Cooking classes in the Derwent Valley

Shared by |tags,

The sweeping hills, rugged mountains and lake scenery are just some of the reasons why so many people go to Tasmania to unwind and reconnect with nature.

But in addition to a long list of natural wonders and must-see sights that showcase the region's waterways, beaches and wildernesses, you can also learn more about the best ways to preserve the regions seemingly untouched beauty.

At least this is part of the thinking behind a new, sustainably aware food movement that is flourishing on the island state.

It also underpins the sustainable food philosophy at The Agrarian Kitchen – a working farm located in Lachlan just 45 minutes from Hobart in the Derwent Valley.

Owner Rodney Dunn and his wife Severine run regular cooking classes at The Agrarian Kitchen, which uses ingredients raised on the farm including vegetables, herbs, fruit, chicken, geese and goats to make delicious, homemade meals based on the principles of organic farming practices.

In addition to running artesian and lifestyle classes, you can also take your little ones along to a paddock-to-place cooking experience.

This particular class is designed to help educate young children about how food is sourced, as well as their distinct flavours and properties.
