Freestyle Escape Cooking School presents an exclusive hands-on culinary experience with one of the most talked about chefs in the country, part-owner and head chef of Melbourne’s hottest Coda Bar + Restaurant, Adam D’Sylva.
Adam’s culinary resume reads as a who’s who of some of the world’s best.
From working with Thomas Keller at Per Se In New York, headlining alongside Martin Boetz at Longrain Melbourne, commanding the burners at Pearl Restaurant (one of Melbourne’s most highly regarded restaurants) as well as stints at Cosi in South Yarra… it is no difficult to understand what all the fuss is about.
For one day only a lucky few will join in an unforgettable culinary experience on Saturday 13th August with an intimate class designed to maximise learning, giving attendees ample opportunity for one-on-one instruction from one of Australia’s most talented chefs.
Hands-on and fully interactive, this class features a menu that displays Adam’s flare for perfectly balanced flavours and includes his signature Sugar Cane Prawns. You can even make them yourself! We’ve snagged the recipe.
Adam D’Sylva’s class next month continues Freestyle Escape’s hugely successful Celebrity Chef series which has made the cooking school one of the most popular on the Sunshine Coast. Past classes have showcased the skills of Restaurant Balzac’s Matthew Kemp and Longrain’s Martin Boetz.
“We started the Celebrity Chef series last year with French Chef Bruno Loubet who visited from London,” says Freestyle Owner Martin Duncan.
“Since then our program has focussed on bringing truly talented chefs to this gorgeous location. The classes are so relaxed and our guests love the opportunity to really get to know a chef that otherwise they would only ever have seen on stage or television,” Martin said.
Although the honour is hotly contested, the most popular chef so far has been patissier extraordinaire Adriano Zumbo. “I’m not quite sure if it was the lure of dessert or the lure of Adriano himself,” laughs Martin. “Even if we’d asked him to stay with us for a week, there still would’ve been a waiting list as long as my arm!”
Set in the undercover, outdoor kitchen of Freestyle Escape, just over one hour north of Brisbane in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, Adam D’Sylva’s class is set to be a day packed full of good cooking, great taste and lots of fun.
