Hands-on Cooking Lessons (GTA)

masselin Jun 9, 2009 06:33 PM


I'm looking for a restaurant or venue (in the GTA) that gives cooking lessons for couples (or groups), as a night-out on the town. I've seen a few cooking schools (Nella Cucina, The Healthy Butcher, Calphalon Culinary School, Bonnie Stern), but oddly enough, none have classes that fit my schedule.

    Great Cooks on Eight offers hands-on classes for couples and groups.

        Does anyone know of somewhere that offers baby food cooking classes?

          I think that you can look this one up on the Whole Foods website in Yorkville.

            Haven't been (this is a baby free zone) but I often see these classes offered at Whole Foods in Yorkville.

            You can try Sprout Right - here's the link - http://www.sproutright.com/mommychef.asp

            I believe she also runs the (free?) workshops at Whole Foods. I've never tried them but she spoke at a mom's group thing that I went to once. Having said that, if you're really talking "baby" i.e. first foods (and since you're looking at a hands-on class anyway), I'd suggest whipping up batches of pureed squash, peas, cauliflower, apples, pears, etc., and freezing in ice cube blocks. Mashed/diced mango, avocado and banana were also early favourites.
