Creative Workshops

At Willow Vale Cooking School we plan our calendar around the garden and tailor our classes based on what vegetables are in season, reinforcing our beliefs around living a more sustainable lifestyle.

Willow Vale Cooking School is available for private hire for small groups.
Whether you have been tasked with the important job of organising a party or just looking for a unique experience with friends we can tailor classes to your needs!

Bruno & Catherine Loubet

Bruno and Catherine recently returned from the busy London restaurant scene to sunny Queensland again seeking out that all important slower pace. They fell in love with an old Queenslander set on 8 ½ acres and decided to create a boutique cooking school.

Homegrown Cooking

We want Willow Vale Cooking School to reflect the growing movement towards a more sustainable lifestyle, respecting what we eat and showcasing the provenance and production techniques.
