Cooking School Classes
Cooking classes are held at the Highfield Historic Site at Stanley in North-West Tasmania. Stanley is a picturesque fishing village surrounded by ocean and is the perfect home-base for exploring the beautiful North-West Coast. While in Stanley join us for a class and learn about the provenance of food in this vibrant and productive part of the world.
Our classes change with the seasons, so no two classes are alike. We limit our classes to 8 people to ensure the class is personal and engaging for everyone. This also allows us to tailor each class to the participants individual needs such as food allergies or intolerances.
Time: Classes typically run from 10am to 6pm.
Delicious four course meal showcasing local seasonal produce
Hands on teaching of recipes
Recipes to take home
Farm tour with local producer
Cost: $265 per person.
What to bring: Please dress comfortably and bring warm clothes for visiting producers and harvesting produce. Comfortable closed shoes are advised. Aprons, recipes and writing implements will be provided.
Getting There: Highfield Historic Site is located 5 minutes drive from Stanley. There are limited taxi services available in the area. We recommend assigning a designated driver where possible to ensure you get home safely.
