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. http://www.wendynolanjoyce.com

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!

Crave Cooking School


A hands-on Middle Eastern vegetarian cooking class that celebrates delicious recipes from Israeli-British Chef Yotam Ottolenghi’s new cookbook SIMPLE. During the class you will make a selection of vegetarian dishes to create a Middle Eastern feast of at least 10 dishes (dips, flat breads, raw and cooked vegetable dishes, a rice pilaf, and a sweet). When you've finished cooking we will all sit down for a relaxed lunch together, accompanied with a glass of fine NZ vino!

Cooking with MONET

Crave Cooking School


If you love French impressionist painting and cooking, join our class on Claude Monet! NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Recreate dishes straight from the recipe collections of the French Impressionist painters and, while you cook, learn more about their life and works. Price includes short visual presentation, glass of wine, all ingredients and recipes. You’ll explore French Impressionism, and celebrate the good life so joyously captured by the Impressionists, with hands-on cooking classes led by professional chef and art historian, Dr. Wendy Nolan Joyce. Join one workshop or all four over the course of the year—once you’ve done one, you’ll be sure to want to do more! This year’s series includes all-new material and new artists after previous years’ sell-out workshops. NOTE: There is a fee to pay through www.savour.org.nz
