About The Instructor
When you go along to any cooking class it’s always good to know a little bit about who will be running the show…. So, I am a cookbook author, recipe developer, private cook and caterer who has been running cooking classes and workshops throughout Sydney for over 10 years, both on Sydney’s Lower North Shore and also in the Blue Mountains. 2020 will be the school’s 7th year of operation in the Mountains and my 17th year of teaching cooking. Yikes! 🙂
I am a dedicated foodie with qualifications in cooking and hospitality. I have a real passion for producing food which is not only delicious to eat but also easy to make at home. The recipes are easy to follow and unpretentious, yet the resulting dishes are delicious and inspired.
About The Classes
The kitchen is purpose-built for cooking demonstrations and if you would like some hands-on involvement, then you are welcome to do that too! I teach attendees about cooking techniques, ingredients and provide recipe hints and tips along the way. At all classes, we sit down and enjoy the dishes we have made, so people never walk away hungry!
About The Location
The cooking classes are held in a beautiful Wentworth Falls weatherboard home which is set on an acre of gardens and orchard. Originally built in 1914 aand used as both a guest-house and then a retreat in the 1920s (when it took more than a day to travel from Sydney!), the house has all the splendour of its orginal era, combined with the comfort of modern times.
The demonstration kitchen is the perfect setting for the relaxed observation of a cooking class, and if you feel like day-dreaming, just glance out the window to see our sweeping pines and blossoming fruit trees. Oh the delight!
