What we're about

We're a group of keen foodies dedicated to celebrating everything culinary, whether through cooking classes, group dinners around town, or themed events relating food to art, literature or history. Your organiser is a French lecturer turned chef so some events have a French flair. Check out other Savour experiences here: www.savour.org.nz

We run cooking classes through CRAVE COOKING SCHOOL www.cravecookingschool.co.nz. (http://www.cravecookingschool.co.nz)

Our classes range from Middle Eastern vegetarian, fermenting, cooking with the Impressionists (an art history/hands on cooking class with a French twist!), fermenting and MORE!

In this workshop, we’ll explore Van Gogh’s life in Paris, Arles and Auvers. We’ll make two dishes Van Gogh ate while living at the Auberge Ravoux at the end of his life. We’ll make a roast, stuffed, rolled lamb dish as a main, an easy but impressive dish that looks great on the plate. And for dessert, chocolate rum truffles.
