“Whipped Up have a team of great cooks able to accomodate my low carb diet requirements with variety, textures and flavours. They are also great NDIS support, providing good company, friendly conversation and real connection. I highly recommend Whipped Up.”

“I’ve been cooking with Georgia twice a week for over three years and I love the meals we cook together! We have great fun and they have been such a great help to me and my family, supporting me in the kitchen and beyond.”

Atilla fills our fridge every Friday with the most delicious meals that the fussiest boys in the world even eat. It isn’t just the healthy, homemade food that makes life in our house possible, it’s the care, understanding and simplicity with which it happens. We couldn’t do life without Attila! Thank you so much for looking after our ever chaotic and complicated household.

I’ve been working with Brooke for well over 12 months now and have had quite a delightful experience with her. Brooke’s professionalism and broad range of meal ideas, skills and confidence shines through every week. I have learnt so much in our time working together about food prep, cooking and has helped expand my skills in the kitchen. My experience with Brooke is a positive and influential one that has given me much more variety, general food health and preparation.

I really enjoy Julia coming to teach me how to cook. I always look forward to our cooking session. The two hours go by so quickly, I just wish our session could last much longer! While she is here we talk and work at the same time. It is like therapy for me and my mum. Julia is more than a cooking instructor to us. She has been coming for nearly 8 months, we are now like friends. We really appreciate Julia’s efforts. Thanks to Whipped Up for providing such a meaningful and great service to NDIS participants.

Whipped Up has been cooking with me for almost two years and they are absolutely fantastic! I’ve been introduced to so many new flavours and foods that I wouldn’t otherwise have experienced and they are always mindful of my many allergies (eggs, dairy, nuts, seafood and sesame), and has always been very flexible and happy to work around my hectic schedule.

Julia is an extremely supportive worker, who cooks delicious fresh meals with me every week. I am FODMAP sensitive, my partner is autistic and has cancer, and we are both diabetic. Julia goes above and beyond to ensure we have nutritious food that both of us can enjoy, with some treats in the rotation too. We love having Julia in our team, and would be quite lost without her.

How does a cooking class with Whipped Up work?
When you book a class with Whipped Up, we ask you a few questions about what equipment you have in your kitchen, what kind of skills you’re hoping to acquire, your favourite foods and also any allergies or food intolerances you might have.
Based on this, we design a few recipes, hit the shops for ingredients and then spend two hours with you whipping up some delicious, no fuss food using equipment you already own!
Why do you host classes in our home, instead of at a school?
There’s a few reasons for this. Firstly, it helps keep costs down: cooking classes at cooking schools are expensive because of rent, equipment and other basic business overheads, like electricity and gas.
Secondly, we believe that people who learn to cook a recipe in an environment they’re familiar with, using equipment that belongs to them, helps them better retain the skills and information they learn.
Finally, we are able to customise our recipes to you. After all, what’s the point in learning how to cook food you don’t love, using equipment you might not have at home?
How many people can come to a class?
Our prices include two people and we charge an extra $50 for any extra people. While you ultimately choose how many friends you’d like to invite to join us, we recommend capping it at four people. This is so that everyone feels involved and gets the most out of it.
What’s included in each class?
We provide all ingredients (minus salt, pepper and oil – we assume most houses have these items), copies of the recipes we create together and, depending on what equipment you have in your home, we may bring a few extra basic tools to help the process along (we almost always bring our favourite silicone spatulas and our chefs knives).
Should you wish to purchase any of these tools, we can make suggestions on where to buy them.
Can I give a class as a gift?
Absolutely! We encourage gift giving. Contact us about our gift vouchers.

Oh boy how the time does fly... When I started Whipped Up, I told myself I'd commit a year to this little idea of mine. One year, and if it didn't take off, I'd retrain as a teacher and teach either home economics or history (my two great loves). I hoped like anything...
