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 and more.
Some class topics are now conducted by Sally’s daughter Stephanie, who has her own food business, Steph’s Kitchen. These classes include Sausage Making and Gifts from the Kitchen.
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 us know and we will set up a session to cater to this.
