Frequently Asked Questions

Can I do the online course if I’ve done a hands-on course before?

Depending on when and where you did a course there may be some slightly different recipes! However whether you have learnt some of these recipes before, guaranteed you will learn something new in this online format. The best thing about it is that it gives everyone a chance to take a break from the stresses of the outside world, a chance to hang out and socialise with amazing new people! So we welcome previous JMOF graduates, all are welcome!

Can I make a group booking?

If you are part of a family or group that would like to take part in our online cooking program together, you can do this via the online booking form. If you need assistance simply email 

Can I send another person in the place of someone that I’ve booked in?

Bookings are non-transferrable and non-refundable. We will be recording all cooking classes which you will have full access to so if you are unable to attend a class you can simply head to the link we provide you with to watch the class in your own time. 

Can you come and deliver a session at our centre and location?

Yes, there is the opportunity for Jamie's Ministry of Food to run an outreach program at your centre or location. Please call Support Office directly for a personalised quote on 03 9282 9104.

The program must be delivered in our centres due to financial, logistical and OH&S requirements. We have beautiful centres that have been styled and designed to create a warm and welcoming environment and we invite people to come and make the most of these lovely spaces. 

Can you do a one-off cooking class?

The Jamie's Ministry of Food program, has been designed to promote long term behaviour change. Independent research has indicated 5 weeks is the ideal amount of time required to embed health benefits for the long term. 

Research has shown four classes of Jamie Oliver's Learn Your Fruit and Veg can create positive behaviour change around food.

Do I have to cook along during the classes?

We encourage participants to cook along with us during the online classes, however there is no pressure to do so! If you'd like to simply watch and ask questions a long the way or cook some of the steps, that is totally fine!

Do I have to pay upfront?

Booking through our website is the preferred option for our online classes. An invoice can be provided for larger groups if required, with all invoices to be paid prior to the course commencing. If you need to speak with our Finance team regarding any payments, please email 

Do I need to attend all classes?

If you are unable to attend a class in person, a recording will be available for you to watch the class in your own time. 

If you miss a live class, it is important you complete the recorded version before beginning the next class as important food and knife safety skills are taught to prepare you for the upcoming classes. 

Do you offer childcare?

Jamie's Ministry of Food does not offer child minding services. Children under 12 cannot be in the centre while a class is running for safety reasons.
