Cooking Classes

Click here for Corporate Workshop Information

My cooking classes aim to make the art of cooking gourmet accessible to all.  I offer a variety of classes open to the public on a monthly basis, focusing on a specific dietary or ethnic theme.  In the summer, my focus moves to our fabulous local food scene as I teach how to “eat with the season” and use what comes out of the garden in creative and delicious ways.  In the process, I am happy to promote local producers of not only meat, cheese and produce but also our local artisans who make beautiful pottery which you will be eating and drinking out of during the course of your evening.

Custom classes are also available!  Let me work with you to find a perfect menu for your group.  Just gather at least six friends or colleagues, and together we will find a perfect menu for your group.  Birthday parties, corporate team-building events, and even bachelorette parties have been part of my cooking class history.

All classes will be located in my studio teaching kitchen at 144 Evans St. (on the corner of John and Golf Links, off Anten St.)

To inquire about booking a class or finding out when the next class is being held, check below, drop me a note or give me a shout (708-3509) and be sure to sign up for my newsletter below. Each month I try to send out details of classes being offered – as well as recipes and great tips for cooking!

Eat with the Seasons 1: Vibrant Vegan @ A Fine Fit Catering Studio Kitchen | Thunder Bay | Ontario | Canada

Welcome to the first installment of my Eat with the Seasons Series! I’m so excited to start us out this season with a purely vegan selection, borrowing from different cultures, from the exotic Thai salad wraps to Indian Tikka masala and homemade naan bread. This month will feature fresh rhubarb, Veg-e-tate Market Garden microgreens and shoots, tomatoes and herbs from DeBruin’s greenhouse and Brule Creek stone ground flour. If you are a vegan, admire and believe in eating a more plant-based diet but don’t know where to start, or just curious, this class is for you!

Menu

  • Thai salad wraps with fresh market shoots and dipping medley
  • Falafel tacos with red cabbage and new rhubarb slaw
  • Tikka masala bowls with coconut curry and roasted cashews and fresh made naan
  • Rhubarb strawberry galettes with Prime sorbetto

Hi Rhonda! I just wanted to pop by and let you know how great your recipes are and how often we enjoy the little cookbooks that you give out at the dinners. The Lemon thyme chicken is one of our favorites and I made it again tonight!
