FAQ

What makes Sachie’s Kitchen amazing?

  • Our team are all Asian & we travel to every country we run classes, a minimum of once a year in so we strive to teach the most authentic tastes.  PS: If you are worried about communication, don’t!  We are totally fluent English-speakers too!
  • We teach a minimum of 3 dishes per class (not just one as many other classes out there do).
  • You get to be TOTALLY Hands-on in your own fully equipped kitchen stations.
  • Our chefs/teachers compete and have won a number of awards in the culinary industry so have serious cred – but importantly don’t use intimidating cheffy-speak!  We like to laugh a lot!
  • We have a major stand for Sustainability – we compost daily so if you’re looking for worm pee for your garden just ask us!  We also believe in the bigger picture so donate a meal to a hungry child for every class you take.
  • We serve only the BEST boutique wine and beer but at a fair price, Asahi, Orion (Okinawan beer), Singha, Dog Point, Amisfield, Kumeu River, Misha’s Vineyard – the best stuff!
