Marcellina Glenunga hosts cooking classes on the last  Saturday of every month

Marcellina Cooking Academy

While bespoke academy events will continue at other locations, the regular Marcellina Cooking Academy classes will be based at the Glenunga store.

The regular classes are designed to be entertaining, enjoyable and enlightening. It should inform and empower people to be able to make excellent quality authentic pizza to a traditional recipe and have fun in the process.

All academy initiatives are built on a strong tradition of authenticity and hospitality that enriches people’s lives. As such, a key part of the lesson is the fellowship of the meal at the end of each class. Food is prepared to be shared.

The Marcellina Cooking Academy classes are conducted on a regular ongoing basis, held at Glenunga every last Saturday in the month.


Positions are limited to just 30 spots per month so book early.
