Philosophy

life’s a feast is passionate about food and cooking, and is of the belief that the ultimate compliment you can pay anyone is to prepare them a meal from the heart. It is our experience that many people associate cooking and entertaining with stress, hard work and very little reward. But it doesn’t have to be that way – we believe that preparing a meal and having guests should be a joy, not a chore. In line with this philosophy, our recipes and menus have been developed with the following in mind:

1. High “wow” factor, low effort

2. Use of seasonal and local ingredients wherever possible

3. Recipes are all designed to be easy to follow and prepare, so you will easily be able to recreate them at home.

16 November 2019 • Italian Long Lunch Cooking Class

This cooking class was everything i look for. The class was small. It was very hands on. It was informal. Started on time and our instructor, Gail, kept it moving along nicely. The food we cooked was very tasty and not hard to do. We ate everything we cooked at lunch with a couple of glasses of wine. I am very confidant that i will be able to recreate the meal for guests. I also learned lots of hints about cooking in general that will make my life easier. I will definitely be going back for other courses.! There is a great variety on offer

16 May 2019 • American Barbecue Cooking Class

This is such a great way to spend a Saturday. We learned how to properly use and take care of the bbq. Paul’s array of bbq’s is inspiring. Gail’s friendly and enthusiastic approach to cooking is infectious. We were all experts by the end. The dishes we prepared were so tasty and easy enough to make me confident I can do this at home! Simple, everyday or easily sourced ingredients brought the dishes to life without me wondering where on earth do I find that? Overall a fun day filled with fun, laughter, good company and great food.
