If two-minute noodles are the extent of your cooking skills then you’re in luck! We’ve sauced (sorry we couldn’t help ourselves) the best cooking classes in Brisbane so you can go from kitchen disaster to culinary master.


Cooking classes aren’t just for the adults! Come and Cook hold small, hands-on classes to help the young ones gain some independence in the kitchen – and who knows, they could turn out to be the next Jamie Oliver or Nigella Lawson. With sought-after, small class sizes, hosted by the highly experienced food educator and classroom teacher, Karen Browne, children learn how to safely use culinary tools to whip up delicious recipes from scratch. If you want your kids to help with weekly dinners, Come and Cook hosts an after-school term of classes called Dinner Club. There are different themes and menus each week, encouraging the kids to try different foods. The best part? The kids go home with their own dinner sorted for the night! Plus, if you are looking for unique birthday and school holiday activities, Come and Cook has got you covered. With the popular cooking class birthday parties, chefs can cook their own party food and have loads of fun while learning a few new culinary skills! School holiday menus change each for each holidays, often follow food trends and can cater to your chefs from the beginner to the advanced.
