I loved the French cooking class, we had chef Elle, she is so lovely. I loved all the dishes we had and she gave so many cooking tips. Really helpful ! Hopefully follow some recipes at home.

We had the best time night out at Vanilla Zulu. Mel was such fun! What a great sense of humour, a very charismatic teacher! We learned a bunch of different skills but also ate the beautiful food me made, while sipping on our vino! The bar was a great feature, and the facilities were top notch. We did the French cuisine lesson but the Spanish tapas lesson was occurring concurrently- we will be going back for that one next time as it looked fantastic too! Definitely recommend this class.

I had a really great French Cooking Class there with my boyfriend and had the pleasure to meet nice people as well. The place is really good, although i missed some tips because it can get very loud with two classes at the same time. However, I left the class so full and with big pots of food too! I would definitely go back for another class (maybe pastries?). Also, shout out to the teacher who were so patient and had so many good tips!

Ellie was knowledgeable and professional yet friendly and welcoming. She shared her knowledge through demonstration as well as going to each group to ensure they were managing the dishes giving advice as required.
The venue was good except when there was a lot of cooking going on and the ventilation didn't work too well. My eyes were sore from the smoke in the room.
The additional staff on hand to clear the plates etc were a bonus to ensuring that the workshop went smoothly.
I really enjoyed the cooking as well as the food and would definitely come to another workshop. I will recommend this service to my friends.

Really had a good night. It was a little bit disorganised at times. I think if most non-perishable ingredients were measured out individually on each bench, it would save time and avoid going back and forward across the room. Food was great, and did enjoy ourselves.
