We have done cooking schools all over the world but never in NZ. So on a trip North we tried out The Veggie Tree in Kaeo. Anna didn't have any scheduled events that matched our timing so she offered a 4 hr hands-on class for the 2 of us.
Must admit that when we arrived we wondered if we had the right address as it was an ancient house up a steep drive. However as soon as Anna welcomed us into her home kitchen we knew we had made the right decision and over the next 4 hours we made a wide range of dishes mostly from fresh ingredients that Anna had grown or foraged. We aren't vegetarians but it was great to learn some new flavour combinations and really helpful tips.
Better yet was then we ate it all for lunch, the orange and almond cake was worth the trip on its own plus stocking up with lots of Anna's preserves. If you love good, healthy food then go and visit Anna.

An embarrassingly long amount of time has lapsed since this amazing review, but better late than never...
I remember this class well and really enjoyed our afternoon together, the orange and almond cake is still one of my favourite recipes to make and share, it even appears in my Autumn and Winter Cookbook. I love to host travellers to Northland and showcase the regions amazing produce in my delicious plant-based recipes. Thanks so much Peter and Janet for taking the time to give me such a lovely review, Anna x
