All Day Hands–on Class and Lunch: For 8 people only at The Lovely Old Federal Village School of Arts Hall, Federal (Byron Bay Hinterland)

I’m really happy to announce my winter schedule of hands-on cooking classes in the Byron Bay Hinterland in June, July and August this year. My long held wish to teach all-day classes close to home to make the most of our beautiful locally grown produce has become a reality these past months, and I couldn’t be happier. The classes are held in the lovely 120 year old village hall in Federal (those of you who have read my Country Cookbook will know it well!) It’s a day of cooking, laughter and teaching, eating cake, sharing a long table lunch, and simply enjoying being with like-minded people in this warm and welcoming space.

Demonstration Pastry Class for 12 people only at The Lovely Old Federal Village School of Arts Hall, Federal (Byron Bay Hinterland)

As a change of pace from my hands-on cooking classes, this weekend I’ll be teaching two demonstration classes on tips and techniques for perfecting three different pastries. Many people tell me they’re scared of making pastry yet really want to do so, so I thought it was about time I did a class to help take that anxiety away. Working with pastry is one of my favourite things to do, and I’d love you to join me for these special workshops.

All Day Hands–on Class and Lunch: For 8 people only at The Lovely Old Federal Village School of Arts Hall, Federal (Byron Bay Hinterland)

In this class we’ll cook up a veritable feast using local produce. And there is certainly plenty of that close by, as we’re in the heartland of macadamia, pecan, blueberry and coffee plantations, plus a multitude of organic farms and artisan producers. The focus will be on creating vegetable-based dishes (although there will be some meat too) which are in tune with the season and that use our abundance of beautiful produce in simple but different ways. The classes are held in the lovely 120 year old village hall in Federal (those of you who have read my Country Cookbook will know it well!) It’s a day of cooking, laughter and teaching, eating cake, sharing a long table lunch, and simply enjoying being with like-minded people in this warm and welcoming space.

All Day Hands–on Class and Lunch: For 8 people only at The Lovely Old Federal Village School of Arts Hall, Federal (Byron Bay Hinterland)

The warmth is already starting to creep back into the air again here in August, and it’s the month in which I always feel an urgent need to make the most of the late winter produce before it disappears for another year. This is when winter greens are at their best, the blood oranges are on our trees, and beautiful pumpkins abound – many of which will make their way into our dishes. The classes are held in the lovely 120 year old village hall in Federal (those of you who have read my Country Cookbook will know it well!) It’s a day of cooking, laughter and teaching, eating cake, sharing a long table lunch, and simply enjoying being with like-minded people in this warm and welcoming space.

Exclusive private cooking classes: hands-on for 8 people only

I started my pop-up cooking school in the lovely old Federal Village Hall in the Byron Bay Hinterland last year, and I’m beyond thrilled at the response I’ve received to my classes. I really didn’t know how they would go, but am delighted to say that they’ve been a great success! A number of people have already enquired about the possibility of me doing exclusive hands-on private classes for a group of friends, family, or corporate development. I just wanted to let you know that I’m really happy to do so, but a group needs to be 8 people to make the day viable. Depending on what you’re after, the total cost for a full day for 8 people including a fabulous lunch that we cook together, would be $2800. If you would like to find out more about such a special event, please contact me at belindajeffery24@gmail.com
