Pastry Workshop 2018 ( 5 Events )

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 Tuesday evenings in 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 $340 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 $95.

Under Pressure cooking series 18 ( 4 Events )

Under pressure? Want slow food fast? 

No problem. Use a pressure cooker!

Pressure cooking is fabulous for speeding up cooking, and retaining and deepening flavour. While it is great for moist slow-cooked dishes, such as stews, curries, and tajines—speeding up the cooking time and reducing the overall time by around two-thirds—it is also great for dry-cooking vegetables, puddings and moist cakes.

Experience the full gamut of cooking styles and techniques in this three-part cooking series.

During the class you will cook a two-course family meal in your pressure cooker and take it home to feed the family with. A cooking class and family meal in one!

The classes are on Thursday 15, 22 & 29 June, 6.30-8.30 pm in the Foodish Kitchen at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets.

The cost of individual classes is $99. This includes dinner and wine and a take-home meal. The series is $270.

Cooking with Truffles--Masterclass and truffle lunch ( 14 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!
