What a fantastic experience. This was our first cooking class and we’re already planning our next cooking adventure with Sticky Rice. Yukio is an excellent instructor. The menu was well planned. We had a lot of fun and learned so much. Thank you Yukiko and Daniel for all your hard work.
Sticky Rice Villas is neighbours with this iconic Adelaide Hills business, so we suggest you pop in and see them while staying with us.
The Beerenberg story reads like a story book…
“Almost 200 years ago, our ancestors, George and Anna Paech and their young family embarked on a courageous journey from their home in German-speaking Prussia to South Australia, a land they knew little about, on the other side of the world.
They were willing to take the risk because they dreamed of a happy life here, free to farm and build prosperous and healthy lives for themselves and for future generations.
They were fortunate to settle on land in the Adelaide Hills, which offered nutrient rich soil with gentle north-facing slopes, perfect for growing fruit and vegetables.
They worked hard over the years, seeing themselves as stewards of the land, whilst cultivating their craft of food production.
In 1970, our parents, Grant and Carol, made the decision to concentrate on growing strawberries. Grant infused the traditional farming practices that had been handed down to him through the generations and his deep knowledge of the land with new technology and techniques to produce the most spectacular tasting berries. He had inherited a commitment to excellence and spent many decades perfecting the art of strawberry growing, which he then handed down to his son, Robert, who now grows all of our strawberries.
The first batch of strawberry jam in 1971 was the start of Beerenberg as we know it today, a thriving family-owned farm, tourist destination and manufacturer of the best tasting jams, chutneys, sauces and dressings.
Six generations later, we, the Paech family, still 100% own, farm and live on the property, which is now known as The Beerenberg Family Farm. “

One of the standout features of group cooking classes is their inclusivity. Unlike non-hands-on activities that might alienate certain members, cooking classes create a level playing field.
