Looking for a kitchen (with ovens) to rent

Every year I host a cookie exchange near Christmas time. My friends and I discussed finding a place where we could all bake together and sit down afterwards to enjoy the treats.

Does anyone know where I could start looking?

Thanks in advance.

    Not sure if they would offer that specifically but Dish does private classes, maybe they can do private rental as well? http://dishcookingstudio.com/school-c...

      Actually check with the Kitchen at the St Lawrence Market. It is stocked with Miele appliances.

      I had a brunch party there last year and the space is really amazing. Gabrielle was really lovely to deal with as well.

        Can I ask what the cost for renting this space as you did would be? (Approx)

          Good question, I recall it being really reasonable (like $300?) but I rented it 2 years ago and I know they had been considering raising the prices. I checked the website but it doesn't say. I know there is a big difference in price between day and night rentals.

        You could contact the Brickworks about renting out the GE Cafe kitchen there

          The Depaneur rents out its kitchen - not sure how many ovens there are though.
