The CIRA Cooking School and Events

The CIRA Cooking School is virtually unique outside of Italy. A cooking school staffed by the best Italian chefs offering courses to the general public and eventually specialised courses for students and the industry.

Classes are conducted at Casa Barilla 4 Annandale Street Annandale. We urge you to book early in order to avoid disappointment.

All classes start at 6:30pm and will finish at approximately 9pm.  The cost is $90 per person ($80 for Friends of CIRA).
