I’d recommend this to anyone with an interest in cooking. Ryan the host keeps the class relaxed and supplies some awesome food at the end. Nice beer and wine too.

I went to use my gift voucher that had expired 3 months earlier and Ryan would not honour it. As a fellow business that sells gift vouchers I find the prospect of keeping money for not providing a service totally unethical.

Not only informative and interesting this course was delicious. Ryan was engaging and deeply knowledgeable and passionate. The food at the end was mouth watering, tender, tasty and immensely satisfying. Well worth the time and the $$.

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
