Learn how to brew your own beer

September 10, 2019

Wow your guests with self-brewed beer and a slow cooked dish.

Following the success of previous cookery short courses, EIT is now offering a new short course focusing on brewing and slow cooking.

The cooking class is run by Glenn Fulcher, Head of School of EIT’s School of Hospitality and Tourism.

You get to brew your own beer with the help of head brewer John Bradbury from Napier Brewing, make your own hop recipe, ferment and bottle 10 litres of your own beer (or share 20 litres with a mate). While the beer is fermenting, you will learn how to butcher pork and beef for slow cooking over smoke and charcoal, learn the secrets to fantastic marinades and rubs, then spend a day cooking on a charcoal kettle, green egg and in a barrel drop set smoker like the pros.

On the final cook off day, bring the family to join us and eat like kings and queens.

Glenn Fulcher is pleased to be able to offer another high quality short courses. “Our brewing and slow cooking short course is a match made in heaven. Participants can further their brewing and culinary knowledge and keep up-to-date with culinary trends. The skills gained in class will not only benefit their personal and professional application but also take any Christmas barbecue to the next level.”

The dates are Sunday, 3 November (10.30 am – 3 pm), Wednesday, 13, 20, 27 November (6 pm – 8 pm), Sunday, 1 December (10 am – 2 pm, family session with barbecue). Total cost is $295. Places are limited, so register now with Trish McLoughlin, phone 06 974 8000 ext 5033, email pmcloughlin@eit.ac.nz.
