Classy cooking lessons

August 2009

Two ideas for August. First, gather seven of your closest and richest friends and book a night Cooking with Christine — Manfield that is — now at her Universal Restaurant (Republic 2 Courtyard Palmer Street Darlinghurst, Ph 9331 0709). For (from) just $7000, you’ll spend two hours in the kitchen with Chrissie learning how to cook a dinner menu based on your preferred cuisine. The price includes full use of the restaurant’s facilities, menu design, dinner and wine. Snap it up. Have you spent Kev’s gift yet?

A tad more affordable are the Holly Davis classes. You’ll know Holly as the original cook at Iku Wholefoods (she hasn’t been there for a very long time) and a big supporter of organic food. She has a series of cooking lessons this month at Palm Beach. Refresh, Restore and Nourish with Traditional Wholefoods is four three-hour classes for $410 (August 5, 12, 19 & 26); Capturing Cultures is about making your own probiotics, on August 29, four hours for $115.
