Where: Flinders, Mornington Peninsula
If you're planning on hosting a long lunch or dinner party at your place this summer, this one's for you. Our hands-on Summer Entertaining class will give you the confidence to put on a show in your own home.
Over the course of the day, our Head Chef will teach you simple and clever techniques to turn fresh summer produce into flavour-packed dishes that are sure to impress. With cold entrees, easy and delicious mains and a refreshing dessert, you'll have the entire menu sorted.
While the focus is on techniques for easy dining, timing is everything, so we'll also share our tips on planning and starting your preparations early along the way.
The fruits of your labour
Not only will you take away some super handy tips and tricks, but you'll get to enjoy two courses alongside supplied beverages. Additional courses or food may be prepared, but no additional charges will be incurred for this. You are welcome to purchase additional drinks throughout the day and all recipes will be provided in a pack to take home.

A can-do attitude and your trusty tastebuds!
