If you’re from Melbourne, you’re familiar with the South Melbourne Market. You’ve trawled the stalls over the weekend looking for fresh produce, or wandered through for a spot of window shopping after a yoga class or brunch nearby. It’s almost a given that you’ve dropped by for the sole purpose of eating a South Melbourne Dim Sim. If these weren’t reasons enough to spend a Saturday in South Melbourne, the launch of the Neff Market Kitchen should absolutely entice you over for a visit.
Previously known as the South Melbourne Market cooking school, which has been operating for four years, the Neff kitchen is born of a sponsorship with German kitchen appliance brand, Neff Australia. If you’re passionate about cooking, food, produce and are willing to get your hands dirty, the Neff kitchen will offer you a terrific space to discover and connect with a range of fantastic cuisines.
The Neff Market Kitchen boasts an incredibly impressive line up of guest chefs to host classes, so much so that it is an absolute guarantee the head of at least one of your favourite Melbourne hotspots will headline a class here.
The kitchen is utilised for a number of purposes, including demonstrations, workshops, private classes and hire; a fantastic, innovative location for your next work function, hens party, milestone birthday or private dinner party.
Classes host a maximum of 12 people and occur from Wednesday through to Sunday on a weekly basis. These small class sizes allow for participants to deeply engage with their guest chef and discuss their speciality. Class schedules are released six times a year, typically 2 months in advance, with a break from mid December through to the beginning of February.
The Neff Market Kitchen is currently open at 90 Cecil Street, South Melbourne. A free open cooking class will occur on Sunday August 16th from 10.00am until 3.00pm.
