Cooking Courses

If you would like to know more about the professional culinary arts, you can watch our top chef’s fingers at work in a cooking demonstration. Once the demo is complete, participants are served with the master’s menu. If you would like to put your own culinary arts to the test under professional supervision, this is where you can book an after-work course with like-minded hobby chefs.
