Monday Summer & Autumn classes 2019

In this series we celebrate the bounty of the seasons and the flavours of the world in our summer and autumn cooking.

Summer is about getting together with family and friends to share delicious food in a relaxed and fun setting. In our summer classes we teach you exciting flavours and techniques from Spanish, French and Asian cooking to add to your summer repertoire. Dishes that you will crave to share with others!

Autumn in Canberra is glistening. The days are warm, the evenings more cool, and the produce is abundant. We finish the series with two classes that play with this beautiful end-of-summer produce in ways true to two regions in southern Europe, first, in French provincial cooking and, second, in Tuscan cooking.

This series is on Monday evenings, 6.30-8.30 pm. The classes take place at the Foodish Cooking School at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets and are $99 each. 

Cook and eat wonderful food in these classes, sip on a glass or two of wine, and make new friends as you connect through cooking.

Let's bring the tastes of Spain into our foodish repertoire. Jamon, manchego, tortilla, chorizo--the produce of Spain lays the foundation for endless combinations of rich tapas flavours.

In this class we will be playing around with this produce to make a selection of tapas perfect for summer entertaining. We'll taste test the results with a glass of sangria (or two!).
