It was a great experience. Enjoyed immensely. The preparing a cooking was very simple to follow. The people involved were friendly and made the whole experience perfect. The food was fantastic. The idea of helping with the cooking and then being able to eat the food was great.

Having experienced this wonderful cooking school a few years ago, we retuned to do the French cooking class - and we were not disappointed. Terri is a welcoming and gracious hostess and a fabulous chef. She imparts her comprehensive knowledge of cooking in a fun and inclusive way. The dishes were delectable enough to lick the plate! Lunch was served... More

The experience was absolutely enjoyable. The place was warm and inviting. The view, the gardens, the house and kitchen was amazing. There was a lovely morning tea waiting for us when we arrived. We were then invited into the kitchen to cook. The menu chosen was Italian using local produce from the mountain. We were given recipes of everything we... More

We absolutely loved our experience with Terri at Tamborine Cooking School this week! The menu was delicious, using local produce from the mountain we learnt to put together an elegant range of delicious meals. The handy hints that Terri passes on throughout the class were my favourite take away - from hints on cooking the sweet potatoes, garlic and beetroot... More

It is easy to forget simple techniques in the kitchen from selecting fresh vegetables to plating food. Terri coaches and guides all participants in the kitchen to make great food - today I learnt how to make 'souffle' - all these years I have heard this is the most temperamental dish to make - Terri and guests proved this to...

Thank you, Terri for a delicious, enjoyable and successful Australia's Biggest Morning Tea. We were fortunate to be invited to this novel, well organised event at Tamborine Cooking School. Everyone joined in to prepare an amazing High Tea for the 30+ guests. The rooms were full of chatter, laughter and the smell of tempting savouries and sweet treats. Hot scones... More

Im sorry to say I found the italian cooking class to be very disappointing. Chicken cacciatore and tirramissu I can honestly say were quite boring. The school is very professional and well set up in a lovely venue but really didnt learn anything new or clever as far as cooking is concerned - my mother taught me chicken cacciatore with... More

A great way to catch up with friends, meet people & learn new things . Terri created a relaxed friendly atmosphere whilst guiding us through the creation of an Asian influenced lunch, all the while promoting advantages of local produce & outlets. Topped off by wonderful views while eating meal at the end.

I visited Terri's Cooking School recently with a group of Travel Industry colleague's. There was a variety of nationalities represented, but Terri managed to keep it interesting for everyone. The food we produced (with a LOT of help!) was lovely!

Highly recommend visiting Tamborine cooking school. Terri showed us lots of techniques and interesting ingredients and we topped it all off with lunch on the balcony to finish. Great day out.
