We invite you to browse through a wide range of cooking courses.

In all of our cooking classes (unless specified otherwise), the tutor typically demonstrates the first night and will then discuss what ingredients students need to bring weekly. 

Weekly costs of ingredients approximately $20 – $30 but this may vary as food prices vary and may also depend on what requests students may have for dishes. 

With some of the shorter courses, students are to bring the required and specified ingredients on the first night.

Students are welcome to work together in pairs – please discuss your options with your tutor.

Students are asked to supply own tea towels, dish cloths and hand towels.
