Overview

Yallingup's #1 Cooking School teaches you the secret to authentic Tuscan, Thai or Wood-fired cuisine in a hands-on class. A fun experience you're guaranteed to enjoy. Hosts Sioban and Carlo Baldini are famous for their warm hospitality both at the cooking school, the Wildwood Valley Cottages, and their Italian tour business Mad About Tuscany. Sioban trained as a chef under Neil Perry and further Thai training at Sydney's Longrain. Carlo hails from Cortona, Italy and loves to share his knowledge through the Wood-fired class.
