Essential Ingredient Christmas Capers

Come and celebrate Xmas with us

About this Event

You’re invited to Christmas Capers, our annual late-night festive shopping experience.

We’ve been holding Christmas Capers for as long as we can remember. It’s our way of saying thank you for your ongoing support of our store and our staff. And enjoying some Christmas cheer together.

Christmas Capers is your chance to stock up on all the items you’ll need for Christmas entertaining and also buy food, kitchen and dining-inspired gifts for food-loving friends. We come to the party with an across the board 10 per cent discount. (With only a very few lines exempt.)

A roll-call of beloved suppliers will be here to say hi and showcase their wares, we’ll enjoy a bite to eat and the bar will be selling festive cocktails.

In order that we remain covid-safe, we ask you to register your shopping start time with us. We’ll monitor shopper numbers throughout the night to ensure we stay under our authorised numbers cap.


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.
