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!

Cost

Cost is $70.00 per person, HST and gratuity included.  Once payment is made, your seat is booked in the class!

Please note: A gift certificate, regardless of value, can be used toward a class! (I.e. $65 purchased gift certificates are good with the 2019 price structure!)
