Lunch with Cook-off for larger groups is a programme suitable for groups over 40 guests. These are held in the commercial kitchen (as opposed to Ruth and Paul's homestead kitchen). Great for workplace bonding, these classes are interactive and competitive.

This price includes exclusive use of the Springfield house and garden, a set of recipes and a signed cookbook for guests to take home.  Prices excludes wine. Please see the wine list here.
