We are serious about food and wine, and have always provided recipes and cooking advice to enthusiastic ‘foodie’ guests. In 2015, we wrote the Lord Howe Island Cookbook, but this only encouraged more enthusiasm and questions from avid watchers of MasterChef, My Kitchen Rules, Iron Chef and Great Australian Bake Off.
Now, due to firm and persistent demand from guests, our Executive Chef, Alasdair Nicolson, hosts a weekly cooking class on the Pinetrees verandah. He covers a range of topics and reveals some professional secrets to help take your cooking to a new level. Al wrote the recipes in our Lord Howe Island Cookbook, and has a special knack for converting high-end commercial cooking to home recipes. The best part of the class, unlike TV shows, is that you get to taste everything he prepares. Bring a cup of tea or a glass of wine.
