My good friend, Gillian & I are returning to the kitchen to embrace the glorious seasonal produce of Spring! Join us for a day of gathering, cooking, baking & sharing in a 3 course ltalian inspired lunch.

Gillian Bell is a cake-maker, private cook and podcaster who travels the world with her whisk. A self-taught cook, she encourages everyone to enjoy cooking with her enthusiasm and ability to create dishes from local, seasonal produce rather than follow recipes.

Angela Palermo, founder & teacher of The Village Cooks, trained as a pastry chef and has worked for the likes of Rachel Grisewood, Lorraine Godsmark, and Andy Bunn. Her cooking is heavily influenced by her Italian heritage and growing up in a family that grew its own food and created dishes from their own produce. Angela shares her love of simple, home-style cooking with students at her cooking school The Village Cooks & teaches Pasta Classes at Cornersmith, Sydney.
