Ruth Pretty Cooking School shares recipes, cooking ideas and entertaining secrets for 36 participants amid the rural tranquility of Te Horo.
Most weekends from January to March, the Ruth Pretty Cooking School shares recipes, cooking ideas and entertaining secrets for 36 participants amid the rural tranquility of Te Horo. Guest presenters - a range of top chefs and food personalities - complement Ruth Pretty's own classes. They show participants how to prepare the dishes on that days menu in a relaxed environment, where stories are told and questions answered.
A long lunch on the verandah, under sun umbrellas, or even at the chefs benches, savouring every dish from the class (with matching wines) finishes off the day. Recipes are provided and participants only need bring their culinary interest and an appetite.

Visit Ruth Pretty Catering
Many groups such as Probus, Rotary and garden groups like to visit Ruth Pretty Catering by arrangement during the week so that they can be shown around the catering company and garden. Guests can shop in the Kitchen Shop and enjoy a light lunch in Ruth Pretty's home.
