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 from 3 September through to 24 September.. 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

After a long winter the weather warms and we crave freshness and liveliness in our food. It's time to embrace the bounty of the spring and summer seasons in our cooking, and that's our quest in these Monday Masterclasses.  We're cooking colourful tapas, festive Mexican, summer Thai, spring Italian, Provincial French, fresh and healthy Vietnamese. 

And then there is Christmas! How about mastering a Xmas seafood paella, christmas duck, and our tasteful take on turducken with some elegant turducken rolls. We've got baking classes too. Learn how to make savoury and dessert roulades (a great option for Christmas lunch!), and master DIY chocolate truffles.

The classes are Mondays 6.30-8.30 pm in the Foodish Cooking School at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets.

$99 per class. This includes antipasto on arrival, wine and dinner (for savoury classes). Click on the link to see the classes.

Foodish is running two full-day classes during these spring holidays. 

  • Wednesday 2 October— French, 9.30am-4.30pm
  • Thursday 10 October—Turkish, 9.30am-4.30pm

During the Foodish day the kids will:

  • go on a tour of the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets to source key ingredients
  • set up their own cooking stations at the beginning of cooking and clean up at the end
  • have morning and afternoon tea
  • cook and eat a delicious meal that they can then cook at home (with varying levels of supervision)
  • play games about food
  • bake food in the afternoon that they can take home 

The classes are well supervised by experienced educators and take place in the Foodish Kitchen at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets.

Each class is $140 per child. 

Foodish corporate cooking events are an innovative and stimulating way to entertain clients, encourage team building or celebrate a special occasion. No culinary skills are expected and your group will work under the expert guidance of our chefs. Our menus are on-trend and exciting and can be tailored to please any group: get your team preparing sumptuous sushi, exquisite party canapés, or an elegant 3-course meal! Whatever your taste, we will work with you to create a unique and memorable event.

We've had lots of requests for cooking classes that teach essential culinary skills, from knife sharpening and chopping, through to making stocks and sauces, portioning and filetting meat and fish, knowing the right cooking techniques to use for different produce, and, in general, learning proficiency in the kitchen.  

Well here it is!

In each class you will develop your skills in cooking techniques, learn the principles of cooking a variety of styes of food, learn vital information about the produce that you are using, and cook wonderful dishes from around the world and at home.

In the process you will chop, sautée, roast, blanche, whisk, deglaze, knead, and do just about everything else you need to become a confident cook.

This four-class series is on Wednesdays, beginning on 16 October and concluding on 6 November, 6.30-9 pm.

The series is $360.

The classes include antipasto and drinks on arrival, dinner (the dishes you have cooked), and take-home lesson instructions and recipes.
