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.
We would like to formally acknowledge the input and sponsorship of these companies and the Australian Government who have helped make the building of the Villas possible.
This project is co-funded by the Australian Government under T-QUAL Grants. Thanks to the grant we are able to afford to build a much superior quality and size of accommodation. A massive thank you from us and we look forward to the launch party!
The building team we used are from Rok Solid Construction Pty Ltd and they sponsored us a substantial sum. They have been fantastic, have delivered on time and on budget and have excellent customer service standards. We highly recommend them.
Jag Kitchens kindly sponsored us a substantial discount which enabled us to choose 3 top of the range kitchens for the villas including a demonstration style kitchen in the managers villa where we can cook lunch after our new Gourmet tours. We can’t wait!
The building was designed and project managed by John Adam Architect. John has been inspiration to work with and his creative design has delivered us a superior light filled space for each of the villas.
Electrolux Home Products Pty Ltd have sponsored the entire kitchen fit our including fridges, cook tops, dishwashers, microwaves, ovens, laundry items and even the espresso coffee machines for each villa! We’re thinking of you!
We were also fortunate enough to be awarded a South Australian Tourism grant as part of the Government’s ongoing investment through the South Australian Tourism Commission’s (SATC) Tourism Development Fund. This was a direct contribution to the cost of making the villas a sustainable, energy saving build including adding solar energy, underfloor evacuated tube heating and double glazing. Cosy in winter and cool in summer!
For all the support and investment..we thank you and we look forward to opening the doors to this quality accommodation in March 2013.

Fabulous Middle Eastern Cooking class with Genevieve Harris. Wonderful day cooking a delicious menu of Hummus and flat bread, Chermoula chicken, Harissa marinated Prawns,with a beautiful eggplant and tomato salad, and bbq lamb skewers marinated in Hilbeh served with baby spinach, pomegranate seeds and yoghurt sauce.

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.
