Where are you located?
The school is located in Wentworth Falls, in the beautiful Blue Mountains. Wentworth Falls is approximately100kms west of Sydney and about a 90 minute drive or a 2 hour train journey from central Sydney. We are10kms from Katoomba and 7kms from Leura.
How long are the classes?
Generally the classes are 3 hours in length. They are generally held over lunchtime with some specific themed classes (High Tea etc) held in the afternoon. Depending on the subject matter, some classes are slightly shorter or longer.
Can I bring my own wine to the class?
Yes, you are welcome to bring your own wine to enjoy with your meal. We provide water, mineral water and tea and coffee for all of our classes. We are not a licensed premises and cannot therefore offer wine as part of our classes.
Are the classes hands on?
Yes, the classes are generally hands on with constant guidance throughout the class. When there is a specific technique or skill that will be used in the class, I demonstrate this to the class then get you to replicate. I feel this is the best way for students to learn.
How many people are in each class?
For our Public Classes, we can take up to 10 people. For our Private/Corporate Classes, we can take up to 20. There is a minimum number required for each class.
Do I need to bring anything?
Really, just yourself and your sense of fun and adventure. Closed toe shoes and long hair tied back is always best in a kitchen/cooking environment and I can provide aprons and any other equipment you require. There is a large garden that you may wish to explore, so you may want to bring a hat.
Do you provide recipes to take home?
Yes, each student receives a recipe pack to take home.
Can I purchase a gift voucher?
Yes. You can purchase a Gift Voucher to any of our classes. The vouchers are valid for 12 months. You can choose a voucher for a specific class or purchase a general voucher that the recipient can then use towards one of our public scheduled classes.
What if I have a specific dietary requirement?
When you enrol, you have an opportunity to inform me of any dietary requirements/intolerances. I will do our very best to accommodate these requests.
Do you have corporate team-building classes?
Yes, we often run Team Building classes. They are a great way for colleagues to get together and do something a bit different and fun along with learning the skills and art of time management and teamwork. Contact us for more details or refer to our Team Building page.
Do you run private classes for adults?
We also run classes for private groups. This might be a family celebration, a Hens or Same Sex Couple cooking class or simply a class for a group of friends. Contact us for more details or refer to our Private Classes page.
