The Lonely Planet Guide 2011 named Banks Peninsula and Ground Culinary Centre as one of the top ten destinations for cooking classes in the world!!!
Since the 2011 earthquake and the loss of our building we are now focussing on one style of cooking class: Dinner classes only. The Master Class series may return in the future. See below for updated details.
Our regular cooking classes showcase recipes from around the world. These are held once a month and are hosted either by Jenny or by a special guest chef.
Each month offers a different region and style of cooking. It is a small, relaxed gathering where you will not only learn techniques, skills and recipes but also feast on the delicious meal you have prepared.
During the fun evening you will learn the secrets of international cuisine and enjoy the wine selection we have matched to the food. The classes run from 3 pm until your plates are clean. Come hungry!
