Cooking Essentials Series ( 0 Event )

We've had lots of requests for cooking classes that teach essential culinary skills, from knife sharpening and chopping, through to cooking exciting and healthy family meals using a range of cooking techniques. So here it is!

In each class we will be cooking at least two dishes that encompass different cooking techniques, from pasta and Italian sauces through to the perfect steak, Thai curries, roasts, and vegetable dishes. In the process you will learn to chop, sautée, roast, blanche, and do just about everything else you need to become a confident cook.

This five-class series is on Wednesdays, beginning on 23 August and concluding on 20 September, 6.30-8.30 pm in the Foodish Cooking School at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets. The series is $395.

The classes include generous tastings, wine and take-home meals. 

If you can't make the whole series, you have the option of booking into any three classes of your choice for $260. To take up this option, send us a message through our Contact page and we will book you into the  classes and invoice you. We recommend a minimum of three classes to ensure a good exposure to the range of cooking methods and techniques.  

Spring & Summer 17 ( 8 Events )

After a long winter the weather warms and we crave freshness and liveliness in our food. It's time to embrace the bounty of the spring and summer seasons in our cooking, and that's our quest in these Monday Masterclasses.

We're cooking colourful tapas, festive Mexican, summer Thai, spring Italian, Provincial French, and fresh and healthy Vietnamese. 

And then there is Christmas! How about mastering a Xmas seafood paella, christmas duck, and our tasteful take on turducken with some elegant turducken rolls. We've got baking classes too. Learn how to make savoury and dessert roulades (a great option for Christmas lunch!), and master DIY chocolate truffles.

A veritable bounty of flavours and new-found skills in these Monday Masterclasses!

  • have morning tea
  • cook and eat a delicious and healthy meal that they can then cook at home (with varying levels of supervision)
  • learn about food and nutrition
  • have lots of fun

We have classes are for kids 7 and up. 

The classes are well supervised by experienced educators and take place in the Foodish Kitchen at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets.
