Epic Burgers – Surry Hills

Presented by The Cooking School at the Essential Ingredient Surry Hills
About the class

Come to this class very hungry and ready to create 3 epic mouth-watering burger recipes from some of the best burger joints in the world…..we’re talking beef stuffed with cheese and double wagyu patties!

This class is not just about stacking a burger together, you will be making everything from scratch…you will mince your own wagyu beef and rump and learn the importance of fat content required for the perfect pattie. You will be making your own mayonnaise, kimchi, pickles and accompaniments.

Finish the class with a cold craft beer and a stack of your creations to devour.

About The Chef

Jeffrey Vincent Simonetta is an Australian–Italian Chef who has worked under some of Australia’s most influential Chefs.

His family background, thick with Italian culture, influenced the way in which he sees cooking and produce. It taught him that; “To be Italian is to be passionate. It is to intimately taste wine, sauce, and ripe olives, as well as appreciating simplicity and nature, from the fragrance of the spring air, the skill of the sculptor, and the soul of the painter. It means to belong to a gene pool influenced by some of the most interesting cultures in history and translate those onto a plate”.


St Margaret’s Car Park at 417-435 Bourke Street, Surry Hills is a great option for parking with 80 spaces available and a 5-minute walk from the Cooking School. Casual parking rates after 5pm are $4/hour.
