This is a wonderful opportunity for you to experience one of the biggest local markets close to Melbourne! You'll have the chance to select from a wide variety of local fish, meat, poultry, vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs, dairy produce, sweets and more. After you buy a few ingredients for your cooking class, your host Tonya will drive you back to her apartment where you'll join her for a hands-on cooking experience. You'll learn to make three different dishes from scratch before you sit down to enjoy what you've prepared. Tonya will give you an overview of the menu that you'll be preparing for the day along with some tips and hacks for the preparation and cooking process. A few dishes that you may prepare are oysters and verjus jelly with eschallot dressing, green peppercorn and chive jus, or slow roasted ocean trout with creamy, lemony mayonnaise.
At the end of your experience you'll get a folder to take home with all the recipes and tips of the day!
