The BBQ Cooking School

4.7 (122)

BBQ Cooking Classes, Corporate Events & Catering. Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Hunter Valley.

BBQ School was founded in 2004 by internationally trained chef and passionate foodie Ben Farley who identified that while many Aussies were really into cooking on the BBQ, most only had one or two recipes they knew how to cook really well.

Showing keen BBQ’ers how to prepare and confidently cook a collection of simple, effective and tasty recipes was the best way forward and so in 2004 Ben turned his back on a career in Sydney and London high profile restaurants and founded BBQ School.

In our classes, we assume no knowledge but have found that the more a student knows about BBQ cooking, the more they learn from our experienced chef presenters.

To date around 90,000 people have been taught through the BBQ School.

Our head office is in Willoughby, Sydney but we also operate regular classes in Sydney's Centennial Park, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Hunter Valley and each year the School continues to grow in response to people who wish to cook with more flair when entertaining.

I bought tickets for this class for my son who took his father with him. Both raved about the skills of the teacher, the tips and techniques they picked up, and the fun way it was presented. The cookbook received after the class is excellent.

Class was good fun. Teachers had a good sense of humour, I learned how to cook a whole chicken and enjoyed one of the best cooked steaks I've had in ages. Will definitely be trying the other classes to have something fun to do on the weekend while picking up a few cooking tips
