Sweet Christmas Cheer

25 November from 10am to 1pm $165 per person

End the year (and dinner) on a sweet note by baking your favourite yuletide treats. At this class you’ll learn how to make mince tarts, mini Christmas puddings, ginger cake with lemon frosting and Christmas cookies. EL readers get $45 off this class by quoting “SCTEL”.

Dips & More

30 November from 10am to 1pm $165 per person

Dips are great for two reasons: they’re easy to make and they keep your guests occupied if you need extra time in the kitchen! On the menu are appetising starters like roasted red pepper dip, Tex-Mex grilled bean dip with corn chips and smoked salmon spread with ciabatta crostini. EL readers get $45 off this class by quoting “DAMEL”.
