So­phie Zalokar, one of Western Aus­tralia’s best-known cooks, shares her pas­sion for food at For­agers, a cook­ing school and din­ing room based on a farm near Pem­ber­ton. So­phie, who trained at the Pheas­ant Farm Res­tau­rant in South Aus­tralia with Mag­gie Beer, now passes on her skills on top­ics from bread­mak­ing to soups and Christ­mas cook­ing. One- and two-day work­shops on top­ics such as pre­serv­ing or cheese­mak­ing can also be ar­ranged for groups. Din­ners, with themes such as Sea­sonal, Woodf ired or Lo­cal Pro­duce, are held on most Fri­days and Satur­days. For those look­ing to en­joy a week­end away, the farm, which So­phie runs with hus­band Chris, has a range of ac­com­mo­da­tion, in­clud­ing three stu­dios, a three-bed­room farm­house and three lux­ury eco-chalets. $85.
