  • Wonderful experience with Chef Mel! She is an excellent instructor and I learnt heaps of great new . Found the class filled with professional yet still practical techniques I can do at home!

Then pop on your apron, get into the kitchen and start cooking!  You will work in small groups as our Chef  guides you step by step. In this class you will learn the tricks and tips to making the perfect pasta and delicious sauces. On top of that, you will also have the opportunity to learn an Italian sweet dish Рthe fabulously light and refreshing panna cotta, a versatile, delicious Italian dessert.  This is fun, informative and will teach you how to produce stunning authentic Italian dishes that are steeped in tradition and flavour!
