Our In-home Classes
Unfortunately, we have not yet resumed our private in-home cooking classes in the Edmonton area. Hopefully, in the near future.
Our classes are completely customizable to your own needs and abilities. We do all the shopping and arrive at your home ready to inspire you to cook in a non-intimidating and fun practical approach. We buy the ingredients at the local Farmers Markets, organic grocers, and specialty stores.
According to the type of class, we suggest two hours minimum. Anything outside the Edmonton area will be subject to an additional cost.
