The Homeland Cooking School
Learn to cook in our state of the art space
Learn recipes to share with whānau and friends

Cooking and eating together is one of life’s great joys and Peter loves sharing his ideas and skills with people who enjoy being in the kitchen.

Our Fisher & Paykel culinary school has all the latest induction cooktops and fantastic ovens, perfect for learning to roast or bake in our classes which have a focus on everyday food (but always with that Peter Gordon twist). Love roasts but sick of the same old same old? Peter will show you how to make sides that take an ordinary meal to something your guests will talk about for years.

Recipes feature hero producers from Aotearoa and the Pacific, flavours erupt from the best kai, methods from Peter’s lifetime of cooking are distilled into easy everyday recipes. These classes aren’t for Master Chefs, they’re for people who love to cook, or people who love the idea of cooking but need a little confidence. You’ll walk away from a Homeland class excited about having your friends over to eat at your place, as soon as possible.

Homeland lessons are not just for adults.  Weekends are all about whānau and friends. Bring flatmates, parents, grandies, kids and cook great meals from scratch together. Our F&P cooking stations can be shared by up to five guests at a time. Amazing Kaimoana – roast anything with awesome trimmings and baking too good to keep in the tin.

We can’t wait to welcome you into our state-of-the-art space.
