A little more about the classes:

* The classes are demonstration style, though sometimes there are opportunities to get involved in the cooking if you want to (please just ask).

* The classes include delicious food samples and recipes to take home.

* The classes are run in a warm and welcoming environment so please come armed with questions, and make sure you bring a pen to take notes.


Personalized Classes (from $70 per person, minimum 2 people)

Personalized cooking classes are available for 2 - 4 people. As with the classes above, these are run demonstration style and include recipes to take home. However, they are a class where we cook to a menu and then sit down to lunch or dinner together.

This is a lovely option as a birthday treat for a friend who is hard to buy for. Rather than simply going out for a meal, watch it being prepared while learning new recipes and asking all your foodies and nutrition questions.

    The example in the picture to the right is a lunch class that was part of a Matakana Escape for 2 lovely ladies from Napier. They asked for a wine match recommendation to go with the food in their menu, this Yakutin Family Wines 2019 Rose was a perfect match.

Menu options include a meat (or vegetarian) dish plus 1 - 2 salad/vegetable options, plus dessert. Wine match extra (and optional).
