Meet your local host Ally in her Diamond Creek kitchen where she will teach you to make two local dishes from scratch, using fresh ingredients and herbs from her garden. Before you start your hands-on cooking class, Ally will give you a small tour of her beautiful garden and show you all the fruits, vegetables and herbs she grows. After you pluck a few herbs together, you will cook along with Ally in her large, beautiful kitchen.
The cooking portion of the experience will last for 1-2 hours and you will learn to make a salad and a main dish. Potential dishes you may prepare are freshly baked sour dough bread or focaccia served with an Australian dukkah and homemade goat cheese drizzled with lemon, followed by chicken which has been deboned and stuffed with wild rice, herbs, walnuts, currants and lemon zest and then roasted and served with homemade chutneys or chilli jamhoney.
Come join this welcoming host for a private and authentic culinary experience!
