Discover the joys of cooking in our fun, interactive learning environment at our culinary school in Perth! When you join one of our cooking classes, you join a small team and everyone focuses on making a different dish under the guidance of the instructor. After preparing your dish and learning some new recipes, we all sit down to share the food in a massive feast!

Our three-hour cooking classes in Perth have you cooking for two hours in our open-plan kitchen and we keep our groups small so you get plenty of one-on-one time with the instructor to ask questions, learn tips and tricks, and of course meet new people! We also cater for groups with our Corporate and Private Events – just ask! Our experienced instructors ensure you have a fun time in your food class, regardless of your age or skill level.

All very good. Very well organised and structured - the teacher was very enthusiastic and helpful. It was just a shame it wasn’t possible to take home sausages - but we’re inspired to make our own!

Pasta Making Workshop - Adults



Too many people Sauces bland Crowded Chief was good No takeaway recipe instructions Needed more pots on stove for pasta

Pasta Making Workshop - Adults review by Peter Smith


Reply from this teacher:

Hi Peter
Good morning.

Thank you for your feedback on our previous Pasta class.

To answer your comments.

Too many people
* Workshops are always in groups of 18 guests.
Our cooking classes are in smaller groups of 14 guests.

Sauces bland
*As explained and shown in class, each couple is shown to cook each of their own pasta created to finish with sauces and adding seasoning to their own dishes.

Crowded.
*each couple had their own turns to use and make their pasta and cook to avoid crowding and safety for each one.

Chief was good
*thank you

No takeaway recipe
instructions
*as explained in the beginning of class. Recipes will be sent via email and experience the cooking by using senses feeling the pasta . And learning through textures and tastes.

Needed more pots on stove for pasta

*will provide more pots as this limited pot ensures guidance and the cooking process is always guided by myself in a safe manner.

Thank you for your comments. Hope to always improve our classes.

Kindest Regards
Chef Sunny de Ocampo

The only improvement I think could be maybe make the class a little longer so it doesn’t have to be quite as rushed. All in all, in was awesome. It was a great mix of watching and doing. The eating part was awesome of course. I loved our teacher, Sunny, he was friendly, informative and upbeat! Thank you

Sunny was such a character- funny positive, knowledgeable - can tell he has taught a class or two. Venue was clean and large enough for group, great value for money we would much rather do a class like this as a date night then eat in a crowded restaurant at the moment. I learned so much about Thai ingredients and cooking methods which I’m uncomfortable with but Sunny was very patient and jumped  + more

Japanese Ramen Soup Cooking Class



Japanese Ramen class: Chef Robyn is amazing and fabulous at engaging all participants into the class. This was my second cooking class with Robyn (first one was the pasta making class with my husband and kids). What can I say this was a great birthday present for my sister who is obsessed with ramen, Robyn has an amazing amount of knowledge to impart and the food of course was amazing. Both styles of Ramen were delicious and I can't wait to make this at home for my family. Looking forward to doing more classes in the future with Chinese dumplings  + more

Chinese Dumpling Making Workshop



I really enjoyed my dumpling class with Sunny, I can highly recommend the night for someone looking for a entertaining evening with a delicious finale. Sunny did an excellent job of demonstrating technique, whilst still ensuring everyone participated. This ensure the meals were prepared fast enough to be completed within the time frame without everyone just standing around watching. Will be coming back for other classes, perhaps Vietnamese next time.

Sausage Making Workshop



Thoroughly enjoyed this sausage making workshop. Sunny was an excellent teacher- he went at just the right pace and answered our (many) questions along the way. The venue was spacious and clean and even with 19 people in there we didn’t feel at all crowded. We made 3 different types of sausages, from scratch, and then learned how to cook them properly. The best bit was the feast at the end! I will definitely be looking for more classes run by Sunny. Thank you!

Sausage Making Workshop



The class was very well organised and the venue very clean. It was also easy to access with parking at the back. The class was fun and Sunny is delightful.

Smaller classes for 6-10 vs 10-14 would work better with learning skills, as well as fewer dishes but more attention/practice on each dish as it is only a 2hr class.

Pasta Making Workshop - Adults



We had pasta making with Sonny. He was very informative on the pasta making and we felt like we learnt form this. However when it came to then feeding the pasta through the machines this was disappointing as the first machine my friend had was faulty and confirmed after much fiddling about by Sonny. We then had to wait for others to finish before we could make our noodles ( this was another thing I was surprised there were not enough machines per 2 people). When we finally got to a machine this was also a little problematic but after trials we managed  + more

Sunny our teacher was friendly and helpful and very informative. I would recommend a class to all, great gift idea and to share an experience or memory with is priceless. We will go back.

Thai Curry Pastes Workshop



Teacher was clear and gave good tips on preparing food and ensured everyone had a task to do. The food was amazing.

