“Walter Trupp’s personal signature goes into every dish you make!”
International three hat chef Michelin Star Walter Trupp is the passion and Anna Trupp is the drive behind Trupp- THE CHEFS TABLE. Originally established in 2011 (Trupp Cooking School 2011 to 2014) following its closure, Trupp- The Chefs Table cooking school was established with Walter and his wife Anna together, fine tuning the hands-on cooking school and establishing on-line content reflecting Walters vast repertoire of food knowledge.
2021 Walter and Anna launched their online cooking school, “Cook With Trupp” now featuring over 15 online cooking courses. To visit go to https://cookwithtrupp.com
The Cooking School
In addition to his exceptional culinary skills and knowledge, Walter has single-handedly created and written every cooking class available to you at the cooking school. Anna implements the management, organisation and development of the cooking school drawing on her own formal training and extensive hands-on experience in Hospitality management as well as a director of her own prior & current businesses. Walter’s hands-on involvement from the creation to the preparation and execution of a cooking class means his personal signature goes into every dish you come to make, bringing the potential three hat chef out in you!
You may experience the art of cooking in an ultra modern kitchen that emphasizes fun, conversation, skill development, and healthy living.
Trupp- THE CHEFS TABLE Cooking School in Melbourne has been designed to accommodate a wide range of interests and abilities, with a wealth of courses created for those just starting out in the kitchen, through to those who are confident gourmet chefs or for those who want to have their own private cooking event or team building event filled with fun and great food. You will cook in copper and Le Creuset pots and get to try out leading appliances. Also, the Cooking School is located within a block of Prahran Market so that our classes can take advantage of all of the benefits that this wonderful food district has to offer.
Educational and fun – All of our classes are hands-on guided, interactive and fun. From our experience, this is the only way for you to learn about food and improve your cooking skills. We also keep our class numbers low so that we can spend lots of ‘one on one’ time with you and show you every little detail of food preparation. This also means we can run our classes for longer.
Choose from a wide selection of classes – If you want to improve your knife skills, develop your skills in regional cooking styles, or learn about probiotic foods, we have a class for you. Trupp offers basic cooking classes in Melbourne, check out our Melbourne cooking classes schedule for the full list of class offerings.
Hands-on cooking classes: Intimate learning sessions for up to 10 students.
Each participant selects and cooks dishes from the menu provided, using the professional-standard appliances that are made available. Groups are kept small to ensure that no student misses any vital information regarding food preparation and cooking techniques.
Courses run over half a day, a full day and the cooking for beginners class runs for three x 3 hour evenings so that students can get the most out of the training offered. Each course is designed to be interactive so that each participant can learn a full range of techniques and approaches.
The group is treated to the meals that everyone has helped prepare, complimented by matching wines. Each student leaves with a full recipe book, so they can apply their new skills at home.
For most sessions, Walter will be your teacher and host. However, for some classes, as outlined in the course program, you may be treated to guest chefs from around Melbourne, across Australia, or from elsewhere in the world, experts who will share their skills and simply join in the fun.
Corporate Team Building Events & Private Sessions – Bookings for private lessons, corporate team building or social functions.
Corporate and individual training – If the scheduled classes are not for you, we can host the best corporate functions and will give you exactly what you are after. We have some great corporate offers and we are also happy to go out of our way to design a special event for you.
