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.  As host, you will receive half price off your own ticket!  Birthday parties, corporate team-building events, and even bachelorette parties have been part of our cooking class history.

All classes will be located in my newly renovated 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, 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 $65.00 per person, HST and gratuity included.  Once payment is made, your seat is booked in the class.

Gluten-Free Gourmet @ A Fine Fit Catering Studio Kitchen
Mar 9 @ 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

A Fine Fit Catering has always prided itself on being a perfect “fit” for every dietary need – including, of course, gluten-free diets. Although there are a ton of amazing gluten-free recipes around, it never hurts to have just a few more on hand. Especially if you have a gluten-free member in the family or you yourself are gluten-free. So bring a friend and come out to a fun evening of cooking, learning, and, of course, indulging on some delicious gluten-free gourmet dishes!

Menu

  • Rice Wraps with dipping sauce medley
  • Quinoa tabouli salad
  • Corn and roasted red pepper chowder with cilantro and lime
  • Salmon en papilotte with julienne vegetables and butternut squash risotto
  • Tropical pavlova with coconut cream and fruits or warm chocolate donut with coconut cream
