Cooking School

The Cooking School at Lake House allows guests to interact with likeminded foodies and learn from some of Australia’s best & most interesting chefs. Classes are held in the purpose built Cooking School kitchen and scheduled most weekends throughout the year and on request subject to availability for groups.

Hands on Cooking Classes are an intimate affair with the expert guidance of two Lake House chefs for 10 guests. The group prepare a three course seasonal menu with plenty of time for questions and individual practise. Seasonal Masterclasses offer the opportunity to learn from some of the best chefs in Australia in a demonstration format. These Masterclasses are enormously popular as it’s a rare opportunity to have such varied and quality talent in the one Cooking School on the one day. Truly a special Australian experience. 

The Cooking School calendar is set in advance so that visitors can plan their travel around preferred hands on or demonstration experiences.
