Monthly cooking classes, Food Garden

Vegetarian/Vegan food is tasty and nutritious and often cheaper to make than meat-based meals. Our cooking classes are aimed at growing your collection of non-meat recipes, and increasing your confidence to make them. Even the vegetarian dishes tend to favour vegan dishes, and with most there is the option to add cheese/eggs or not. Classes begin at 6.30pm at the café, and during the first part we show you how to make the featured recipes. At around 7.45pm we sit down to dinner, to share the dishes we have made. Participants are welcome to bring along wine to share, or juice, coffee and tea are available to purchase. Classes are limited to 12 maximum. The cost is $35.00 per person, payable beforehand to confirm your place, or on the night by special arrangement. See the website for more information and to register
