Hey there,

I want to learn and explore the world of food in Calgary. I thought that the best way to do this would be through food classes. Does anyone know of any where in calgary that gives great cooking lessons?

      Good suggestions above. I have taken classes with Cookbooks Co and Chinook Learning Services in the past. Chinook's are cheaper but basic and take place in local high schools. CB Co has a LOT of selection but they're more expensive and sometimes not worth the money, in my opinion. 2 out of the 4 classes I've taken were not worth $90. I also took an Herbs and Spices course at SAIT. It was only for one evening and again, very basic but I learned a few things.

      I'd also add Knifewear in Inglewood to the list. Not a cooking class, per se, but if you're want to learn how to properly cut food or sharpen knives, check them out. I found their Cut Like a Chef class super useful.
