Learn to Cook Like a Master Chef

IT'S one thing to enjoy a delicious meal, but imagine being able to create your very own culinary masterpieces.

Budding chefs can learn some of Spicers Clovelly Estate's culinary secrets in a series of cooking classes hosted by talented chef Cameron Matthews in the coming months.

Cameron, head chef of the Sunshine Coast hinterland estate's The Long Apron restaurant, will show you how to prepare wonderful French and Italian style dishes two Saturdays a month from 10am to 3pm.

Cooking lessons cost $165 each and cater for six to eight guests and include lunch, wine, full recipes, tips pack and a branded apron to take home.

Upcoming lessons will be held on:

* December 4 (Italian); December 18 (French)

* January 8 (French); January 18 (Italian)

* February 12 (French); February 26 (Italian)

Cameron has been Executive Chef de Cuisine at Siggi's Restaurant in Brisbane, Executive Chef of Restaurant Lurleen's at the Sirromet Winery in Mount Cotton and honed his skills overseas before heading The Long Apron.

"Long Apron Cooking School guests will enjoy hands on, intimate and informative sessions based on building basic skills and fostering a love of gourmet food," Cameron said.

Set on nine hectares of lush country land within easy reach of Noosa and Mooloolaba and just 90 minutes from Brisbane, Spicers Clovelly Estate at Montville is one of the Sunshine Coast hinterland's most intimate and refined accommodation experiences.

The estate is part of luxury accommodation brand Spicers Retreats Hotels and Lodges owned by Flight Centre Limited founder and managing director Graham Turner and his wife Jude.
