The Village Cooks
Dedicated to sharing the art of good food.
About the cooking studio.
Growing up in an Italian family has certainly provided Angela with an appreciation for seasonal, fresh and simple food. A trained pastry chef, cook, recipe writer, food blogger & teacher; Angela set up her teaching studio to share the love of good food inspired by her Italian hertiage. She also teaches Italian Pasta Classes at Cornersmith Cooking School, Marrickville.
Located Sylvania in the Sutherland Shire; just 25kms south of Sydney, Angela brings all her knowledge, skills, and passion to her classes and workshops, and in addition, shares this space with her many talented family and friends; both chefs & cooks, who too, share their love for the art of good food!
Classes and workshops vary from baking, to pastry making, handmade pasta, preserving, seasonal Italian home-style cooking, and much more!
Classes are designed to be small (between 4-8 people) allowing for a more personalised experience. All classes are interactive and hands-on, where we eat the food we make.
The kitchen is kitted out with the latest equipment to assist in the smooth running of classes; with two Miele wall ovens, and one large freestanding Ilve electric oven with a gas stovetop.
Costs per class vary depending on the class. View upcoming classes
