Cooking Classes Sunshine Coast

Whilst the Sunshine Coast has endless restaurants, bars and cafes to indulge in – sometimes it’s nice to know that you can whip something up other than frozen pizza when you’ve got company.

Whether you’re a total novice starting from scratch, looking to impress that special someone or just want to brush up on your skills – there’s a cooking school for every level and cuisine.

Spirit House | Yandina

One of the best-known cooking schools on the coast, this Asian influenced foodie-wonderland is at the top of its game. Classes range from mastering Asian fundamentals like stocks, pastes and spice mixes from scratch to creating seafood, barbeque and gluten free banquets. The day includes lunch and a cheeky wine. We recommend booking far in advance, this place is POPULAR.

Spicers Tamarind | Noosa

As luxe as the rest of the super chic Tamarind Spicers Retreat, go on a global food odyssey without leaving Noosa. Perfect fluffy spinach gnocchi, explore the luxe regions of France with Escargot a la Bourguinonne and learn the flavours of South East Asia. Long and short courses are available for all skill levels – ready your knives! 

Life’s A Feast | Noosa

The Noosa cooking school lives and breathes its name sake, and it’s evident in their extensive course list! Create the ultimate Moroccan feast and learn to make spiced lamb filo pastries with harissa yogurt and chicken tagine with preserved lemon, or become a health goddess with their Hello Paleo class.

The Cooking School Noosa | Noosa

The luxury cooking school is located on the Noosa River, overlooking Noosa Sound Park. The school offers exclusive classes with highly awarded local chefs. Take a trip around Italy, become a guru of buns and dumplings, master Mexican, say Bonjour! to Southern French cooking and achieve enlightenment with artisanal bread making.

Paterson’s Cooking School | Parrearra

Catering from children to adults and everyone in between, Paterson’s Cooking School is renowned for its extensive and thorough list of cooking classes. Cook your way around the globe and perfect everything from sangria to seafood!

Red Hot Chilli Pepper | Caloundra

If variety is the spice of life, Red Hot Chilli Pepper will kick your tastebuds into overdrive! Delve into the marvels of Mexican, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Moroccan (try saying that quickly) cooking or perfect curry’s, sambols and dahls with the Indian & Sri Lankan classes.

Ready, steady, COOK!
