Invite a friend

The final day is time for you to show off a little – invite a friend or family member to come along as you shadow Bruno & Emma in the main kitchen to cook a tasting menu for your guest. This is a real taste of what it’s like to work as part of the Northcote kitchen brigade!

As always Bruno and Emma will be close by as you slice, dice, cook and plate a stunning tasting menu to present to your lucky guest at The Chef’s Table.

Cocktail tasting

Join our barman for a demonstration of Northcote’s most popular cocktails, seasonal favourites and drinks which reflect some of the dishes you’ll make, like the Black Forest Gateaux cocktail!

Watch the bar team mix the perfect Espresso Martini, King’s Ginger and some bespoke cocktails based on your likes. Don’t forget the tasting! The most important part is trying them all and choosing your favourite.
