Do I get to eat the food?

All food that is made in the class is served for the participants to enjoy whilst the chef continues the demonstration.


What if I have dietary requirements?

We are happy to advise the chef if you have any dietary requirements however we cannot guarantee that the chef will be able to cater for these changes. In some cases it may be easy for the chef to create a separate serving without a particular ingredient, however if the ingredient is integral to the recipe (eg dairy in a panna cotta) it may be that no alternative can be offered and you will have to elect to not eat that particular dish. If this is the case our chefs will be more than happy to offer advice and suggestions for creating the dish at home using alternative ingredients.

 

When will the new classes be up?

Our classes are released six times a year:

December - Feb/Mar classes

February – Apr/May classes

The client was so happy and even said we spoilt them :-) So great job for us.You were very helpful during all the process and it was a pleasure doing business with you. Hopefully we can repeat that million times.Everything was great. Food, wine, Chef, the facility...It was just wonderful. My boss was really happy so I feel we did a fantastic job. The client even didn't know about the existence of the LG Kitchen, they were surprised and am pretty sure they will be recommending it'. - Camila

'I attended the French Cooking Class at the South Melbourne Market last night and have to say that it was the best value for money I have had in a long time. To be greeted with a place setting each and sitting back to watch Emma prepare four courses of fine French cuisine, accompanied by French Champagne and Shiraz, and serve us was an unexpected and delightful surprise. Well done South Melbourne Market and the LG Kitchen...keep up the great work and thanks, I'll be back'. - Leanne

'Would like to thank you and the South Melbourne Market along with the LG Cooking School for holding Megan's hens on Saturday night. It was a brilliant event and my sister has not stopped boasting about it to everyone. A special thank you to Emma and Sue who ran the night as smoothly as possible. We were highly entertained and fed until our belly's could hold no more...Overall a wonderful night and I will be highly recommending LG Cooking Shcool to anyone looking to have an entertaining yet classy girls night out'. - Leonie
