Details and Contact

Joachim trained in patisserie back in the 90's and has had 14 years industry experience as a pastry chef in  top hotels and restaurants in NZ, Australia and in the UK.  He specialised as a chocolatier and has even cooked for the Queen. He has been a specialist patisserie teacher for the past 8 years here in NZ.

Francesca Eldridge is a Nutritionist and true to her Italian roots, Francesca firmly believes in encouraging people to get in the kitchen, have fun and fall in love with real food. She is a consistent advocate of eating more protein and nourishing fats to nourish our nervous systems and support mental health, and choosing organic and free range foods.

Spaces are limited to spend a day with this dynamic talented duo learning everything from tips on how to start the day, how to avoid the afternoon slump, several main meal options, and desserts with some fancy plating up techniques for those that wish to lift their sweet presentation.

Akaroa, with its own beautiful bays and harbour and French and English history has an enormous range of activities to keep you busy for days. At the Akaroa Cooking School we share recipes, cooking ideas and entertaining secrets for up to sixteen guests per class.

We show how to prepare the dishes on that day’s menu in a relaxed & fun environment. A long lunch at the dining table will then be served savouring every dish from the class with matching NZ wines. All participants need to bring are their culinary interest and an appetite.

“Akaroa Cooking School have been named in LONELY PLANET as one of the top 10 places to learn to cook local cuisine in the WORLD!!! We are right up there with Tuscany & Chiang Mai (where the inspiration came to open our school!) – Stoked!”
