With the gorgeous Noosa setting the scene, he will learn the tricks to traditional Italian fare complete with a sit down lunch to taste all of his hard work! With lemoncello to top it all off, he will gain the skills to recreate it time and time again.



We really love Italian food – and for those of us fortunate enough to have visited the gorgeous boot shaped European country, we know there is much more to the delicious cuisine than just our favourites, pizza and pasta! The Italian Long Lunch Cooking Class gives students a holistic experience, showcasing dishes from regional parts of Italy, learned by the teachers during their recent trip to the country.

During this interactive, fun and relaxed class, designed to be intimate with a maximum of only 10 people, students will help put together 7 delicious traditional Italian dishes with Noosa National Park and tropical gardens surrounding them. They will be able to take in the beauty on arrival, where they will enjoy a muffin straight from the oven, and a cup of café style coffee or tea on the veranda overlooking it all.

Once they have met their new classmate friends, students will use the freshest local ingredients learn how to put together the likes of:

- Assorted crostini

- Salsa Verde topped eggs

- Risotto with porcini and truffle oil

- Pork fillet wrapped in prosciutto

- Cherry tomatoes with sautéed radicchio

- Panzanella salad

- Strawberry jam topped crostata

- Freshly brewed coffee and lemoncello

Once they have finished up in the kitchen, participants will gather for a full sit down meal of generous servings showcasing their delicious dishes. Complete with lemoncello from their class, they can relax, chat and enjoy their food just as the Italians do! All of their efforts will be combined into easy to follow recipes, complete with tips, fact sheets and class notes to be taken home in a folder to easily recreate in their own kitchen.
