    The overall experience was great! The teachers were very helpful and informative. The recipe was really innovative and made great use of Australian native ingredients. I really enjoyed it and would definitely come back!

    Fresh damper with a cream/goat cheese and native pesto dip, kingfish marinated in native herbs and spices and tender kangaroo loin with assorted veggies, very appetising and delicious. You'sre in for a treat!

    The class was amazing, everything that we cooked was super tasty and we learnt a lot of new ingredients. Our Chef knew a lot of the Australian ingredients and he was very friendly recommending where to get those ingredients. I will recommend this class to my friends, it was fun!
