Culinary excellence is a cornerstone of the Otahuna experience. A hands-on cooking lesson with Executive Chef Jimmy McIntyre provides an enjoyable overview of the philosophies behind the Lodge’s celebrated food and wine programme as profiled in Bon Appetit
, Conde Nast Traveller
, and The Financial Times
Classes are typically reserved only for resident guests of the Lodge. They provide an introduction to planning menus and offer a special chance to learn first-hand cooking techniques in our kitchens before tasting the delicious results for yourselves. Classes are available in one-hour or three-hour formats.
Occassionally, Otahuna offers cooking classes to guests not staying at the property. To see if there are any forthcoming classes scheduled, please review our current Calendar of Events
