If your weekly cooking schedule is on a three-meal rotation (guilty), allow us to introduce the concept of cooking classes, which will both broaden your skillset and allow you to impress your significant other (or dog, no judgment).
From pizza to cupcakes, here are three Gold Coast classes you should book into right now, so you never need to eat meat and three veg again.
Salt Meats Cheese
The people at Salt Meats Cheese know what’s up when it comes to pizza and pasta and (hooray) they’re willing to share their knowledge with you! There are an array of classes to choose from including a Pizza Masterclass, The Italian Vegan Masterclass and a Pasta Masterclass involves step-by-step learning on how to create fresh pasta from scratch so you can blow the minds of all your pals. Tickets include the class, pizza and a glass of wine or beer. Sounds good to us!
Where: The 4218, Beach Road, Surfers Paradise
Icon the Cookery School
Cooking classes for everyone. Choose your own adventure at Icon the Cookery School. From classes specialising in international cuisine, to seafood, cocktails, beer and wine and sweet treats, you can learn to cook almost anything. Cupcake baking and decorating? Yes please. How about soft cheese making? So many sweet classes to try, you’ll be cooking for the rest of time. Classes change monthly and there’s even specific nights for couples if you’re keen.

Another opportunity to make delicious, delicious pizza from the absolute masters. Double Zero, in Broadbeach, run a masterclass on the first and third Saturday of every month. In three hours, head pizza chef Nicola will share all the secrets behind the true Pizza Napoletana and will teach you how to make the absolute perfect pizza and it’s only $79 per person. Once you’re done, you’re invited to sit ‘Italian Style’ and eat your creation. Course notes and a glass of Italian wine to compliment your pizza are also included. Belissimo.
