I love getting in a room with like-minded people to eat, cook, learn and enjoy. I run restaurant events, food tours and cooking classes – I’d love to see you at an upcoming event!
Signature Dish Series
Exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences in top restaurants.
My new event series is a way to share my access to top restaurants and chefs with you. Participants will have unique experiences in great restaurants, including deep engagement with leading chefs. By focusing on a signature dish, we give the chef an opportunity to shine, to share techniques, tips and stories. Attendees will improve as cooks and become more informed diners, gaining cooking insights and learning ingredient backstories.
I’ve been working with great excitement on this concept and I’m thrilled to bring it to fruition.
This is what’s included:
– exclusive behind-the-scenes access to a top restaurant for you and just 9 other people
– you visit a restaurant when it’s closed to the public – not just the restaurant, but the kitchen!
– you spend time with the chef and watch them cook a signature dish, learning their secrets, tips and techniques
– you eat the signature dish
– you ask any questions you like
– you enjoy snacks and matched wine as you watch and learn
– you go home with the recipe for the chef’s signature dish, plus a key ingredient for that dish

Restaurant Club is a great night out in a top restaurant based around a theme – it might be an ingredient (truffles! indigenous spices!) or a cuisine (Turkish food for entertaining) or Thermomix (my favourite cooking machine!). These events are always fun, educational and delicious!
See more about Restaurant Club, including previous events, here.
Join me to cook up a storm. I use a Thermomix in my classes, as well as sharing lots of tips, ingredient info and stories. My cooking classes are fun, engaging and include tastings and recipes to take home. Got questions? I'll answer them!
I always share ideas for making everyday meals a little bit special, and I'm all about planning tips to make hosting guests easy, achievable and sweat-free!
People always leave excited, inspired and ready to cook.
Of course, I can't be everywhere all the time, so my cooking videos are the 24-7 solution to that. My online recipe library is just like watching me at a cooking class. DANIVALENT.COM members have access to my complete recipe library plus new content every week. Join us!
