Italian Cooking Classes


Salt Meats Cheese: Your Venue for Italian Cooking Classes

Have you been looking for Italian cooking classes in Sydney or Brisbane? Whether you want to learn how to make pasta from scratch or how to craft a gourmet pizza that will wow all your friends and family, Salt Meats Cheese can help. Known for our dining and retail, we also proudly offer a wide variety of cooking classes in Sydney and Brisbane.

What You Can Expect from Our Italian Cooking Classes at Salt Meats Cheese

When it comes to Italian cooking classes in Sydney or Brisbane, we try to stand apart from the crowd by offering something a bit different (and more fun). Here are a few things you can expect if you decide to choose us as your guides to the craft of Italian cooking.

  • A course to suit you: We try to pack our weekends with as many courses as we can, which means there is a fairly wide variety to what we do. Our pizza making courses tend to be our most popular, but you can also find a class to learn various other aspects of Italian cooking. With us, you can also learn how to make fettuccine, tortellini, ravioli, gnocchi, Italian meatballs and more.
  • A good time: Food is serious business, but that doesn’t mean that learning to cook can’t be fun. Rather than making our classes into overly academic experiences, we focus on having fun with our participants. We pair many of our courses with an adult beverage, and there’s always a delicious meal at the finish line. The result is a delicate balance between an educational experience and a social one.
  • A quick, concise experience: We know that committing to lengthy or multi-session courses can discourage otherwise interested parties from doing something such as a cooking class. We try to make our classes as accessible as possible: they’re single-session, last just a couple of hours and require no prior cooking experience or skills. We want everyone to come and cook with us!

The Benefits of Our Italian Cooking Classes

Beyond having a good time and learning a new skill, there’s plenty of value to be found in a quality cooking class. Here are just a few of the reasons to join us for our next course at Salt Meats Cheese.

  • Step-by-step guidance: Anyone can find a recipe online or follow instructions from a YouTube video, but there’s something about having an experienced cook there to walk you through the step-by-step process that makes learning how to cook easier. If you’ve tried other ways to learn Italian cooking and haven’t had the results you wanted, we can help.
  • Cooking for friends: Cooking for friends, family or a significant other is a lot more fun when you feel confident that what you’re making will be delicious. Through a short and simple cooking class with us, you can add a new restaurant-quality dish to your repertoire.
  • Health and nutrition: Making pizza, pasta and other Italian dishes from scratch is a healthier way to eat than buying the frozen or boxed versions of those foods at the grocery store—and much more delicious, too!

Tips for Getting More Value out of Your Italian Cooking Classes

If you are thinking about signing up for one of our cooking classes in Brisbane or Sydney, consider these tips to get even more out of the experience.

  • Bring your friends: As mentioned above, we love for our courses to be social experiences for guests. A cooking class can be a great way to meet people who share your interests, but it can also be an awesome way to spend a morning or afternoon with a close friend. We can also do corporate cooking classes if you’re looking for a fun staff outing.
  • Check out all the courses we offer: Chances are that, if you enjoy one of our classes, you’ll enjoy others as well. So, if you had a good time at a pasta-making class in Sydney, perhaps consider looking into our pizza making or cocktail making classes in Sydney, too. You might also consider taking two courses on the same day, to create an even more immersive Italian cooking experience.
  • Dress appropriately: You don’t need to worry about bringing anything to your cooking class. We take care of all the ingredients and utensils you will need. However, we do ask all guests to wear close-toed shoes and comfortable clothing, for their own safety and enjoyment.
