The mission of VIVE Cooking School is to empower and connect our community by igniting people’s passion for real food. As one of Sydney’s favourite cooking schools with a consistent 5 star Google rating, we are proud to have taught thousands of students how to cook wonderful dishes, as well as create meaningful connections and strengthen bonds through food.

We asked our students why they love participating in our cooking classes and we’re here to share the top three responses that we received.

1) Learn the cuisine you like

Here at VIVE Cooking School, we believe that food is centred around culture and is the fabric of our society. We are proud to have a wide range of cuisines that we base our cooking classes on. From making authentic Italian pasta from scratch, to creating an indulgent Thai dessert, our students love that they can learn to cook their favourite dishes. With our cooking classes, you’ll be able to learn the cuisine you like, as well as a cuisine you may have not tried before!

A few of our cuisines include: African, Asian, European, North American, South American, Vegetarian and Desserts

Here’s what our recent student, Phil, had to say about his experience doing our Ramen Masterclass:

I was lucky to have discovered Ramen in San Diego of all places, and was completely hooked. I have ordered it here a few times since and been extremely disappointed with the quality, so my hopes for this at a DIY cooking class weren’t exactly high. How wrong I was!!!!!

As expected the class was fun, informative, hands-on and very easy to engage in. Thank you to Chef for setting a great atmosphere… I would not hesitate to recommend this class, and am keen to try this recipe again at home”
– Phil Green 

2) Have a fun night out 

Thousands of students have walked through our doors for multiple reasons, including: for a fun date idea, family bonding or a unique experience with friends. No matter what the occasion is, our students learn how to cook delicious dishes in a fun and engaging way from our talented chefs during our premium cooking classes.

If you’re looking for a unique way to spend your night, our fun-packed cooking classes are the perfect night out idea. If you’re indecisive about where to eat out for dinner for a special occasion, why not try cooking up a restaurant-worthy meal yourself right here in the VIVE Cooking School Kitchen?

Don’t just take our word for it! After having a date night at VIVE, here’s what Kieran had to say: 

“Great class, excellent teaching and facilitators, and truly some of the best tasting food I’ve had!

Partner and I went for a fun night, and the VIVE team made sure we had an absolute ball while we learned to make some delicious Mexican. Looking forward to the next class!”
