Five Star Local Cuisine Cooking Class


Select Option


Adding a cooking class to your New Zealand holiday is a tasty way to create amazing memories. You'll get hands-on experience with Pacific Rim cuisine.

Every part of New Zealand has its own unique food and wine specialties. Different types of fish and shellfish, specific fruit and vegetables that thrive in their local climate, cheeses from artisan producers, and climate-matched grape varieties.

The best way to get acquainted with these local specialties and people is to book a cooking class and tie on an apron for yourself.

Svend used to be the head chef of a five-star cruise ship kitchen and was a lecturer at a prestigious cooking school. He knows the history, legends, oceans and wildlife of Dunedin. He is keen to share his knowledge of New Zealand cuisine and culture with every guest.
