Seasonal Te Pahi Cooking Classes

Welcome to the Cuisine Concepts Te Pahi Cooking classes

My Tauranga cooking classes have a strong focus, especially in the warmer summer months, on wood fired, outdoor cookery around a purpose built wood fired oven and wood fired barbecue.
Te Pahi classes also feature a seasonal focus on ingredients and creating classes around what’s in the extensive Te Pahi Gardens and Orchards.

Recipes are supplied, the food is created and eaten on site. Each class is approximately 4 hours.

Examples of classes offered at Te Pahi:

Alfresco Summer:
what’s in the garden, quick easy salads, dressings and mayonnaise, skin on fish
Cooking with Wood:
Tips and tricks, wood roasted protein, vegetables and condiments
sauerkraut, vinegar, preserved limes, fermented vegetables
Soup & Stock :
seasonal soups, purees and broths, stock

The bus, The place. For me the place.The place i was born, the place i grew up. The place i watched my mother cook wonderful meals. The place my father gardened and grew wonderful food for mum to cook. The place we ran, chased played and had the freedom to be kids.The place we caught eels in the creek. The place mum patched us up, cleaned us, fed us and looked after us.

To have a dream and  then walk the steps to create it is a wonderful thing. My dream has been to have a place called Te Pahi. A place where i can grow and cook and share wonderful food with people. The place where i can show people that to eat well is a simple thing, that  it does not have to take hours or cost a fortune. The dream is alive… The dream is here. I feel so blessed and fortunate to have found it, created something i truly love doing.
