Masterclasses

Cooking is one of the most satisfying arts anyone can master. It is one of the few skills we all need. After all we all eat at least 3 times a day.

Quiet often people will become convinced "they can't cook". Our experience is that anyone with passion for good eating can learn to cook well. 

Chef Andrew has almost a decade of experience teaching cookery at some of the most prestigous award winning cookery schools in Australia. Most recently he was Head Culinary Trainer for Crown Casino in Melbourne. This is your chance to take advantage of his infectious passion and expertise in cooking.

Design your own Masterclass
If there is a culinary hole in your food repetoire let Chef Andrew help you to fill in the blanks. It could be a particular technique or a dessert that you have fond memories of as a child, or you have simply always wanted to learn first hand how to make fresh pasta. We can help you achieve Culinary greatness in your own kitchen.
 

All Masterclasses include a meal for all participants prepared by Chef Andrew utilising the wonderful products produced during the Masterclass.
