Leaving home? Empty nesters? Feeding yourself on a budget? Cooking for two and don't know what to do with all of the leftovers? Sick of take-aways?

Any of these sound like you?

In Survival Cooking you learn how to cook delicious small-quantity meals that are exciting, nutritious and easy to make. Foodish shows you how to plan a week's shopping and cooking, how to repurpose left-overs, and how to be a quick and efficient home cook.

Survival Cooking is not only about you learning to cook, or cook in new ways. It's also about cooking for the planet, minimising food waste, and ensuring a healthy diet.

This series is for young adults leaving home for the first time, time-poor singles who cook for themselves, empty nesters who need to learn to cook in different ways, and anyone who want to sharpen their kitchen smarts.

Mondays 6, 13 & 20 January, 6.30-9 pm, including a delicious meal and drinks.

$285 the series.  $110 per class.        

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, 6.30-9 pm. The classes take place at the Foodish Cooking School at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets and are $109 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.

Come to Foodish for an evening of cooking and dining with your valentine!

We know that cooking together is a fabulous way to share the love. That's why we are opening our doors to all foodie romantics in Canberra.

Our menu has something for everyone. A loved-up French meal prepared together including a delicate valentines dessert. Sexy canapes and bubbles on arrival and an evening of beautiful food, wine and fun.
