Time Out says

Anybody – from toast specialists to confident home cooks – can learn to cook at Vive

Vive Cooking School has got a jam-packed line-up of rotating classes pitched at cooks with differing levels of ambition and one-offs from special guests – they’ve even hosted Black Star Pastry’s Chris Thé, teaching the secrets of his famous strawberry watermelon cake.

In the Cooking Mexican class you’ll learn to cook (and eat) a full Mexican feast in three hours – a fresh and punchy red snapper ceviche to start, and pulled pork for mains with guacamole, chipotle sauce and handmade tortillas.

There’s nothing here that you couldn’t successfully replicate at home, and if you’re definitely not a cook, you can take the Antoni from Queer Eye route and just focus on nailing the guacamole. It’s also a good mix of hands-on-action and demonstrations – on our visit we get the uniquely visceral pleasure of pin-boning a snapper fillet, while other students .
The school has a very slick setup, with Global knives and Smeg appliances at every workstation down the long marble central bench. You’re in a glass cube in the middle of the Cannery in Rosebery and surrounded by plenty of vendors with inspiring ingredients.

Time Out tip: The classes are all BYO, so grab a bottle of wine from nearby artisan bottle shop the Drink Hive to keep the creative juices flowing. (But don’t hit the booze too hard – the knives had just been sharpened when we attended and our teacher’s safety tips couldn’t prevent every injury.)
