The Village Cooks is a newly renovated, intimate cooking studio located in the Southern burbs of Sydney dedicated to sharing the art of good food.
About the cooking studio.
Located in the Sylvania, just 25kms south of Sydney, The Village Cooks is a cosy space, recently renovated to cater to small intimate cooking classes and workshops.
Our classes are designed to be small (between 4-6 people*) allowing for a more personalised experience. All classes are interactive and hands on, where we eat the food we make.
The latest efficient kitchen equipment has been installed to assist in the smooth running of classes; with two Miele wall ovens, and one large freestanding Ilve electric oven with gas stove top.
Costs per class vary depending on the class.
Inclusive of cost is:
- Morning tea on arrival (baked treats, coffee, tea, drinks).
- All ingredients required for class.
- Use of all equipment.
- Refreshments throughout.
- One-on-one tuition.
- Take away typed-up notes & recipe.
Classes and workshops vary from baking, to pastry making, to handmade pasta, to preserving, to seasonal home-style cooking! All classes and workshops are heavily influenced by Angela’s Italian heritage, and her love of baking.
Regional Italian Workshops in 2018
Commencing in 2018 there will be a series of Italian Regional Workshops, where Angela, along with her Italian family & friends (both cooks & chefs), will deliver authentic recipes from their regions of Italy.
In addition, Angela will be bringing Mercato e Pranzo (Market & Lunch) workshops where the class participants meet at a Growers Market, purchase fresh seasonal ingredients, and return to The Village Cooks to all prepare lunch, and then share in a glorious feast.
*Please note: Classes will not be held if there are fewer than 4 participants, and in this case, your money will be refunded or transferred to another class at your discretion. Classes are non-refundable, however if 48hours (2 full days) notice is given, a credit will be given to attend a future class. Read our full Terms & Conditions.
