Private Group Classes

Our kitchen and grounds provide the perfect space for private group and team building classes… but please don’t expect community class prices.

We love hosting private groups and team building events! Located in the heart of Bowral (1.5hrs from Sydney, 2hrs from Canberra) our unique kitchen, outdoor space and professional staff make the perfect recipe for a fun group activity.

Our private group and team building classes offer fun, interactive learning and cooking experiences which are tailored to group needs. We offer a range of formats for varying budgets, tailor class menus to group interests and provide opportunity for groups to come together to eat their efforts, enjoy a drink and connect over food.

Sound like a delicious day out? It is, but we can’t afford to deliver at community class prices. Minimum spend applies, a portion of which is tax deductible, plus proceeds raised directly support Your Angel community programs!

Please see our packages below and if you’re not deterred by budget, we’d love to help with your enquiry.

Private class costs, and associated tax deductions, are determined by package preference, menu theme, group numbers and presenter availability.

We had a fantastic end of year celebratory cooking class with Lisa & Norma and loved our time at The Cook’s Cooking School, it was the highlight of our trip to the Southern Highlands!
It was great getting in the kitchen & working together as a team to prepare our lunch and have fun together – we will definitely be back!

Kristen, Elite Plumbing Services

We visited the Cook’s Cooking School for our staff weekend away and did a Mexican Street Food cooking class. It was really wonderful to find an activity that suited the range of ages, skills and personalities in our group. We have never had as much success getting everyone involved, and enjoying themselves. This was the perfect activity for a weekend away with colleagues and many of our staff said, “they can’t wait to bring their friends back to try another class”. We cannot recommend it highly enough!

Frequently asked questions

Our community classes are priced to ensure affordability and accessibility for all. They are a community service provided at the expense of Your Angel charity for the purpose of providing opportunity for local community to unite, meet new people, enjoy our facilities, learn new recipes, make and take meals home to share with loved ones. To deliver private classes we must ensure a profit to justify diverting resources away from our community obligations. Proceeds raised from private classes are attributed to Your Angel community programs.

Planning, preparing, hosting (& cleaning up after) cooking classes incurs significant time and expense. As a charity our primary obligation is to service local community needs. A minimum spend is required to ensure we deliver profit to the charity and justify diverting resources away from community obligations. Proceeds raised from private classes are then attributed to Your Angel community programs.

Due to our charity DGR1 status a portion of our private classes can be claimed as a tax deduction. We will confirm the tax deductible amount on your final estimate, invoice and tax deductible receipt.

All packages include a private customised class, access to our fully equipped kitchen complete with a warm & welcoming atmosphere, expert guidance by qualified presenters, class menu recipes, ingredients, non-alcoholic beverages and sit down meal at a shared table to come together, relax and enjoy food prepared during class.

We are not licensed so cannot include or serve alcohol however, BYO alcohol is welcome.

We are happy for private groups to enjoy a glass during class if they are inclined. Alcohol is BYO only and we encourage responsible drinking while in the kitchen.

We will work with you to tailor a private class theme and menu that will best suit your interests and budget.

Private classes dates & times are dependent on both kitchen and presenter availability. We will do our best to accommodate as near to your needs as we can.

We are a NSW registered COVID Safe business and can host private classes in accordance with social distancing and public health and safety measures. There will be a screening process and numbers will be limited, however we will work with you to manage your needs within our COVID safety plan.
