flavoursome and of course meat, fish and vegetable BBQ dishes. As each class is complete in itself

The Cooking school, which becomes a garden room for functions and the beautiful Conservatory are
proving popular for birthdays, parties, special anniversaries, corporate functions, charity fundraisers,
AGM‟s and small wedding parties. You and your guests will have the room completely to yourself
when you book.

Start your function with champagne cocktail by the pool, or in the conservatory. It is a unique setting
and gives an opportunity for speeches in private without obtrusive background noise as so often
happens in restaurants. And of course, delicious catering by Beverley with a menu of your choice.

                                                                                                        Page 5.

flavours. Cost: $20

A collection of delicious little savoury and sweet items to have with coffee, tea or for any occasion

We have printed a limited edition of class recipes. The purpose of this was to give people who may
not be able to come to every class an opportunity to have a collection of our recipes. The book has
100 pages, no illustrations but all the recipes are much loved and well tested. It covers subjects from
finger food, savoury first courses, main dishes, vegetables and lots of lovely desserts, cakes and
easy breads. Cost $20

Printed again for classes this is a limited edition and we have just a few copies of the favourite
Christmas recipes from both classes (and magazine articles). It is also a marvellous book for

advance, puddings, some first courses and lots of stuffing‟s, sauces for meats and poultry. Cost $20

A collection of some of Beverley‟s favourite recipes from classes and articles, soups, simple and
exotic starters and finger food, main courses, vegetables and scrumptious cakes, biscuits and
desserts with lots of goodies for the pantry cupboard, such as unusual jams, pickles, etc. Cost $20

You will now have the opportunity to participate in your own master class in your own home and
successfully create the dishes for yourselves. This 90 minute Favourites DVD features Beverley
demonstrating a tantalising array of recipes from the best roast chicken and vegetables to Italian
soups, exquisite chocolate desserts and a grand dinner party. Volume 2, the Barbecue and Salads
DVD has a range of interesting ways to package, marinate and prepare food for the barbecue and
just as important, features a range of accompaniments from the best ever potato salad to lovely fresh
fruity desserts for outdoor eating.

No need to buy a costly cookbook or sit in front of the screen, copying out ingredients as a recipe CD
is included so all the dishes demonstrated can be printed out on your computer.

Cost: $25 inc. postage & handling

As well as the books we stock a small amount of kitchen and pantry items for sale. We know
these work well because we use them daily and test them to make sure they fulfil the requirements of keen
cooks. They must be not only useful but also reliable and make ideal gifts for hard-to-buy friends, clients or
colleagues who love to cook.

Baking sheets of hi-tech silicone (Per sheet, $18 plus $10 packing & postage)
Nothing sticks to this baking sheet which can be used over and over and in the long run is far more economical
than buying baking paper. Just dip into the sink in warm water and wipe dry. Put it on your baking tin when
cooking sticky pumpkin, a chicken or any kind of meat, biscuits or meringues. Its uses are endless.

Barbecue sheets (Per Sheet $25 plus $10 packing & postage)
As above but thicker and stronger so it can be put over the barbecue to prevent marinated meats from sticking.
Not suitable for an open flame you just cut it to size and when you have cooked, dip it into a bucket of soapy
water and brush all the mess away. Also wonderful to carry in the car for picnics when you may have to use a
public barbecue which is usually not left clean.

Fold and Flip cutting boards (Two sheets $18 plus $10 packing & postage)
Made in the blue and yellow colours of the school, these flexible-chopping boards can be lifted easily so you
can flip your chopped food into a saucepan without any fuss. There are two in each package so one can be
kept for meats or food which has strong smells such as garlic; the other can be kept for cutting fruits, cakes or

Pink Salt ($5 per 100g packet plus $6 packing & postage)
We have a stock of salt from the underground saline waters of the Murray Darling Basin. Flaky and pale pink
in colour this is pure and free from any contamination or chemicals. Not only does it have a wonderful fresh
salty taste so you don‟t need to use very much; this salt contains natural minerals of potassium and
magnesium which are beneficial elements and assist in the absorption of calcium. This also makes a great
inexpensive present.

Knives ($7.50 per knife, plus $6 packing and postage).
Small red serrated Swiss knives. The best tiny sharp knife we know.
