Homeland Cooking School

From Peter’s Masterclasses on Kaimona to thei pastry chef, Louise’s baking, to guest tutor classes on everything from Singaporean Street food to Kiwi Italiano to Jewish food to Ceviche and Margaritas. Food from every Homeland.

Homeland's lessons are not just for adults. Weekends are all about whānau and friends. Bring flatmates, parents, grandies, kids and cook great meals from scratch together. The cooking stations can be shared by up to six guests at a time so bring a group and have some fun. If you’re on your own, or in a pair, you might even get a chance to meet some new fellow cooks. What’s guaranteed, no matter what group, is an afternoon or evening of fun, laughs and great kai.

Homeland in Wynyard Quarter is the newest venture from renowned New Zealand chef Peter Gordon and his partner Alastair CarruthersThis novel concept is best described as a Food Embassy - it’s a dining room, film studio, cooking school, food innovation hub and community space; a social enterprise with the goal of connecting food and people - and boosting trade. 

The cooking school will open its doors to the public in the new year, focussing on approachable everyday food with chef masterclasses on the side. On weekends, classes will encourage families to come and cook together. This approachable ethos will carry over to the dining room too. The menu will be seasonal and based on the producers Homeland are working with for the month, think Cloudy Bay clams, veggies from Papatūānuku Kōkiri Marae, MooDew raw milk Paneer and Origin South Lamb (these producers will rotate every 4-6 weeks).

There will be ‘greatest hit’ dishes like Peter’s Turkish Eggs that won the hearts of Londoners at The Providores for so many years too. The waterside site is perfect for business, locals, producer events, families, dogs and sunset drinks. 

Free parking for your first hour at Jellicoe Street car park. See more here
