We offer in-house cooking schools - hands on and/or demonstrations in a light filled commercial teaching kitchen at a luxury guesthouse where we can cater for private functions too. Seasonal cooking schools of two nights accommodation with all meals and a day of hands-on school are offered. Minimum numbers apply or book the whole accommodation for your get-away for a wedding, special party or group activity. Make pasta from scratch or curries-not-from-a-jar. Make jams or relishes from seasonal surplus garden produce. Your host and owner, Wendy Jubb Stoney is a trained teacher with a background of cooking with some of Australia's best chefs. Indulge yourself with meals using produce from the garden and the local environment. Sit at the century old dining table and enjoy being served, matched with something from the cellar. Visiting the website shows upcoming events including cooking schools by Wendy or local and visiting chefs. Stay a few days and do a tour. It is a luxury guesthouse with 5 guest rooms and en-suites with separate toilet. Rooms have bespoke furnishings and artworks. The sitting rooms, library, open fire, north facing courtyard and views to the sea all offer peace and harmony in whatever season.
