The Homeland Cooking School
Learn to cook in our state of the art space
Homeland Cooking School

Cooking and eating together are some of life’s greatest joys and our Cooking School is one of the best places to do both.

Our Fisher & Paykel state-of-the art space has all the latest induction cooktops and fantastic ovens, perfect for learning and kind of cuisine – from Peter’s Masterclasses on Kaimona to our pastry chef, Louise’s baking, to guest tutor classes on everything from Singaporean Street food to Kiwi Italiano to Jewish food to Ceviche and Maragaritas. Food from every Homeland.

Our 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 six guests at a time so bring a group and have some fun. If you’re on your own, or in a pair, you might even get a chance to meet some new fellow cooks. What’s guaranteed, no matter what group, is an afternoon or evening of fun, laughs and great kai.
