Cooking classes - Loblaws

  • r

Has anyone taken any of the cooking classes that some of the different Loblaws' Superstores offer? My husband wanted to purchase me classes from George Brown, but I don't want to make a 40 hour commitment...because life is too crazy as it is, and they'll come to $300-$400 with taxes.

I was looking into the Loblaws ones as an alternative, and the different options really good, conviniently located & I can mix and match different classes that only run about $30 each. The teachers are all pretty renouned, and there's even an Italian one with one of the hosts of Canadian Living Cooks!

Any feedback from anyone's who's heard anything about them or know's anyone who's taken one would be very appreciated. Many thanks....I'm really looking forward to potentially broadening my culinary horizons if possible!

  1. I haven't tried the classes, but I stumbled on this website while searching for a restaurant. The classes look very interesting, wish I lived in Toronto :( click on the link below.


    1. I haven't done them but a friend has and his complaint was that you just sit and watch, he would have preferred hands on. I have recently signed my husband up for a class at which I saw on here. He is taking it on Jan 24th so will let you know how it turned out. I talked to Deb who runs it and she sounds great.

      1. I have taken the cooking classes at the Loblaws downtown and also some in the west end. There are two types of classes: either hands on or demostration only. I suggest the hands-on. I have done a sushi class which is good and another for entertaining dinner ideas. Would love to do a Thai one but they always book up fast.
        Also you should note that if you can get 12 people together then most Loblaws will allow you to have private classes on the date/time of choice.
