We had a great time at Taste of Tuscany. Brett was informative and entertaining.
The produce we had was high quality - and delicious. The recipes we did were easy enough to follow (with good instruction to help us along), but not too easy - so we had to keep focused to produce a tasty meal for ourselves.
You eat exactly what you cook - and we were pretty happy with what we created - as was everyone else.
Class sizes are fine and Brett was able to keep a good eye on how we were all doing, and give necessary pointers at the right time. Great fun and good learning.

Robin Fahlstrom Oct 2023

Class was great, teacher was great and the food was delicious!
The class ran in a timely way and they let us takeaway the leftovers which was lovely.
The room did get a little hot but we had water provided!

Great intimate cooking experience. Brett had lots of knowledge to share, and used humour which made it an informative yet fun experience.
Would 100% come back and try some of the other cooking classes.

Great class learning how to cook a number of Italian dishes, with a very tasty and filling meal afterwards!

Evan Douglas Jul 2023


So much more than I could have expected.
I thought that it would just be something new to experience, mark it off a bucket list item and just maybe get a few tips in the kitchen.
But no, it was so much more. Beside learning some key techniques and learning to cook new foods never attempted before and being able to ask just about any question, if felt more like a social get together with a bit of education thrown in.
But the real surprise was at the end, when I found that the food I cooked out most restaurants to shame. Who would have thought, I could cook as good as a chef.

We had a great experience at the Taste of Tuscany cooking class at Sydney Cooking School. We learned how to make a wide range of Italian dishes, such as Focaccia, Chicken Saltimbocca, Eggplant Parmigiana and Tiramisu. Along the way, our teacher Brett gave us some great general cooking tips and kept it fun and interesting. He was very personable and catered for the range of abilities in the class with encouragement and humour. It was also good to hear about his experiences working in France. At the end, we sat down and ate our creations with some good quality wine and conversation. There was so much food that we had doggie bags to take home! Everything, including ingredients, equipment and wine is provided for you. Overall I found that it was great value for money and I’d highly recommend to anyone, especially those who are craving a trip to Tuscany!
