Join us for a weekend cooking residential classes at BellView Hill B&B in the BellView Hill commercial kitchen. Everyone will have ample opportunity to share in the preparation of the food. Classes are designed to teach basic cooking skills and their application, with some more advanced techniques for more experienced cooks. We will use the best fresh seasonal produce with an emphasis on what is available locally. The weekend will include a trip to a farmers' market at Coal Creek, Korumburra to buy local produce and conclude on Sunday morning after breakfast.
BellView Hill B&B is a new contemporary self-contained cottage and homestead. All of our facilities have been designed to have a minimal impact on our environment by using the latest environmental technology.
We have incorporated solar orientation, thermal mass, double-glazing and wide verandahs which will keep the house cool in summer and warm in winter. Heat pumps provide ample hot water from the atmosphere, a state of art sewerage treatment plant and rain water tanks complete the facilities.
The homestead is oriented to capture the breathtaking views. The lounge and dining room with open fires and air conditioning are available for our guests exclusive use. We have 2 guest suites, Wattle and Blue gum. It has been designed to provide access to guests with restricted mobility.
Learn about the importance of mise en place, or planning, and good food handling practices, so your next family dinner or party with friends can be an enjoyable stress-free occasion. The classes will commence on Friday evening with a light dinner served on arrival. The hands-on classes are limited to a maximum of four participants.
Using seasonal produce ensures we are eating food at its best, full of colour and flavour. It gives us something to look forward to with the changing seasons.Each class will prepare a light lunch and a 3 course evening meal to enjoy together. All equipment is provided including pens and aprons. Some of the recipes and techniques we will use are: Pastry, short, choux and filo; Souffls; Breaking down poultry; Making pasta; Using gelatin; Cooking using a bain-marie.
