The S+S Kitchen

The String + Salt Kitchen is an inviting cooking and dining space. We've combined the warmth and intimacy of a home kitchen with the equipment and resources to satisfy professional chef's and homecooks alike.

Our hands on classes are known not just for great food and presenters. Our regulars have come to love gathering around the String + Salt table to share for great company, conversation and maybe a good glass of wine or two!


Street Food Series

The S&S Cooking School will be cracking out the charcoal and hitting the streets for a series of outdoor classes and events in our Street Food Series.

Enjoy the summer weather while learning how to prepare traditional Malaysian satay with Cindy Powell, a Turkish street-food feast with Michelle Cann, a hearty Argentinian grill with Hernan Palacio from Senor BBQ or super tasty vegan street-food with Mettle & Grace's Melanie Leeson, plus plenty more...

Kitchen 101 Series

hone your skills and learn some great techniques in our Kitchen 101 Series.

Some of your favourite presenters will be back to teach the finer points of French pastry, Chinese dumplings, Japanese yaki (grill) cooking, fresh pasta making, home brewing, salami making, pickling as well as returning to Max & Jan Davey's permaculture paradise for the summer edition of How Does Your Garden Grow.



It's a lifestyle. A commitment to the practical day-to-day elements of living - growing, hunting and foraging your own food.

Our Practiculture Series will present to you the opportunity to expand your skills in butchery, curing, foraging and making.

With Winter approaching we turn to comfort food. Whether it is nostalgia, seasonality or tradition, comfort food means very different things to different people. 

In this series, we explore the food that nourishes, cures and reassures people from across the world.
