Unique and creative cooking classes in Melbourne

I love food. I love eating food, cooking food, presenting food, researching food trends, and teaching people how to cook food. My relationship with food started at a tender age when I spent hours watching my Mamma and Nonna cooking.
My passion grew, and it was natural that I became a chef when it was time to choose a career. I’ve cooked for hundreds of people over the years as a personal chef and at restaurants. I’m familiar with the catering and entertainment industry, and I’m well-placed to guide people through the process of finding and hiring a personal chef for a special occasion.

Introducing my unique brand of cooking classes in Melbourne was the logical next step in my culinary journey. If you have always wanted to increase your food repertoire, consider booking cooking classes, including pasta-making, one of my most popular classes. If you have special dietary requirements, I even offer special gluten-free pasta-making classes. For tantalising, gluten-free food in Melbourne or classes on preparing gluten-free fare, I’m the chef you need.

Our personal chef service is a cut above the rest

For an unusual way to commemorate a special anniversary, birthday, or another milestone event, why not celebrate with friends and family in the comfort of your own home. As a host, you can relax and enjoy the party as much as your guests while I care for everything.

I will require information like your address (I work within a 30km-radius of Melbourne), the date and time of the event, the number of guests, and any special preferences so that I can submit a quote. The process is simple and completed in a few clicks.

You can scroll through dish options for ideas, but I am also happy to design a menu especially for your event.

Once we decide on a menu and confirm your booking, I visit the fresh markets in-person to select the best and freshest ingredients.
