The expert
The peninsula-based vineyard and olive grove, Green Olive at Red Hill, offers the perfect setting for food and wine experiences. Knowledgable chefs guide guests through the kitchen garden and commercial kitchen so that they can learn everything about the production of a meal: from the growing and harvesting of the veggies to the kneading, squeezing and slicing of the cooking process. Green Olive at Red Hill is a three-time winner of the RACV Australian Tourism Awards for Excellence in Food Tourism, and a two-time winner of the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards for Excellence in Food Tourism – so guests are in good hands! 

The plan 
Want to understand the best cuts of meat for your favourite dishes, and gain the confidence and skills to butcher meat at home? This is the ideal class for you! Watch a chef break down a full lamb carcass, explaining the various cuts of lamb and from which part of the animal they came. Then it's chicken deboning time – and this you do yourself, under instruction: breaking the chicken into various cuts before marinating it with herbs from the kitchen garden.

The fruits of your labour 
Once the hard work is done, you'll sit down, admire the view of the vineyard, kitchen garden and ducks on the dam, while enjoying lunch served with a glass of Green Olive Estate wine.

The kit required
Please bring a cooler bag to take fresh produce home safely.
