Ekka’s Cooking School presented by Spotlight
WHERE: Woolworths Fresh Food Pavilion
For the very first time, Ekka guests will go ‘bake’ to school as they get hands-on at the brand new Cooking School presented by Spotlight in the Woolworths Fresh Food Pavilion.
With 60 free classes over the 10 days of show - each class seating 20 people at their very own cooking station - 1,200 people will learn to ditch the takeaway and cook from scratch, while many others will listen in, getting plenty of kitchen tips and tricks.
The School will be hosted by Chef Daniel (Daniel Abou-Chedid), whose love of food and passion to educate and entertain will inspire foodies on their culinary journey.
Chef Daniel will be joined by a number of top local chefs including Will Cowper from OTTO Ristorante, Javier Codina from Moda Restaurant and Ames Starr from Raw and Peace.
The chefs will teach 45 minute classes such as whipping up perfect pancakes, mastering risotto, making decadent raw desserts and becoming a pro at paella - all using fresh and local produce.
With the ingredients in front of them, the School students will be guided step by step by the chef on the demonstration stage, as they chop, mix, stir, blend and even boil on their individual stove tops.
Once their culinary creation is complete, the School graduates will get to eat their hard work - enjoying a long table feast together, sharing their new knowledge and making new foodie friends.
With home cooking continuing to rise in popularity, these classes are a great way for people to improve on their culinary skills, no matter what level they’re at - from aspiring chefs to those who rarely set foot in a kitchen.
Daniel Abou-Chedid, better known as Chef Daniel, has been making waves in the food industry for more than a decade.
He currently runs catering company Fork n’ Knife, co-hosts the Food Hour radio show on Talking Lifestyle, heads up masterclasses on P&O Cruises and has demonstrated alongside celebrity chefs including Jamie Oliver, Manu Feildel and Miguel Maestre.
