“I chose to take the most important people in my life to The Sacred Chef Cooking School as an opportunity to enjoy our own company in a totally different context than the day to day routine. Well, we gained so very much more. The mocking of my slow prep skills was fun (for a while) however, that was the point. We all got to shine in all our special ways and laugh at ourselves when sometimes we forgot to in our daily life. I heartily recommend The Sacred Chef Cooking School – it is about figuring out what it means when people say:- “It’s the journey, not the Destination” Thank you Sudha

“Hi Sudha,

Just wanted to tell you Lorraine & I had a fantastic time last weekend at your cooking class. Thank you. We enjoyed your hospitality & professionalism & would love to come back again, maybe for a 6 week one!



PS What was the yummy slice in the goodie bag!”


Stay overnight at Maleny Views cottage resort!

“Thanks again for such an amazing experience. We learnt new tricks and didn’t lose any fingers so I’d call that a win.
I have done nothing but recommend the cooking class to friends and family since arriving home with bags and bags full of left-over food! You’ll be pleased to know my first attempt at making your vegetarian curry wasn’t a disaster, and i’m going to have a crack at your chocolate cake over the next couple of days. The whole experience was very relaxed and your approach is very supportive. Meeting you was by far the highlight and definitely made the food taste better. Next time we’ll cook for you my friend.
Ryan & Amy”

“Hi Sudha,

Just to thank you for the cooking class yesterday.
I really enjoyed the experience, having done several in this area, I can rate yours the best I have been to. Your course offered a more casual teaching atmosphere which for me made it a great experience, both in the making of the food and in the eating of it, as well as being in the company of a great group of people.
Thanks also to John for his efforts, for a ‘beginner’ he did a great job.

Look forward to catching up on another class sometime in the future.
Best regards,
Stan Gooch”

Food For Love – Passionate about Cooking

Eating good food, cooking great dishes, love and sex – there are strong parallels between these very human activities! They are decidedly interlinked, as someone once said, “if you want to know how a man makes love, watch him eat.”

In this cooking class we will visit some of the great dishes to eat when in love, to woo your ‘would be’ lover with and what foods can ignite a flagging fire. Discover natural aphrodisiacs in food and learn about the history of these foods of love and the famous recipes of love.

Cooking is alchemy after all, transforming base ingredients into new and wonderful dishes with which to delight the senses. And like the work of a good witch or warlock what happens in the kitchen can affect everyone in the household; brewing up delicious dishes containing spells of love and libido lengthening fervour!

Lunch Included!

Sundays 10am to 2pm here in Maleny
