Epicurean Food and Wine Tours love all things food and wine. Over the last few months we have been stepping outside the fabulous wineries we visit and looking into some exclusive cooking experiences available with Melbourne Cooking Classes.
Cooking has become a wonderful creative daily ritual that, well, it just makes us happy!
We have been exploring the many “classes and schools” on offer to enhance your food and wine experiences. Our research has been in the world class wine regions of the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula and the bustling cultural melting pot that is Melbourne. We have found a lot and plan to share them with you right here!
Classes range from those led by professional chefs to those run by great home cooks who can share a thing or two about creating delicious dishes for the dinner table. The best part is, each session includes lunch or dinner, so you’ll be tasting the food you just learned to cook fresh off the stove.
Epicurean promotes a culinary day adventure blending food, cooking, culture and wine in a personalized and fun manner.
Master a brand new recipe taught with with local, seasonal produce and be the envy of all your friends at your next dinner party. With masterclasses and hands-on workshops at restaurants, wineries and purpose-built schools, you’ll be making a meal of Victoria’s best in no time exploring organic seasonal flavors from its own garden & small producers in the region visited.
Gather your favourite wannabe culinary kings and queens, choose from an enticing range of classes, and enjoy the fruits of your labour over a feast with a matching local wine.
