No matter the menu, the most important part of any great meal is fun.

So join the party in our cooking clases 

Great cooking isn't about recipes—it's about techniques. In our classes you'll work together with other students in a fun, hands-on environment led by our professional chef instructors. You will learn the most important thing about cooking and that is the tasting and adjusting of a recipe.

We believe that every recipe is mearly a guide due to the variability of ingredients. For example the taste of a tomato grown in the Mediteranean and one grown in Ontario is so different that a recipe developed in Italy needs to be adjusted at the end. There is a method and a skill to this very important stage of cooking and this is what you will learn how to do in our classes. 


  • Learn fundamental skills for a lifetime of great cooking
  • Work side-by-side with other students to prepare one of the dishes on the menu
  • Interact with classmates and the instructor for a rich learning experience
  • Classes are 2 to 2 1/2 hours, unless otherwise noted
  • Each student enjoys a generous taste of every dish at the end of the class at a communial table with a glass of wine
  • Held in our professional catering kitchen, each class is led by an experienced chef instructor
  • A handout of the recipes in included 
  • Students receive a 10% discount coupon to use the week after the class at our booth in the St. Lawrence Farmer's Market where you can purchase our prepared hors d'oeuvres, dinners and more...
