Fisher & Paykel Appliances  announces the opening of the 10th school under its Cooking School Alliance programme.

Bottega Rotolo Victoria has opened its brand new cooking school, To the Plate under the watchful eyes of fine dining and all-things-Italian loving Sarah and Stefano Angelini. Bottega Rotolo VIC joins its sisters Bottega Rotolo South Australia and Bottega Rotolo Tasmania, along with seven other of Australia’s finest cooking schools in the Fisher & Paykel Cooking School Alliance.

Sarah and Stefano opened Bottega Rotolo, a fine food and gourmet ingredient store located in the historic Cremorne neighbourhood of Richmond, back in 2010. To the Plate was born out of a desire to add a Melbournian twist to traditional Italian cooking in a fun, fresh and fabulous learning environment.

According to Sarah, Melbourne’s top chefs will guide enthusiastic participants through an adventurous culinary experience in a beautiful, relaxing and warm environment wherein they can develop their cooking skills while also having fun.

To The Plate is equipped with all the latest Fisher & Paykel appliances including the innovative CoolDrawer with its five temperature settings, the sturdy and reliable 76cm Pyrolytic Double Oven as well as the 60cm Double DishDrawer that makes cleaning up after class a breeze.

Brand Manager for Fisher & Paykel Australia, Kara May welcomed Bottega Rotolo VIC into the Fisher & Paykel Cooking School Alliance.

The Fisher & Paykel Cooking School Alliance aims to support local cooking schools while allowing guests to test drive Fisher & Paykel’s latest range of cooking appliances. Through the cooking school alliances, Fisher & Paykel is able to directly engage with more than 40,000 people each year.

Describing the cooking school alliance programme as a very deliberate and targeted strategy, Kara May explained that guests at the cooking schools have a natural interest in cooking, and therefore an interest in cooking and kitchen appliances, enabling Fisher & Paykel to reach an engaged and involved audience.
