In Detail

Walking into our kitchen at Matters of Taste you are not just entering a teaching arena but a complete experience for the senses and soul. The sights, sounds and smells along with the energy of the facilitators and other participants will give you a tingle of anticipation.

In Hands-On and Technique Workshop style classes, we encourage communication between participants; there are no individual isolated workstations but four large communal tables of six participants. You’ll be able to chat and laugh whilst participating in the action. Preparation and cooking of the dishes is a shared experience and you’ll love the guidance and fun your table’s MasterTeacher contributes to the event. The stoves are gathering points to listen and watch whilst Teachers explain and demonstrate cooking and seasoning techniques. This is where the sizzle is created!

Participants enjoy all the ‘glory’ as there is no washing up; we have brilliant “Scullery Specialists” who keep the kitchen spick and span and are there to assist you also.

Most classes culminate with a convivial meal including much chattering and pride in the beautiful and delicious dishes gracing the table. From a towering Croquembouche to a feast of Tapas or a Curry banquet the food is always eagerly consumed with much conversation.

If you chose a Demonstration style class you are in for a treat. Relax, sit back, watch and learn. This live event is where you experience first-hand as our Master Teachers prepare and cook all the recipes for you. We cook, we serve and we clean up! You are our guests and we love to entertain.

Taking away your own set of laminated colour recipe cards from all classes means the dishes you’ve learnt, can be cooked at home, and you can recreate the magic.

Food serving times in the classes will vary depending on what style of class and what dishes are included. Generally food is served later on in the session so if you think you need it, a snack before arriving may keep the wolves from the door so to speak.

We look forward to seeing you in our kitchen soon.
