Meat, Cooked to Perfection Cooking Class



Great class to learn the cuts of meat, what to buy, and how cook. Best part for me was learning how to bbq then slice a steak to perfection. Chef Paul was very informative and professional, he gave us many tips for cooking all proteins.

This was a great class. the teacher was so knwlegdebale and i learnt so much. I went as a solo cooker and they were so welcoming that I did not feel like the odd one out.

We were collected by a very friendly and efficient staff member who guided us through a labyrinth of well equipped and super clean professional looking kitchens. Our Chef, Ken, was amazing. The dumpling making class was fun but informative. I’ve picked up so many tips from him; my favourite is to rest the gyoza for a few minutes after turning the heat off to allow the gyoza to continue ‘crisping’  + more

Unique Curry Creations Cooking Class



Very good indeed. The insights into how to cook the spices was invaluable. Paul was clear, informative and entertaining. The flavours of the food we cooked were outstanding and far superior to any local restaurants and cafes my family attend. We cooked our own Daal and contributed to cooking the other dishes. Maybe a little more 'hands-on' would be better. Overall, this is excellent. Thank-you Paul  + more

We did the curry creations class with Paul. We have done a few cooking classes in Australia and overseas. This was thoroughly enjoyable and with a really tasty result. Really loved the dahl and the barramundi red curry. Paul was an excellent teacher, explaining the produce, spices, etc and how to use them to develop flavour and complexity. He also answered all questions and was very knowledgeable as a professional chef. After cooking we sat and ate together with a glass of wine. Lovely! We could also take leftovers home so nothing was wasted. Would  + more

Excited to cook the pasta we made. All and all a great class but I think the class would have been even better if we got some recipes to put with the fresh pasta we made so we could give them a go when we got home. Maybe we could have even made a fresh tomato sauce or something whilst in the class to take home.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
