Culinary Getaway in Ontario?

The Boss Nov 25, 2007 10:41 AM

I am looking for a cooking holiday/getaway somewhere in the province or adjoining regions. Can anyone make a recommendation?
If possible, a cooking school with onsite accommodation would be great!
Thank much!

    Check out the Niagara (Ontario) region. There are a couple of very good cooking schools - one is The Good Earth and the other is at Strewn Winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake. They are both in the heart of the Niagara wine region, so there is lots to explore and taste, such as theatre - The Shaw Festival - and many wineries, restaurants and the countryside. Neither Good Earth or Strewn have accommodations on-site, as far as I know, but there are many terrific inns, B&Bs, hotels, cottages for rent in the area.

        I think the Waring House in Prince Edward County offers a cooking school getaway. That would be my choice over Niagara.

          The Waring House Inn looks fabulous. Cooking school with onsite accommodation --

          Back in the Niagara area, there's also the Wine Country Cooking School, which offers culinary weekend packages including accommodation at one of the boutique hotels in NOTL..
