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!

October Cooking Class – First Harvest – 1st Serving @ A Fine Fit Catering Studio Kitchen
Oct 11 @ 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

After a busy summer of weddings and some down time with the family, I am back at it and excited to start the cooking class season with a collection of new dishes to try. The first harvest class will have a very definite northern Ontario flair with locally sourced garden treats and some mouth watering trout. This will be a taste explosion in every course so sign up soon for this exciting evening of food, fun and flavours!

  • Kale salad with white balsamic vinaigrette, golden raisins and toasted almonds
  • Roasted corn chowder with cilantro and lime
  • Seared trout with lemon and herb gremolata, accompanied by blueberry balsamic roasted beets and wild rice pilaf
  • Apple galettes with maple caramel sauce and yogurt cream

Things to Note:

  • Classes can fit 8 comfortably around the island but we do typically have 10 for a class (it just means two people have to sit on the ends of the island – they’ll get special treatment for taking one for the team ;)All classes come with a take-home booklet of recipes and tips from yours truly 🙂
  • I am not licensed to serve alcohol but you are more than welcome to bring your own wine!
  • If you registered but are unable to attend the class, please provide a 48 hr notice otherwise it might not be enough time to find a replacement. In such an event, please understand that I will charge 50% of the cost ($35). Emergencies and extenuating circumstances are always taken into consideration.
  • Registration is not officially confirmed until payment has been received.
  • Tickets are $70 and can be purchased by calling me (708-3509) or clicking below.

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!
