The Flying Chef  (5 hrs)

More than just a cooking class…..

Departing Sydney Airport we initially fly over the harbour before heading to the picturesque countryside of the Southern Highlands for a culinary experience like no other.

Join renowned Chef James Viles and his team at Biota Dining for a day of gastronomic splendour. With a plethora of experience on both a domestic and international scale James has led the restaurant to success, being awarded with One Chef’s Hat in 2011.

Stroll through the kitchen garden to experience Biota’s dedication to the extraction of both taste and aroma in all produce and enjoy the unique opportunity to taste interesting flavours and learn something new.

Whether your just a beginner or just want to be better, James will share his passion, focusing on artisan produce and seasonal botanicals in every aspect, whilst supporting both local farmers and growers alike to create simple yet delectable food for any occasion.

It’s as simple as fly, cook and eat!
