommend to anyone who wants to start or upgrade your cooking skills. The food was the Bomb !! Thank you Kristen for being an Ace teacher,
Brett & I will be back for another class. “
“Excellent Classic Bistro class on Saturday. Gems like mixing sugar with boiling cream instead of with egg yolks for brulee and crepe techniques were really valuable.”
“Awesome food, great to learn and and a fun crowd to do it with”
“Had my first cooking class today and we made Macaroons!!! Oh my golly gosh what an amazing class ;-))) So many laughs, thanks to Tracey I cannot wait to make these at home, learnt so much today. Highly recommend doing a class and hope to join in on another cooking class again soon ;-)))”
“What a great night we had at the South American Street Cart Food demonstration. Warm and inviting ambience on a cold winters night. Seriously great food that was simple to prepare and delivered creative flavour combinations with delicious results. All had a great night with lots of chatter, laughs, tips and tricks.”
“Went along to the Spanish Cantina class on a Thursday evening. Whilst the class was full there was no difficulties in seeing or listening to the teacher, the kitchen set up is amazing and of course the food was excellent (and homemade). The class was run as a mixture of masterclass and hands-on which made the best use of time, space and ingredients. I would strongly recommend checking them out and as a bonus the washing up is done for you.”
“I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the class, very easy for all skill levels to join in without feeling intimidated. I plan on going back for a French class!”
“The Moroccan Tagines class last night was a fantastic food journey transporting us to the heart of Casablanca. There is surely no better way to enjoy a cold winter’s night than to be enveloped in the smells and taste of harrisa, preserved lemons and the exotic spices of North Africa. The experience was made all the better by the entertaining instructions from Tracey and her team, the fantastic company of the other participants and the best part of all…. no washing up!
“My sister, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed Saturday’s tapas class. Everything was so well organised, we cooked a lot in the time slot and the tastings were very generous.”
“My first cooking class – and absolutely loved it! Tracey was an awesome teacher! Food was amazing, can’t wait to make it for my family and friends! Definitely will be going back and definitely recommend it to everyone!”
“It was my first ever cooking class last night- Classic French Bistro. I had a lovely time! Everything was so well organized, the food fresh and the recipes delicious!!

A good time had and I cant wait til my next one! Spanish Cantina here I come!”
“Such an enjoyable afternoon today cooking the winter warmers menu! My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the hands on experience and will be back!
Thank you to the amazing chefs, definitely recommend!”

“Today my friend and I got to experience our first cooking class. We completed the Winter Warmers. Wow we had a wonderful time, our 2 chefs were terrific and so knowledgeable.

“Me and my mum love going to these cooking classes! It’s such a great experience and we are never disappointed!”
“What a great afternoon spent making High Tea and eating it! It was one of the best birthday presents I got! Highly recommended.”
“Really loved the Moroccan Tagine class last week – Tracey was entertaining, and a delight to learn from – she gave some great suggestions for alternatives as well as tips and tricks!! We have since made the lamb tagine and the cous cous, and it was just as lovely as it was at the lesson. Can’t wait for my next lesson!”
“Today I enjoyed the fabulous Spanish Tapas cooking lesson. The teacher was fantastic, the food fabulous and the school is very well equipped. I am looking forward to recreating the food at home. Thanks!”

“I had an absolute ball at the Summer Dining with Friends class last night. Friendly atmosphere, patient knowledgeable teachers and beautiful food that I can now make at home!! Thanks Bryonie and Tracey for a wonderful night.”
“Really enjoyed the Spanish Tapas class on 7th April. Went along with my son and we had a great time so much so that we boasted that our Patatas Bravas were much better than those at a well known Tapas bar in Rockingham. Can’t recommend Matters of Taste school enough. If you’ve not been why not get on a course now. Tracey and her staff are great and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. I would do another course tomorrow except now I’m home in Cyprus it’s a bit far to travel but next time I’m visiting I will make it a priority. Thank you.”
“My husband and I attended the Indian Curry Opulence class this afternoon as a ‘first date since having children’. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon with excellent tuition, great atmosphere and a brilliant feast at the end (secondary to some great cooking skills showed by all). As we lay here motionless like snakes after a big feed, we are already contemplating which Matters of Taste class will be our second date.”
“On Saturday I finished my third amazing class with Matters of Taste and last night I tried to recreate one of the amazing dishes at home with complete success! I can’t believe how much can be learned in three hours of cooking. Each dish was explained perfectly, making it so easy to take the skills learned home. And they tasted absolutely beautiful!”
“I participated in my first class tonight, creating tastes of intoxicating thai. I’m quite a nervous person and to go along on my own was big for me. Everyone was so welcoming, I learned lots, met some great people and got to eat our scrumptious creations at the end. I will definitely be back for more. Thanks for a really great night.”
“I have only wonderful comments to say about my experience at Matters of Taste cooking school. I attended the Chinese Dumpling class and it was a pleasure. Working with Tracey and a collection of 11 other students, it was a great learning experience to be a part of a hands on cooking class. Together we created a selection of delicious treats! Learning practical skills as well as information about ingredients and flavour combinations, it was an overall good experience. Tracey was a lovely teacher! I highly recommend a Matters of Taste cooking experience.”
“This place is just amazing. The classes are fun and interactive and you learn so much! The teachers are lovely and very friendly and make you feel right at home. After my first class I know this is the place I want to keep coming and building my cooking skills with. Loved how hands on it was and the feast you get to have at the end!”
“OMG! This was the best ever experience in my life, except other small “little” things 😉 I loved every minute. Tracey and the girls were brilliant, entertaining and the food delicious!!! The fun and the class and ambience – just perfect. I would have stayed another 3 hours…haha… I’ll be back for sure!!! Just need to sort out dates… even the follow up care – outstanding! Love you guys, keep it up! Highly recommended!!!
“I had the pleasure of participating in my first Matters of Taste cooking class this morning. Tracey and her team are the ultimate professionals. The class was lots of fun, informative, inclusive and most importantly, the results of our efforts were absolutely delicious! Tracey is a font of knowledge and spends much time explaining food facts while allowing everyone to be ‘hands on’ during the class. I can’t wait to try the recipes at home and will definitely be back to try other classes.”
“Heavenly Vegetarian. Master Chef – eat your heart out!! Very informative and teachers were so helpful and charming. Menu full of wonderful colour and variety and the spiced lentils (of all things) to die for!!! Hands on approach really suits my style of learning! Overall a joyous experience. Thank you!”
“My third class at Matters Of Taste and once again had a fantastic time cooking Spanish Tapas. Had a great afternoon with my niece from Melbourne. Both of us went home totally full. Thanks Tracey and Bryonie. A big thanks also to the ladies out the back who do the mountains of washing up, so that we don’t have to!”
“I recommend this to go to learn new skills and cuisines. They have very knowledgeable and friendly teachers. I was in the Chinese Dim Sum class and just had a ball. It was well structured and well presented. It’s a great way to meet people and would be a perfect gift for any foodie. I can’t rate this highly enough! Will be back for more!”
