Gourmet Aussie Barbecue Cooking Class

Exciting yet effortless dishes for the BBQ

About – Gourmet Aussie Barbecue Cooking Class

Learn how to prepare a selection of exciting but effortless dishes to cook on the BBQ. No previous barbecuing experience is necessary, as barbecue guru Paul Rast (as seen on SBS Food Safari) will walk you through the basics.

You’ll then dine alfresco in a beautiful Australian bush setting, enjoying the meal you’ve helped create with matching wines. A great class for overseas visitors or those wanting some new ideas for the grill.

Sample Menu:

  • Grilled Haloumi with a Lime and Caper Dressing
  • Smoked Chicken Two Ways: Lemon Myrtle Infused & Berbere Spiced
  • Marinated Butterflied Leg of Lamb with a Warm Tomato Salsa
  • Grilled Herb & Garlic Corn on the Cob
  • Barbecued Kumara with Lemon and Chilli Oil

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. See us on Channel 7’s Great South East to get a taste of our classes.

Our cooking school is set on the edge of beautiful Noosa National Park, and 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.
