Estate Tuscany Cooking School

The cooking school can be either a relaxing and fun way to experience a spectacular meal whilst learning about culinary art; or a team based master chef challenge aimed at building teamwork skills, cooperation and leadership whilst having fun at the same time. Get a group of friends, or colleagues together and escape to the Hunter Valley Wine Country for something a little different…

Our exclusive hands-on cooking school requires a minimum of 10 guests at a time and takes approximately three hours, headed by our Executive Chef. You and your team will be involved in an afternoon or night of hands on experience.

Smaller groups cook together; larger groups generally break into teams. Attendees participate in the preparation and creation of a stunning two course meal. The style all depends on which class you select between our Master Chef Challenge, The Guided Cooking School or the Pizza, Pasta Master Class. 

Our Master Chef Challenge is the most popular choice for team building with face paced, exciting cooking experiences. A great team building experience and or a bit of fun between friends and colleagues. On arrival guests are asked to split up into groups, each group will need to come up with a creative name for themselves. They will then be taken to the cooking area where the chef will introduce himself and run through the rules and how the challenge takes place.

Teams each receive a “mystery Box”, then have to decide how to create a 2 course menu. There will be a set time to create each course which is then judged by our Executive Chef and Management. 

There will be an overall team winner for the day and a chef’s dish of the day being judged on creativity, team work, presentation and most importantly; the taste. Each group dish up enough meals to feed all with an extra to be judged. 

Pricing for Master Chef Challenge and the Guided Cooking School is $135.00pp – this includes a glass of Tyrrell’s Moore Creek Wine on arrival.

Additional beverages can be ordered on the day and paid for by the guests individually or as a group with a bar tab.

The Location of each cooking school will depend on the group’s size, time of day and style of cooking school selected.
