What we do
life’s a feast offers hands-on Cooking Classes designed to increase your culinary skills and food knowledge, and ignite your passion for food, cooking and entertaining.
Based in beautiful Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, our goal is for you to derive pleasure from food and cooking and create crowd-pleasing cuisine. We are passionate about all things culinary and are committed to you expanding your knowledge whilst having fun in the process.
Our cooking school was established in 2007 and since then we have taught, inspired, entertained and indulged well over a thousand participants.
To complement our cooking classes, we offer small-group Culinary Tours to exciting destinations like India and Vietnam. These tours are carefully planned in association with travel consultants Davids Tours with food, culture and safety in mind, and your tour host Gail Rast will ensure that you get the most out of your gastronomic journey.
In addition we conduct Noosa Farmers’ Market Tours where you will discover this treasure trove of the finest and freshest Sunshine Coast produce.

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.
