After a long winter the weather warms and we crave freshness and liveliness in our food. It's time to embrace the bounty of the spring and summer seasons in our cooking, and that's our quest in these Monday Masterclasses.  We're cooking colourful tapas, festive Mexican, summer Thai, spring Italian, Provincial French, fresh and healthyVietnamese. 

And then there is Christmas! How about mastering a Xmas seafood paella, christmas duck, and our tasteful take on turducken with some elegant turducken rolls. We've got baking classes too. Learn how to make savoury and dessert roulades (a great option for Christmas lunch!), and master DIY chocolate truffles.

The classes are Mondays 6.30-8.30 pm in the Foodish Cooking School at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets.

$99 per class. This includes antipasto on arrival, wine and dinner (for savoury classes). Click on the link to see the classes.

Learn the art of dumpling making from Chinese-Australian master chef David L.

This is a unique opportunity in Canberra to learn from someone with unique expertise in the full range of Chinese cookery.

As a child, David worked in his family's Chinese restaurant in Dickson, and went on to excel as a chef in his own right, winning many awards, and working in a range of modern European fine-dining establishments. David is passionate about the cuisine of his heritage, and very keen to impart his knowledge, skills and love of the art of Chinese cooking.

In the class you will make a variety of dumplings, and enjoy these for dinner with a traditional rice congee and celery salad.

The class is on Monday 26 November, 6.30-9pm in the Foodish Cooking School at the Belconnen Markets.  Cost $99

In this series we celebrate the bounty of the seasons and the flavours of the world in our summer and autumn cooking.

Summer is about getting together with family and friends to share delicious food in a relaxed and fun setting. In our summer classes we teach you exciting flavours and techniques from Spanish, French and Asian cooking to add to your summer repertoire. Dishes that you will crave to share with others!

Autumn in Canberra is glistening. The days are warm, the evenings more cool, and the produce is abundant. We finish the series with two classes that play with this beautiful end-of-summer produce in ways true to two regions in southern Europe, first, in French provincial cooking and, second, in Tuscan cooking.

This series is on Monday evenings, 6.30-8.30 pm. The classes take place at the Foodish Cooking School at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets and are $99 each. 

Cook and eat wonderful food in these classes, sip on a glass or two of wine, and make new friends as you connect through cooking.

Spice-scented lamb, pomegranate-glazed kebabs, chicken shish tawook? The spices and flavourings of the Middle-East pair magnificently with a range of barbecue cuts of meat.

In this class we learn about these pairings and experience how delicious they are by preparing and barbecuing a range of meats, all enjoyed with a colourful Middle-Eastern salad and flavoursome pilaf.

The class is Sunday January 20, 2-5 pm and Sunday 24 February, 2-5 pm.. $110 including wine, nibbles and a delicious barbecue meal.
