Cooking classes in Chewton 2015

Building on the successful collaboration with Prospect Cottage in 2014, I will be running seasonal classes and Sunday lunches in Chewton in 2015. Just like the family Sunday lunches I used to help mamma make, you will be helping to prepare a 3-course lunch and learning techniques used in Italian cooking. We will then share our meal in the main dining room, which is light-filled and has glorious views of the property.


Classes run from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm
There will be eight participants per class
Cost per person: $150 and includes hands-on class, lunch with complimentary italian or italian style wine and a take-home recipe booklet

Prospect Cottage is located in northeast Victoria is approximately 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne. It is surrounded by woodlands and overlooks a shallow valley. The property has horses, several fruit trees and a little herb garden. One of the owners of Prospect Cottage, Ben, will be your host and will be helping us out in the kitchen.
