Get Trolleyd with The Cooking School

The Cooking School
The Cooking School

Part of a unique interactive experience, The Cooking School had, what it seemed to be a pop-up glasshouse in Castle Towers. A venue that is passionate about fresh food and diverse shopping culture.

To celebrate all things delicious and autumn, Castle Towers has a range of fun activities to be apart of. I joined the kitchen to try out some new cocktail recipes. There are other programs available, cooking demonstrations for kids and adults.

With a focus on fresh native ingredients, healthy drinking and having fun, it was a great opportunity to share in their passion for mixology adventure.

Under the watchful eye of Captain Chris from Trolleyd, we take flight to embracing the qualities of sustainability, native Australia, foraged and local organic produce. With a passion for mixology, classic vibes, I knew this was going to be a fun class.
