Cooking with Truffles--Masterclass and truffle lunch ( 4 Events )

This year Foodish is once again a proud member of the Canberra region Truffle Festival.

The Festival provides lots of opportunities to taste truffles. At Foodish we teach you how to cook with them!  

Cooking with Truffles is a hands-on masterclass on how to incorporate truffles in your cooking in a way that showcases their exquisite flavour. Truffles are expensive so learning how to get the most out of them is essential.  

In the class you use the freshest truffle sourced from Blue Frog Truffles in Sutton across three courses.

We begin with a sublime truffle soufflé, followed by a caramelised soy beef fillet with truffled beurre blanc, truffled fondant potatoes and seasonal vegetables, and conclude with truffle ice-cream and a decadent chocolate chestnut roulade.

At the end of your hands-on class you sit down to dine on the three courses you have created accompanied, if you choose, by paired wines, 

Want more truffle in your day?

Foodish has teamed up with Blue Frog Truffles to offer The Full Truffle. A whole day of truffle excitement.

Begin the day with a truffle hunt at Blue Frog Truffles. Follow the truffle dogs as they uncover black gold. Learn about truffle cultivation and sip on some delicious truffle soup. Then head to Foodish for a truffle class and late lunch. You can book your truffle hunt through Blue Frog Truffle. The truffle hunt begins at 10 am sharp at the truffle farm and finishes at 12 noon. The cooking class in the Foodish Cooking School begins at 12.30 pm, with lunch served by 2.30pm. The drive from Blue Frog Truffles to the Foodish Kitchen is under 30 minutes, so all very doable!

Survival Cooking Series ( 4 Events )

You might think that survival cooking is for arctic adventurers. Maybe so, but this version is something that we can all very much relate to. Its about how we possibly fit cooking into our everyday busy lives.

We know that cooking at home is the healthy option, but how to do it with hungry mouths and creative energies spent at the end of a busy day?

Survival cooking! Whether you are single, venturing out on your own for the first time, an empty nester or cooking for a family, this is your series!

Over four weeks you will learn how to cook simple, healthy and EXCITING food that can be scaled up or down to fit your own circumstances.

How about spiced lamb pies, garlic pepper-beef stir fry, chicken and chorizo paella, Thai poached chicken, sage and ricotta french toast, pancetta, spinach and ricotta bake?

Just a taste of the three dishes you will be making in each class. That's how quick these delicious meals can be!  

Learn cooking techniques and how to organise your kitchen to make cooking a breeze.

The classes are Wednesday evenings 25 July and 1, 8 & 15 August, 6-8 pm.

$99 per class including antipasto on arrival, dinner and wine.

Putting the sublime into simple. That's what you will do in survival cooking!
