Join us this school holiday as we embark on a culinary adventure. Together, we will emulate the thrill and rush of a busy kitchen with vibrant colours, tastes and smells as if you were a contestant itself on Master Chef.

In this program, you’ll learn how to prepare and cook a wide variety of different dishes, each day, focusing on entirely different cuisine. Our expert chef will guide our guests (10 years+) to prepare various menus over the duration of this course. We’ll learn about knife skills, food safety, how to prepare and cook vegetables, meats, and seafood and also how to make dessert.

The course focuses on understanding food through local ingredients and a global perspective. Participants learn about the seasonality and origin of common foods. We will also explore contemporary issues relating to food justice, food wastage, and sustainability. Students will learn how to make healthy food choices as well as learn how to make a budget. Students may participate in a single class or the full 4 day-workshop throughout the duration of the week.
