Visit them today

Proud foodie Tamara, opened up The Little Cooking School to share her passion for community and food with locals and visitors to Mudgee. Based beside a four-bedroom homestead, it is the perfect place for a weekend getaway.

The Little Cooking School offers visitors an informal, relaxed creative space where you can take casual cooking classes, regardless of your skill levels (with or without a skillet!) The classes feature three-course menus showcasing the best regional produce you can find, so the cherry on top of your day is enjoying your efforts over lunch with local wines, hand-picked and paired to tickle your tastebuds.

Being based in Mudgee, in the Central-West region of New South Wales, means the town is heavily reliant on tourism, particularly from Sydneysiders. But with lockdown forcing residents to either cancel or postpone virtually all bookings into the region, things were looking grim. ANd the situation worsened when the region had to go under restrictions themselves and locals couldn’t join in the cooking lessons.

But with Sydney roaring back to life and travel becoming a little less restricted, Tamara has high hopes that Mudgee will see travel the local area take off with visitors stopping by The Little Cooking School.
