We've been to two classes now at VIVE and we can't wait to attend more. Love learning and trying to cook new cuisines. Especially love the new appreciation of food that we have!

We did the French cooking class and really enjoyed it. The class was fun, engaging and very organised. All of the ingredients were fresh and the food were delicious. Chef Julien was very helpful throughout the class and he would make sure that everyone knows what they were doing. Also, he was entertaining thus making the whole class very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Vive Cooking School!

We attended one of the corporate events at VIVE and it was fantastic. The whole group was able to get involved and the demonstrations were clear and easy to follow. Jean-Luc was extremely helpful and accommodating through the planning process and Jodie our chef was brilliant on the day. Highly recommend

What a fantastic experience! We did the Asian Steet food class and had a brilliant time. Jean-Luc was a wonderful teacher, and the class was super fun and easy to follow. Shout out to Marguerita for being the real MVP of the night, facilitating the class and helping us navigate the equipment. We can't wait to come back and do another class soon!

I came from Singapore for a holiday and i found out about their molecular cuisine class. It was very informative and fun! The result was yummy, especially the chocolate ice cream!

There's a good reason why this cooking school has such good reviews. We went in with high expectations and they were exceeded. The Ramen Masterclass was hands-on, fun and relaxing – Chef Steffen taught valuable kitchen skills and kept the class going at a good pace. Recipes were emailed at the end of the class and there were plenty of leftovers to take home. Due to the intimate class size, I recommend this cooking school over many other highly commercialised classes in Sydney. Looking forward to the next class!

We attended the "raviolis" class on Saturday and we loved everything! The place, Jodie our chef, the quality of ingredients and the final tasting all together... We can't stop sharing our photos to everyone and encourage our friends to book too! Thank you to the amazing team, it was one of the best gift I could have and now we will cook raviolis for the next diner at home 🙂

Highly recommend.

We attended the 'Cooking delicious ravioli' course on the weekend at VIVE Cooking School in Rosebery and it was fantastic! A extraordinary birthday gift and celebration 🙂 We had a great time and we will always appreciate a chef's effort in presenting home-made ravioli on a menu from now on! Keep up the good work!

I bought 14 ladies in from Camden to attend a Paella and Churros Spanish Cooking Class. The cooking space was beautiful clean and so well organised. Our Chef was amazing and really engaged our group. Your class was excellent and every guest raved about their dish...and all the little details!. The Paella was incredible. Thank you so much for the most enjoyable Saturday with your team. We will be back shortly! Nicci Made in Macarthur Food Tours.

I attended the Lousiana cooking class yesterday - where I learnt to cook seafood gumbo, dirty rice and okra chips. This is hands down the best cooking class I have ever attended (I've been to 4 in sydney). Chef Julien was very entertaining and informative - not only I got to learn to cook, but I also learnt how to fillet a snapper (first time in my life), how to cut veggies properly, and various other useful tips!!! The cooking school itself is modern, clean, and decorative. Overall it was a fun class to do and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended..

The simple act of cooking and eating is both communal and emotional. Food provides a deep sense of connection and has the power to bring people together - and so VIVE Cooking School was born.
