Cooking Classes re-commence

For some time now I’ve been working towards re-commencing my cooking classes. 

I am very pleased to announce that on December 5th the first of these will be conducted at (and co-hosted by) Glen Derwent, the site of their well-known historic homestead and tearooms.

This idyllic venue is situated on the banks of the Derwent River in New Norfolk.  It is more easily accessible for those who would like to attend.

The time of the class is from 9.30am until 12.30pm. The topic in this instance is  “Preserving the Fruits of the Season”.  

We will be preparing a range of delicious and versatile preserves – for example jam, relish, chutney and cordial using produce from Glen Derwent gardens or accessed locally.

The class is open to locals as well as visitors to our beautiful Derwent Valley.

Either before or after the class, people who attend may like to to visit Tasmania’s friendliest market, Banjo’s New Norfolk Market, held each Saturday from 8am until 2pm.

After the class, there is the opportunity to enjoy lunch at one of the local restaurants or cafés and/or to explore further afield in the Valley.

It is anticipated that going forward, the cooking classes will be held at least once a month at Glen Derwent, moving with the seasons and always making the most of the abundant, diverse and exquisite produce of the Derwent Valley.

The cost per participant for this class is $200, which includes recipe sheets and little sample jars of each of the preserves that are made during the session to take home.
