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.

You can’t help but be drawn into the fray when you hear someone talk about their lifelong passion. Gail, self-confessed cook-a-holic and founder of life’s a feast, bursts with infectious enthusiasm as she walks you through the planning and preparation of the finest mouth-watering meal I have had in a long time. I left my cooking class totally confident in my ability to effortlessly create a complete culinary experience. I could not recommend this class more highly.

Thank you Gail for such a great class. I loved everything about it .. learning new techniques, hands on preparation, eating fabulous food, and meeting and getting to know some lovely people! You’ve got a great formula there with your classes and your quality kitchenware products that you have to on-sell. Well done!!

Thanks Gail and Paul, a truly enjoyable experience for me as I was a cooking class virgin prior to spending the day at your place. Enjoyed your casual and easy, but very informative instruction and banter. What a great spot you have there for these classes. And encouraging to see you grow a lot of your own produce as well. Don’t know what the groups are usually like but I really enjoyed the diversity of our group on the 9th, and would love to have had more time to chat with some of them at length. Great work and I give you guys 10 out of 5. See you again at another class.
