What is a social cooking class?

Social cooking is about cooking with others and then sharing the food you cook.

It's not a regular cooking class and you do all the cooking, but you get detailed step-by-step instructions and we have people there to help you.

Sunday 27 October
1.00 - 4.00 pm
$80 per person 

One-dish dinners - meals that you can prepare earlier and then reheat and dish up when you are ready. Perfect for Sunday dinner with leftovers for lunch the following week. We'll start by making a tasty frittata to share for lunch.

Each participant will make one of the dishes below - which you can take home and share with friends or family. Your dish will feed about 6 people (or eat it all yourself over the week).   Choose one of the 5 dishes:

  • Sticky chicken thighs, potato, cherry tomato and asparagus bake (GF and keto)

  • Fish pie - fresh and smoked fish, with mustardy potato & smoked cheese topping (could be adapted to GF or keto)

  • Tasty, savoury shepherd's pie topped with pureed cauliflower & parmesan.  (GF and keto)

  • Puy lentils with eggplant and cherry tomatoes (vegetarian)

  • Keryn's Wellington-famous beef lasagne with mushroom and spinach.

"I liked the fun atmosphere, great preparation and gorgeous food as well as the slight pressure of having a limit to the time you needed to have a dish done by. I will definitely use the recipes at home."
