Lou and Ant Bentley established the Akaroa Cooking School in 2009, after years of balancing corporate lives with their passion for food, and squeezing in training at the Chiang Mai Cookery School and the New Zealand School of Food and Wine. They wanted to teach people how to get back to basics - growing their own food where possible, but certainly knowing where it came from and how best to prepare and cook it.
They live with their two children one bay around from Akaroa, and grow all their own herbs, salad greens and veges for the school.
