Madame Lu’s offers interactive cooking classes in a variety of food styles.
Classes are run from an old, but rather beautiful Villa around Wakefield Quay in a polished residential kitchen. White subway tiles, stone and stainless steel combined with matai flooring create a refined and warm atmosphere.
The classes are for anyone and everyone. From home cooks to foodies and those whom have never set foot in a kitchen. We are not a culinary school for professional chefs. Rather, we are a place for guests to reacquaint themselves with the pleasures of eating and entertaining. Classes are recreational in a sense that we want the kitchen to become a place that is fun, full of enjoyment and well and truly free of fear. We use the classes as a platform to educate, as well as remind our guests how wonderful it is to prepare a meal from scratch and enjoy it in the company of others.
The classes run for three hours and are a mix of both interactive and observational cooking, followed by a seated, shared style meal at the long gathering table.
Guests will learn four recipes over the course of three hours, an entrée and three mains using the most seasonal produce straight from the market gardens of Nelson.
It is our mission and of the utmost importance to us, the team at Madame Lu’s, that guests will view the class as an experience and not just your everyday restaurant style meal.
Our business is dedicated to the preparation of quality seasonal produce and our classes provide the platform for guests to learn all about the culinary delights that can be easily conjured up in your own home kitchen. We strive to make all classes relaxed, sociable and enjoyable for all those that attend.
