Blue Mountains Cooking School


About Our School

About Us - The Cooking Instructors

When you go along to any class it's always good to know a little bit about who will be running the show... So, we are two cookbook authors who have also been running cooking classes and workshops throughout Sydney for almost 10 years, mainly on Sydney's Lower North Shore, but also in the Blue Mountains.

We are dedicated foodies with a real passion for producing food which is not only delicious to eat but also easy to make at home.  Our recipes are easy to follow and unpretentious, yet the resulting dishes are delicious and inspired.

Our workshops have been a success over the years because we are constantly innovating with new ideas and concepts, as well as providing insight into traditional cooking methods and classic techniques. Our experience as cooking instructors and writers has taught us which recipes work well and what food types people enjoy.

Our students are always discovering something new, as we share our insights and own experiences with you, and we create a real environment of exchange, learning, and fun as the cooking takes place.

Come and join a class - we would love to see you!

About Our Classes
Our classes are run in Wentworth Falls in the Blue  Mountains (approx 90 mins from Sydney). They are a great way to spend a day getting away from it all, meeting new people and sharing the experience of creating a meal together.

Our kitchen is purpose-built for cooking demonstrations but if you would like some hands-on involvement, then we offer that, too! We teach attendees about cooking techniques, ingredients and provide recipe hints and tips along the way. At all our classes, we sit down and enjoy the dishes we have made, so people never walk away hungry!

We run cooking classes on all types of cuisine - French, Mediterranean, Moroccan, Indian, Baking, Australian Fare, the list goes on! Have you got an idea for a class? Let us know!

About Our Location

Our classes are held in a beautiful Wentworth Falls homestead which is set on an acre of gardens and orchard. Originally built as a guest-house retreat in the 1920s, the house has all the splendour of its orginal era, combined with the comfort of modern times.

The demonstration kitchen is the perfect setting for the relaxed observation of a cooking class, but if you feel like day-dreaming, just glance out the window to see our sweeping pines and blossoming fruit trees. Oh the delight!

The Blue Mountains Cooking School is more like a cooking retreat. Come and join in and see why people just love coming to our classes.
