Wildside Kitchen - Tarraleah
The Wildside Kitchen offer guests a wide range of cooking school classes. From catching and cooking your own trout, to investigating the local bee population, to making your own cheese, our classes give you a unique opportunity to learn cooking skills from our local chefs and cooking tutors.
Booking a class is simple, just get your group together, decide what date you would like to do your course, then call reception on (03) 6289 0111 and we will organise your event for you.
The Tarraleah Estate offers a range of discounted accommodation packages to all our class participants for guests wanting to stay overnight.
As an integral part of the original Lodge building constructed in 1932 during the development of the Hydro Electric Scheme, the Edge Kitchen was converted into a modern restaurant grade kitchen by the current owners in 2002.
The kitchen offers plenty of room to watch the chef demonstrations and space for you to spread out and try it yourself. We encourage all our guests to be “hands on” in the kitchen.
Upstairs in The Edge you'll find one of the most spectacular views of the area. Built to capture the extraordinary views of the clifftop and meticulously designed to stay in keeping with the surround area and using many of the local timbers, the Edge is a beautiful place to spend you weekend cooking retreat.
On occasion our chefs also like to use The Scholars Kitchen. The Scholars offers a little more bench space when you're preparing those really messy things, like bread and pasta, or sausages. The Scholars has several ovens and stove tops that mean that everyone can cook at once and allows you plenty of room around the central chefs bench. The Scholars Kitchen is in the heart of the Scholars building, and is an ideal chefs kitchen for guest use when you're travelling as a group.
After your class you might like to stay on for the night and try out your new skills in the Scholars kitchen.
