Culinaire Cooking School
a cooking school in beautiful swan reach, victoria
Culinaire Cooking School first opened its doors in 2003 with Chef Christiane Philip at the helm together with her husband John.
After many years of honing her skill both in Europe and Australia. Christiane recognised a need for a cooking school with a hands on approach that taught students the fundamentals of cookery, rather than attending demonstration classes. A herb and kitchen garden was then planted out to supply the school with fresh produce for the classes and workshops. and offers a personal approach with only 8 students per class or workshop ensures maximum learning. The cooking school has grown to the well known inspirational and exiting experience it is today... a first class establishment now also housing a gift shop and conducting gourmet food tours.
Come for a herb garden ramble – its free with so many different herbs plants, perhaps we can inspire you to plant your own garden or maybe just a big pot of fresh herbs. We enjoy the seasonal produce our garden supplies and are happy to share our knowledge with you. Herbs and fresh vegetables from the garden are far superior than two day old commercial produce and it only takes a small space to grow and not much effort once you have the know how. Come for a wander. With so many chain stores offering the same merchandise, looking for that something special is becoming increasingly harder.
At our Culinaire Gift Shop we have sourced great gifts and home wares from Australian, Swedish, French, Belgium, and Italian designers. You will be pleasantly surprised by the value for money we offer.If you are looking for something small to give, perhaps one of our many preserves will suit, grown right here in our garden and hand made in our kitchen. without preservative. Yes, of course, we have gift voucher available for classes and gift shop.