Thai Curry Pastes Workshop



Robyn was friendly and informative creating a relaxed working environment. I particularly liked the fish curry and her knowledge of which local fish to use . The working area was suitable for our small group but I feel it would restrict involvement of all participants if the group was larger . It was value for money but being time poor at the moment I’m not likely to start from scratch when I cook these recipes. Glad we get these emailed . Was just a little worried about lockdown esp when one person said they live in Northbridge .

Native Australian Cooking Class



The food looked and tasted amazing, but it wasn't intimidating and I think I could recreate the dishes. The teacher was friendly and helpful. It was very interesting to learn about our native ingredients. A great class for beginners as well as more experienced cooks.

Gnocchi and Risotto Cooking Class



Sunny was an absolutely amazing teacher/ comedian/ chef and made our night so enjoyable. He kept everyone laughing and involved whilst ensuring safety and hygiene practises were taking place. Couldn’t have asked for more. Delicious food and definitely value for money. Already looking at booking again :)

I thoroughly enjoyed the Chinese dumpling making class, I learnt a lot. We were given all the equipment we needed and the teacher was very informative. She was approachable and welcoming if we asked for help. Would recommend to anyone considering.

Native Australian Cooking Class



The food we made was AMAZING! Robyne demonstrated and taught a number of new techniques, tips and tricks. It was particularly special to be using natively grown ingredients from Western Australia and see just how flavourful, diverse, versatile they are. Would love to attend another!

Chinese Dumpling Making Workshop



Class was great! Good fun. The teacher Robyn knew her stuff and was very relaxed and helpful during the class! Would definitely do a class again. More bench space to work might be good but I don’t think that’s essential.

Wonderful evening of fine company and cooking. A warm welcome from the start and delicious food demonstrated by Riki. A very hands on experience from start to finish and concludes with a sit down with new friends made to sample your evening's efforts. Would definitely recommend and we will be back for more. Thanks Riki.

Pasta Making Workshop - Adults



A very relaxing and enjoyable evening after a day of work. The teacher Riki really made all the difference: she was fun, cultured, cute, welcoming, energetic and passionate. Definitely going to buy and use a pasta maker at home after this class. Don’t forget to byo wine to drink whilst waiting for your pasta to cook!

Pasta Making Workshop for Parent and Child



Robyne is an excellent teacher: clear, concise and really relates well to children and adults alike. The kitchen is well set out, and she had everything prepared and ready so all we had to do was show up and enjoy!. It was a great activity that both I and my 11 year old granddaughter enjoyed- so much so, she wants to do another activity: healthy eating.

Japanese Ramen Soup Cooking Class



We loved everything about the Ramen class. Robyn is a great teacher and her passion for good food comes through in her class. Her instructions were clear, thorough and delivered in an interesting way. I purchased this as a gift for my partner. The process was quick and easy and the venue was comfortable, even on a hot summer night. Would highly recommend.


Michelle Pyke Jan 2021

Japanese Ramen Soup Cooking Class



Great teacher/chef Had a lot of great background knowledge on ramen which was insightful.

The Art of Smoking Cooking Workshop



Venue was great, Robyn was fantastic - really knowledgeable and down to earth. Food was absolutely amazing and learnt heaps! The class wasn’t very interactive though - could’ve been more hands on.

Chinese Dumpling Making Workshop



It was very fun and easier then I expected. Would try another class with my friends


Carolyn Earle Nov 2020

Sausage Making Workshop



Sunny was very enthusiastic and explained everything thoroughly and didn't hesitate to answer the many questions we asked. He was limited by faulty equipment which wasn't his fault but extended the timing of the class to nearly an extra hour. What was very good was that there were no recipes provided on the night, so you could actually concentrate on what Sunny was doing and learn and practice rather than staring at a recipe and making notes. It was also good that the ingredients were pre-measured so you didn't waste time doing this.


Russ Davis Nov 2020

Sausage Making Workshop



An enjoyable experience with an enthusiastic group and a talented and fun leader. Sunny is a well credentialed chef and a good communicator who was put under the pump because the mincing/stuffing machine was not working properly. (certainly not his fault as the cooking school has been waiting months for a vital spare part from China). This severely impacted course timing but Sunny soldiered on and was able to deliver the whole program, albeit it with a late finish. The kitchen is very well equipped, well located with plenty of free parking.


Robert Holloway Nov 2020

Sausage Making Workshop



Sunny was very positive and enthusiastic. He obviously knows what he is doing. The venue was good. Unfortunately the sausage making machine had problems and was very, very slow filling the sausages. This became a chore and delayed the class. The advertised finish was 8pm but we did not finish until 8.45pm.


Alice Creasey Nov 2020

Pasta Making Workshop - Adults



Such a fun class! I absolutely LOVED it! It was easy to follow and so tasty! I can't wait to start trying it at home!


Michelle Lim Nov 2020

Pasta Making Workshop - Adults



Fantastic class! Riki is a great teacher and just a fun person. I really enjoyed learning to make pasta, it's given me the confidence to try it myself at home. Great to learn little tips and tricks which can be hard to do if you are just following a recipe. Well done for a great class.
