The Sydney Seafood School is heralded as one of country’s best cooking schools, especially if you want to rub shoulders and pick the brains of Sydney’s elite chefs. Get hooked on honing your culinary skills! A huge 13,000 eager foodies walk through the doors of the cooking school each year, which is great testament to the enlightening experience on offer.
Established in 1989, the cooking school was created to educate fish market goers on ways to cook octopus, squid, red mullet, crab and mussels—all foods that, at the time, were not commonly cooked at home. Sydney Seafood School has come along leaps and bounds since its creation, now offering expert classes in a wide range of international cuisine.
The cooking school presents beautifully with its recently renovated slick designer appeal. Step into the auditorium style demonstration room where you’ll be shown what the day ahead will hold. Your Chef will most likely make it look like a cinch to prepare some mighty impressive food, however you may very well find it a little more challenging when you step into the hands-on kitchen! Step up to your gleaming stainless steel cooking island and get sizzling. The good news is, you can put your newly learnt skills into practice with the chef and assistants at arm’s reach. This is the best bit—you can pick the brains of some of the country’s best foodie masterminds to perfect your technique.
Then it’s time to adjourn to the dining room to feast on your creation, to be enjoyed with a perfectly matched glass of wine—talk about reward for your efforts!
