The Chef’s Studio on Bree Street: Cooking Demos with Matt Manning

Matt Manning's studio in the CBD’s foodie hub is a slick and contemporary space that hosts cooking classes, food-and-wine evenings, and other exciting culinary events.

Brought to you by Matt Manning, chef-patron of the wildly popular Grub & Vine bistro on Bree Street, this cool and contemporary Chef’s Studio is neatly housed on the second floor of the same building as his restaurant.

Thirty-one-year-old UK-born Matt, who cut his teeth in Michelin-starred restaurants under the likes of Marcus Wareing and superstar celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, conceived of the studio as a space to host his interactive cooking classes.

Guided by either Matt or a consummate guest chef, the classes allow participants to assist in the preparation of multi-course gourmet meal, during which they’ll gain fresh, new insights into the art of cooking, and pick up some nifty tricks of the trade. And, once preparation is complete, guests get to sit down and enjoy the fruits of their labour.

Courses on offer include One Ingredient; How To Cook; and the Masterclasses (given by Matt or a guest chef).

One Ingredient: Thanksgiving

Matt Manning Chef's Table

The One Ingredient for November is the cranberry, which will be included in all five courses (each one paired with vintages handpicked by a sommelier from The Wine Thief). A tribute to Native American heritage (they used cranberries in everything from cooking to dyes and medicine). Attendees will form teams to recreate two of the five courses, following a demonstration by Matt.
