The Sally Wise Cooking School is situated in the picturesque Derwent Valley near the small township of Molesworth. The Valley is renowned for its abundance of high quality fresh produce and it is from the local growers and her own garden and orchard that Sally will demonstrate how to prepare delicious meals, preserves, fresh cheeses and more.
Every person who attends the class will enjoy tastings as the class progresses as well as a generous morning tea. In fact, it’s advisable not to eat too much breakfast before you come along. Everyone always leaves here very full indeed.
If there are any topics that you would like but are not listed, please feel free to let me know and I will set up a session to cater to this.
Classes are 4 hours duration (9am till 1pm) unless otherwise specified.
