Cafe Cooking 101


This introductory course starts with basic knife skills and how to safely cut vegetables, dice carrots and slice cabbage, mince garlic. You then transform your vegetables cuts into delicious salads, finished with classic mayonnaise and vinaigrette.

You will learn to make blueberry muffins and cheese scones, bake off some cookies and then make your own shortcrust pastry for a quiche Lorraine filled with bacon and savoury egg custard.

We will cover cooking with eggs - poached and scrambled and making hollandaise for eggs benedict.

This course is perfect if you are new to cooking and want to learn some of the classic recipes that you find in New Zealand’s innovative cafés.

You also get to take home what you have made - if you don’t eat it first!

Bring along some containers. A certificate of attendance will be awarded at the completion of this course.
