We offer cooking schools and other experiences. Learn how to make pasta from scratch or curries-not-from-a-jar in our fully commercial teaching kitchen. Or make jams or relishes from surplus garden produce. Your host and owner, Wendy Jubb Stoney offers tuition from her background of cooking with some of Australia's best chefs. Flinders Island Gourmet Retreat is located at Cooma House on 6 hectares of sculptured bushland with private tracks, views and wildlife at Badger Corner on the southern end of Flinders Island. There are 6 guest rooms each with en-suites and separate toilet. Sitting rooms, library, open fire, north facing courtyard and views to the sea all offer peace and harmony. And there's Nespresso machines! The parklike setting mean you can discover a wallaby or a wombat; you can watch the sea eagles or hear the honk of cape barren geese flying overhead. Indulge in good food as all meals are hand crafted using produce from the garden and the local environment. The light filled commercial kitchen caters for private functions and is purpose designed for cooking schools. Please visit the website to learn of upcoming events including cooking schools by Wendy or local and visiting chefs.
