Description

Discover the best of this vibrant, colourful and varied cuisine in this class inspired by our recent travels to Spain. You’ll learn to make a scrumptious selection of tapas and pintxos, a variety of regional dishes and the famous Santiago Tart. In true Spanish style, you will enjoy the feast of your creation washed down with a glass or two of housemade Sangria in a relaxed and leisurely manner.

Sample Menu:

  • Assorted Tapas and Pintxos

A life’s a feast cooking class is more than just a cooking lesson: in addition to learning to prepare a selection of sumptuous dishes, you will increase your kitchen skills and culinary knowledge AND enjoy the feast of your creation with wine, in a relaxed and fun environment.

Set on the edge of beautiful Noosa National Park, our cooking classes are interactive, hands on and a heap of fun. We limit numbers to 10 participants so everyone is involved, which means you get the chance to prepare and cook all the dishes - you’ll come away knowing you can recreate the dishes at home because you’ve done each and every step.

Once the dishes are prepared, feast on the fruits of your labour with your fellow class mates and enjoy a generous sit down meal, a couple of glasses of wine and some sparkling conversation.

We have been operating for over 10 years and are proud to hold a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2016 and 2017. We are genuinely passionate about food and cooking, and our prime objective is for you to be inspired and to ignite your passion for food whilst having fun in the process.

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.

I recently attended a life’s a feast cooking class and it was a most enjoyable experience. Gail keeps her classes small, formalities to a minimum and uses her own inspirational recipes. There are many opportunities to participate in the preparation of a doable, delicious three course meal. The finale of course is enjoying the mouth-watering food with your fellow participants.

As an anniversary gift for my wife, I arranged a private cooking class for the two of us with life’s a feast. We both have fairly strict dietary requirements, so we wanted to gain some inspiration and learn some simple yet tasty dishes that fall within our guidelines. Gail was able to come up with an amazing menu, which we prepared with her guidance, and then sat down and ate at the conclusion of the lesson. Gail’s sense of humour ensured we had fun while we learnt new cooking techniques. I can definitely recommend life’s a feast to anyone who would like to expand their cooking repertoire.

I loved everything about the cooking class I recently attended at life’s a feast! I picked up some great cooking ideas and tips, the food was delicious, great company and what a gorgeous location. The highlight for me was sitting down to eat the meal I had helped create with my fellow students and enjoying a glass of wine. I will definitely be returning to do another class soon.
