I booked this class for my wife and I as we love eating dumplings. The welcome, coffee and chef Ken’s knowledge and support was first class. All of the people who attended the class loved the food we made and the wine that went with it. I will definitely book another class there very soon.

Highly recommended

Pasta and Gnocchi Cooking Class


This was a great activity. The equipment & food was provided. Everything ran smoothly. Brett was a great teacher. He demonstrated the techniques, gave tips and helped us wherever possible. The pasta and gnocchi were kept simple to prepare and we were given a chance to eat the gnocchi and take home the pasta. All in all, it was a great experience.

Dumpling Making Class


We did the Dumpling Making class. Our teacher Ken made the class fun, informative and took his time explaining each process. It was fabulous all we had to do was turn up all the ingredients were provided and the best part was we got to eat what we made. Ken at all times made sure to include everyone in the class. Overall a great experience

Meat, Cooked to Perfection Cooking Class


Learnt a lot about food handling and general safety. learn the best ways to cook different types of proteins. Due to COVID19 the classes are smaller to make things more controlled. everyone was able to wash their hands and sanitise frequently. Ate some lovely food at the end of the course from what we prepared. my only negative criticism is that there wasn't room for social distancing when being seated on the table.


Burnett Therese • Aug 2020

Meat, Cooked to Perfection Cooking Class


Convenient location, Covid clean practices, Paul excels at clear explanations, demonstrations, encouragement and enthusiasm.
Professional presentation. Focus on protein. Feel confident to repeat at home after a trip to butcher.

Pasta and Gnocchi Cooking Class


My friends and I had a great time at the pasta and gnocchi class! The teacher was very knowledgeable, friendly and approachable, and made the whole experience fun. We made a few different types of pasta and gnocchi, which were all so delicious. We were given the recipes to take home, as well as our own hand made pasta. The venue was COVID safe so we were all physically distanced and hand hygiene was strongly encouraged throughout the evening. Overall, great experience!

Thai Cooking Class


Our teacher demonstrated and explained very well.
she taught us how to deal with the more exotic ingredients and where to buy them.she engaged us all, and the food was very delicious.
she gave alternatives to some parts of the recipes if they might be very spicy.i helped prepare the second helping of Green salad, after she had demonstrated this.
i would definitely recommend this experience.

Vegetarian Cooking Class


My partner and I attended the Very Vegetarian cooking course on 09/01/20 with Paul as our teacher. We were both very impressed by his culinary knowledge and approachability to ask questions.

All materials and ingredients were provided and some were prepared to help the speed of the cooking process. Paul made sure to go through how to prepare those items too. The recipes were easy to follow and absolutely delicious.

Also, we both especially enjoyed the simple pro tips of preparing certain ingredients more efficiently by Paul.

This was such a fun class! We learned how to make four different types of dumplings including gyoza and wonton PLUS two delicious dipping sauces. Our teacher was so friendly and supportive throughout the class. I cannot wait to try making these dishes again at home.


Tim Walsh • Nov 2019

Dumpling Making Class


Ken was a great teacher. The room was all set up when we got there and there was a good variety of options in terms of the food and Ken said he would make accomodations for any allergies or preferences. Ken was patient and informative and we learnt how to make 3 kinds of dumplings and 2 sauces. Would recommend this class to anyone who likes eating dumplings


Thomas Angove • Nov 2019

Paul was a wonderfully clear and well paced teacher. He was very knowledgeable and he made every recipe seem achievable. Although we only had hands on tasks for the chocolate fondant and the filling of the peach crumble the dessert were all delicious.

The teacher was friendly and fun and really thorough. He packed in so much in the time we were there - I learned a huge amount. Had my son and his friend and they were a bit dubious beforehand but had loads of fun making and eating dumplings and said they would definitely do again.

Fantastic venue, and equipment. The teacher was brilliant. He really made it feel easy, and not too complicated for a poor cook like me.
It was also nice to enjoy a glass of wine too.

Very enjoyable and informative class. Comfortable classroom. Enjoyed eating the food and bringing some home as well.
We will definitely be cooking some of the dishes at home and looking into more recipes that use loomi. All of the other spices will be fairly easy to source.

Spanish Paella and Tapas Cooking Class


Paul, who ran the class, was passionate about what he was showing and the resultant enthusiasm from the participants was obvious. Great clean venue, well organised, simple to follow. Ready to take on another class. I am not sure how you could improve the experience.

The Paella was excellent as was the vegetable tortilla.
