Cooking courses in Geelong

Jamie's Ministry of Food Geelong has found a new home at The Gordon's East Geelong campus (GTEC)! Our previous location was in Moorabool Street, where over 10,000 Geelong locals learnt to cook.

In addition to GTEC students, participants from the community will also be able to learn delicious recipes, essential cooking skills and techniques and nutrition tips in 90-minute weekly classes. Our hands-on cooking course uses Jamie Oliver's recipes and his philosophy on cooking and eating fresh and healthy food.

In support of the program, the Victorian Government will provide $1.7 million from its Workforce Training Innovation Fund to help fund the program and enable participants from the Geelong region to engage with the program, as well as supporting access to educational opportunities that improve the well-being of the community. 

Through this new partnership, we can't wait to continue delivering an accessible food education to people living in the region. We look forward to keeping cooking skills alive and inspiring more people to establish lifelong good food habits through healthy eating and The Gordon provides us with the perfect home from which to do this.

Participants are introduced to new cooking skills, fabulous Jamie Oliver recipes and gain confidence in the kitchen. Learning to cook different dishes each class, participants are taught how to make a variety of delicious meals from back-to-basics with eggs, inspiring curries, colourful salads, fresh sides and more!
