Most weekends from February to December, the Ruth Pretty Cooking School shares recipes, cooking ideas and entertaining secrets for 40 participants amid the rural tranquility of Te Horo. 

Guest presenters - a range of top chefs and food personalities - complement Ruth Prettys own classes. They show participants how to prepare the dishes on that days menu in a relaxed environment, where stories are told and questions answered.

A long lunch on the verandah, under sun umbrellas, or even at the chefs benches, savouring every dish from the class (with matching wines) finishes off the day. Recipes are provided and participants only need bring their culinary interest and an appetite.
 
Preliminary coffee, teas and a tasty little treat is served in the Garden Room from 9.15am, and the class starts at 10am.  Watch and learn as the presenter takes you through each dish step by simple step.  You don't need to bring a thing: take-home recipes are provided and a pen for adding your own notes and all those extra little tips the presenters offer.  A late morning coffee break is also a chance to peruse the treasures of Ruth's Kitchen Shop, and the full menu as demonstrated is served for lunch with matched wines or other drinks about 2pm.  The class generally concludes about 4pm and experienced participants prefer not to plan on a big dinner that night!!
