Our cooking school covers a range of cuisines and skills, plus special guest chefs, promoting our beautiful region and its people. Please choose from a variety of Hands-On, Demonstration and Discussion Classes using our event calendar to see what’s on and book your class. Classes are released 60 days prior to event. If you require any further assistance, please call the Chef’s Kitchen.
In Hands-On classes, Students have the opportunity to work directly with the Chef and fellow students – being guided, coached & encouraged by the Chef, while they prepare and cook the menu themselves. Students will enjoy a full sit-down service including the menu they have created and two glasses of wine. Classes run for 4 hours.
Demonstration classes are held in a theatre-style. The Teacher will present and demonstrate how to prepare, cook or use certain dishes, elements or skills. Students will enjoy the food that is presented and cooked in the demonstration in a relaxed shared-style setting with a glass of wine. Classes run for 3 hours.
Discussion classes give students the opportunity to meet with the Producer and explore and learn about their products and skills on a deeper level. Learn history, fun facts, varieties, methods, ways of doing, pairing, etc with an open Q&A session. The most exciting part – it includes tasting & samples – with the opportunity to buy direct from the producer at discounted rates. Students will also enjoy a complimentary glass of wine. Classes run for 2 hours.
