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.

Sweet Easter breads feature in Easter celebrations around the world, from Panne di pasqua in Italy through to  pinca in Croatia and tsoureki in Greece.  
 
In this series we guide you in the skills necessary to create these and other sweet breads, from English hot cross buns and Swedish cinnamon scrolls, to French brioche, and your own Easter sweet bread creations.  
 
The classes develop the skills through a step-by-step cumulative process to ensure that you leave confident in working with yeast and yeast doughs. In the last class you make your own Tsoureki or Panne di pasqua. 
 
You will have a lot of doughy fun, and your family and friends will be delighted with all the sweet treats you bring home.
 
The classes are on Wednesday evenings, 27 March and 2 & 10 April, 6-9 pm.
 
$250 the series or $99 for individual classes.

Want one more fabulous thing to do in Canberra in autumn? Pick and eat wild mushrooms!

We are so lucky. Canberra is surrounded by forests filled most autumns with an abundance of edible wild mushrooms.

Want to know where to go and what to pick?

Foodish has teamed up with FungiCo to invite you on a mushroom foraging adventure. Learn about edible mushrooms , develop foraging techniques, and gather an abundance of delicious edible mushrooms (weather permitting).

Breath in the fresh forest air and enjoy a mushroomy lunch cooked over an open campfire.

You'll be given directions on where our rendez-vous point is before the forage. Wear warm clothes, sturdy boots and bring a large carry bag and a small sharp knife.

Rendez-vous 10.30 am

Forage 11-12.30 pm

Pastry making is such a versatile art! With the essential principles of pastry work under your belt, you can tackle the full range of pastry options, from shortcrust, to puff, to choux, to danish.

Accompanying each of these types of pastry are classic fillings, such as frangipane or crème patissière. Top your frangipane with fresh fruit, and you have one of the most delicious tarts you could possibly imagine. Or, you might just want your pastry plain. Imaging being able to make your own croissants!

You will learn to do all this and more in this four-part workshop that runs over four consecutive Wednesday evenings from 15 May through to 5 June.. In each class you will be making a selection of tarts and pastries that you will then take home to share. We'll also make sure that you make something very delicious to eat in the class.

The cost of the workshop series is $350 for the four classes. You can take the classes individually, but we recommend you do all four, as each class will build on knowledge and techniques taught in the previous class. The cost of individual classes is $99
