FULLY BOOKED "Book & Cook" Quick + Simple = Delicious - Thursday 20 June, 6.45pm

Culinary Workshops

Whether you are new to cooking or your meals just need a rev-up, then this is the workshop for you. 

Every day there are mouths to feed and meals to cook... this is often just one tick on a very long list of tasks that also need to be accomplished. So it's no surprise that the perennial question 'What's for dinner?' causes our stress levels to rise.

Thankfully, Quick + Simple = Delicious provides a very intelligent solution. It proves that if you use just a few simple ingredients (plus a few store-cupboard essentials like oil and flour etc) and throw in a little know-how, the result is delicious food with maximum flavour and minimum fuss: 

sourdough + tomatoes + olives + garlic + chicken = Sicilian chicken

traybake pastry case + vanilla ice cream + peaches + raspberries = peach melba tart.

This book is designed to make your meals tastier and your life easier.

There are recipes for dinners, desserts and lunches and brunches, all the ingredients are presented visually so you can see what you need at a glance and the cooking instructions are as simple as 1, 2, 3.

At the end of the night, each participant will go home with a copy of this great hardback book which has all the recipes you need to simplify your weeknight cooking. 

Want to bring a partner to the workshop? They won't receive  a copy of the book - but you can add a +1 for $25. If you wish to do this we will need to process a manual booking. Call us on (09) 3606513. 

If you are wishing to redeem a gift voucher please email us books@cookthebooks.co.nz and we will process your booking.

To Clarify!

·         When you book into a Culinary Workshop you accept and agree to our terms, conditions and booking policy set out above.

·         You are responsible for turning up to the class on time and on the day you have booked. ·         You will notify us if you wish to transfer your booking to another person.

·         We are a business and we make every effort to ensure that this policy is disclosedat the time you book. As such, we won't be able to bend these terms for explanations or excuses for not showing up to an Event or Workshop.


These terms are commonly practiced by other businesses where you are paying for time or professional services. You are paying for our chef’s time and ingredients on the day you book for. This time & these ingredients cannot be used on another day. This is exactly like buying a ticket to a concert - you go at the time you booked for. If you don't - you miss out. It's the same with us.


Our booking policy is very strict and we do not make exceptions to it.
