Any Good Cooking Classes in Calgary?

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?

      Chinook Learning

      SAIT (not professional

      Calgary Food Tours (not necesarily cooking but a great way to explore - The "Tootles" are awesome!

      International Ave (17th SE) Bus Tour - Around the World in 35 blocks. A great bargain and so fun!

      Choklat - Tour of their shop, learning all about chocolate

      Have fun!

      1. 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.

        1. Thanks Guys. I will definitely check them out. This was a lot of help!
