About the 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.
Bruno will cook and decipher the recipes giving lots of advices, details and “tricks of the trade” making it as clear and enjoyable as possible.
You will have the opportunity to get involved in helping Bruno or stand back, watch and enjoy if you prefer during the 2 and ½ hours workshop.
This will be followed by a 3 courses lunch.
We provide homemade Kombucha, chilled infusions, filtered rainwater and tea/coffee, and you are more than welcome to bring any additional drinks.
Workshops run from 9.30am until 3pm
Please read our Terms and Conditions before booking.

Most people, who have experienced good “old school” French food will have been struck by the honest depths of flavours, followed by a soothed, comforting feeling.
We could call it the ultimate comfort food, but don’t be fooled…this is sophisticated cooking.

The complexity of Vietnamese cooking is legendary but for us the “clean balanced” flavours are just mesmerising.
The minimal use of dairy, the abundance of fresh herbs make it a healthy cuisine. In this course we will cook three iconic savoury dishes and a sweet one.

Colourful, fragrant, often slow cooked to blend a myriad of flavours, Moroccan cuisine has been influenced by many other cultures. The complex flavours in some dishes, transcending the use of spices are so exciting and of course so delicious. Perfect cuisine for Queensland weather!
