About the BBQ School

BBQ School was founded in 2004 by internationally trained chef and passionate foodie Ben Farley who identified that while many Aussies were really into cooking on the BBQ, most only had one or two recipes they knew how to cook really well.

Showing keen BBQ’ers how to prepare and confidently cook a collection of simple, effective and tasty recipes was the best way forward and so in 2004 Ben turned his back on career in Sydney and London high profile restaurants (Bilson’s in Sydney and Mirabelle in Mayfair, London) and founded BBQ School.

In our classes we assume no knowledge, but have found that the more a student knows about BBQ cooking, the more they learn from our experienced chef presenters.

To date around 90,000 people have been taught through the BBQ School.

We now operate in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Hunter Valley and each year the School continues to grow in response to people who wish to cook with more flair when entertaining.
