Foodish develops unique cooking experiences for every special occasion. Join one of our cooking classes or organise a celebration or team-building cooking event.  Just tell us what you want, and we'll make it happen!

Our purpose-built Smeg Cooking School is at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets. 

Cooking Classes

Foodish runs a broad range of cooking classes and we are always introducing new classes in keeping with the seasons and current cooking trends. Our teachers are highly skilled chefs who have a wealth of experience in Australia and overseas and who have culinary teaching experience.

Check out our cozy Autumn and Winter classes held on Monday evenings 6.30pm to 8.30pm. In each class we cook warming ethnic cuisines, from Thai to Indonesian to Mexican and Spanish using beautiful produce and creating exciting and accessible dishes.

In addition we have some exciting one-off classes. Passionate vegan Lauren Wright leads us through the techniques and tricks of Vegan Autumn Baking on Saturday 7 April. Korean chef Jiwoo returns with a fun and delicious Korean BBQ Masterclass on Monday evening 9 April, and we have an exciting and intrepid Mushroom Forage with FungiCo on Sunday 8 April in a forest near you!  

Then there are kids' holiday classes and kids' Wednesday after-school cooking camp in Term 2. Fun and educational programs for kids aged 6 and up.

In the depth of winter we warm the kitchen with our four-part Pastry Workshop in June that takes you from the basics of savoury and sweet shortcrust through to the dizzying heights of croissants and danish pastries.

In June we also have a return of our popular Under Pressure series that teaches you how to make slow food fast using your pressure cookers. A whistling cooking experience!

Lots of winter warmers coming up! Please click on the 'Classes' tab above to look and book.   


Cooking Parties

A cooking party is enormous fun and a great way to celebrate your birthday, anniversary, hens, Christmas, or kid's birthday party. It is a cooking class and party in one!

Our wonderful and highly skilled chefs will work with you and your friends to prepare a fabulous food experience. Fancy a Thai or Italian feast? What about a tapas party or High Tea? We will help you develop the menu that is ideal for your special event.

Reap the delicious benefits when you sit down to dine in our new stylish cafe space. We're also happy to bring the party to your house!

Work-team Cooking
