The BBQ Cooking School

4.7 (106)

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.

The venue was noisy, but central and open and have us lots of space to look around and have good setup.
The teacher was Cleary very experienced and had a lot of really great anecdotes. He gave us a lot of pointers and advice through the lesson. The food was delicious and surprisingly approachable- I am looking forward to trying it at home, especially the reverse seared steak and short ribs.
I bought some of the rub at the end of the lesson which smells delicious.
