Italian food is certainly one of Australia’s main culinary influences – we have a pizza shop on every corner, and a packet of pasta in every cupboard. But many of us would love to experience beyond those tasty staples, to gain greater insight into the tradition of Italian cooking – full of fresh, simple and seriously mouth-watering recipes. Inspired by a recent trip to regional Italy, the instructor will pass on secrets to the real Italian deal, showcasing their philosophy towards food for a truly holistic experience.

Set in gorgeous Noosa, students will arrive to enjoy a muffin straight from the oven, coupled with a café style coffee or tea on the veranda of this stunning property – overlooking Noosa National Park and their own tropical gardens. Participants will then make their way to the kitchen where they will engage in a hands-on, interactive experience, designed to be fun and relaxed with only a maximum of 10 people per class.

Participants will learn the likes of crostini multiple ways; salsa verde topped eggs; porcini risotto covered in truffle oil; pork fillet wrapped in prosciutto; cherry tomatoes with sautéed radicchio; Tuscan favourite, panzanella salad; crostata with strawberry jam; and freshly brewed coffee and lemoncello! All made from the freshest local ingredients. Delizioso!

To top off the Italian Long Lunch Cooking Class, students will then have the opportunity to sit down over a leisurely lunch and enjoy all their hard work - complete with generous servings of all their creations, including the lemoncello, of course! They will enjoy in true Italian style, surrounded by people, feasting on gorgeous food and chatting away. Students will be able to take home a folder full of step by step instructions to ensure they can recreate this gorgeous Italian lunch and home, time and time again.

This experience is a wonderful gift idea for the local Noosa person who would love experience something different in their own backyard, or equally as wonderful for someone visiting the Sunshine Coast to make their holiday even better. All of our experience vouchers are available for 12 months from purchase, so no worries if the holiday isn’t just yet! All instructions including how to make all arrangements directly through the experience provider will be available in your inbox immediately after purchase.

The Culinary Experiences of Everything but Flowers!

Instead of buying average birthday presents, why not delight your recipient with a nice culinary experience. If your recipient is fond of cooking, then your recipient will love to receive one of our culinary activities instead of physical birthday presents. Curious to find what alternatives to standard birthday presents we can offer you? Read our overview of culinary experiences below!

Italian Long Lunch Class in Queensland

The first alternative to standard birthday presents is an experience that takes place in Queensland – the Italian Long Lunch Class. During this experience, your recipient will learn all the secrets of the Italian cuisine, so your recipient will learn more than how to cook a pizza or pasta!

One of the Italian Long Lunch Classes could be your alternative to standard birthday presents, especially if your recipient has an interest in cooking or wants to become a chef. Of course, this experience is also suitable for recipients who are hobby chefs!

VIVE Cooking School Voucher in Sydney

Certain culinary experiences are not suitable for birthdays alone, because some culinary experiences could be an excellent Christmas present too. One of the experiences that makes the perfect Christmas present is the VIVE Cooking School Voucher, because this experience offers numerous cooking activities the recipient can choose from.

Cooking classes are possible throughout the year; this is certainly clear when your recipient uses this Christmas present. The recipient can benefit from numerous cooking classes, which are adjusted to the season the cooking class takes place in.

Farmers Market Cooking Tour in Queensland

Another great Christmas present is an experience where you can pick out fresh ingredients and create something amazing later; this is one of the reasons why we recommend the Farmers Market Cooking Tour in Queensland as a Christmas present!

During the Farmers Market Cooking Tour, the recipient gets the opportunity to familiar with the ingredients available at Noosa Farmers Market. Once ingredients are chosen and everything has been explored, the recipient returns to a professional kitchen to make some amazing dishes from the chosen ingredients. Since the recipient will create more than 6 mouth-watering dishes and can try them all, the experience is suitable for gourmet lovers as well as aspiring chefs!

Aussie BBQ Cooking Class in Queensland

A barbecue cooking class is never a bad idea, because nobody can create outstanding barbecue like Aussies! However, if your recipient is not familiar with BBQ yet, then they could benefit from learning some BBQ skills.

During the Aussie BBQ Cooking Class, your recipient is going to learn some classic Aussie BBQ dishes. Beginners will learn a tremendous amount, but even experienced BBQ lovers can get some valuable information during one of these classes.

After creating 7 mouth-watering dishes, the recipient also gets to try his creations. The recipient will also receive two glasses of matching wine; this makes the entire experience complete!

Vietnamese Cooking Class in Melbourne

A Vietnamese Cooking Class might not be the first cooking class you consider for your recipient, but we can guarantee that this class will be something your recipient will never forget. If you want to step away from some of the most popular cuisines such as French and Italian, this cooking class is ideal for your recipient.

The dishes that will be cooked during the Vietnamese Cooking Class will depend on the season. If your recipient prefers classic Vietnamese dishes, your recipient should choose to attend the cooking class between May and August. However, if your recipient wants to learn how to create Vietnamese street foods and truly taste the culture of Vietnam, your recipients should attend the classes between January and April. More choices are available too, so your recipient will always have something that matches their preferences.

Cronuts and Donuts Class

Some may believe that cooking a nice donut or cronut is simple, but it is a true art. If your recipient wants to learn this art, you could gift them the Cronuts and Donuts Class Experience. The class includes an entire day of instruction, but also a complimentary apron and recipe book!

The Cronuts and Donuts Class is given by a professional & passionate instructor. It is a good class for beginners, but also for those who want to sharpen their donut and cronut making skills. The experience is also valid for twelve months, so your recipient can attend the class when they prefer!

Japanese Cooking Class

If your recipient is a big fan of Japanese cooking, you could consider gifting them a Japanese Cooking Class. With a Japanese Cooking Class, your recipient can learn how to create the finest Japanese dishes, so they don’t have to get a take-away to try this amazing cuisine. The Japanese Cooking Class is a gift suitable for recipients of all ages, although the recipient needs to be at least 16 years old to attend the class.

Macarons Class

Macarons are the preferred treat of many Australians, so the Macarons Class is quite a popular experience at Everything but Flowers. The Macaron Class is an experience that stretches over 6 hours, enabling the recipient to create Macarons like a true master pastry chef!

While the Macarons Class is a suitable experience for many Australians, we do need to warn customers that this experience is not suitable for recipients under the age of 16. It is also not suitable for recipients with certain food allergies. If you are unsure if your recipient meets the requirements, simply grab one of our money vouchers instead. By doing this, your recipient can choose the experience himself or herself.

Other Culinary Experiences for Your Recipient

The culinary experiences mentioned above are just some of the options available at Everything but Flowers. Since we have many culinary experiences that could delight your recipient, we urge customers to discover the entire range of experiences before making their choice.
