What we will do...

We offer either hands on classes or demonstrations

Hands on classes = these hands on classes are limited to 14 so we can offer you a great space and experience

Demonstrations = these are for watching and asking questions. They are more economical, usually shorter and are great for special things especially introductions to special topics and as a teaser for the deeper learning that comes with hands on classes.

  1. The duration of all classes will vary, please check the times of each individual class.
  2. You will receive a recipe booklet, food tastings, coffee and tea, and an apron which is on loan only though we are able to take orders.
  3. Depending on times of year and special circumstances we reserve the right to substitute any part of the class, the chefs, ingredients and other issues that are beyond our control.
  4. Customers will be notified of any cancellations at least 7 days before the class. A refund or rescheduling will be available at that time.
  5. If you are unable to attend we will require at least 2 weeks’ notice, we can reschedule the class for you but cannot refund. We are however happy for you to arrange another participant.
  6. All classes are suitable for men and women we will offer special classes for children. Any children over 12 in the adult classes must be accompanied by a paying adult.
  7. The consumption of alcohol is not permitted before or during practical cooking classes. For the safety of the individual and others, persons deemed by our staff to be intoxicated will not be allowed to participate in a class.

    It was the best entertainment I have had for a long time and I learned heaps too. Tony's directions were given in an easy going way and his stories were enjoyable. We had a choice about participating or not. The food cooked was great. Especially the desert. Guess who has a sweet tooth? We thought that we would do another class with Tony towards the end of the year but there is none planned. It turned out to be a great girls night out.

    Marbeling - this was fantastic. Mary also told us of different methods of using fondant and making colours and useful tips such as the layers sticking together and which tools were much more useful. Very happy with the class and look forward to the next one, A very enjoyable experience and learnt so much of what is available

    The latest Sauce cooking class was a great success. Chef Tony's engaging manner and his amazing knowledge made the Asian class a joy to do. The trip around the Chinese grocery store was a revelation and well worth the extra time. Then the combination of great recipes with great outcomes and the opportunity to eat what we produced made for a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience. Peter and Geraldine

    Kate is a great trainer. All processes thoroughly explained. There was lots of time for hands on practise & several different coffee styles were also explained. Highly recommended.
