December Classes

Time to change things up this Christmas holiday with an alternative menu to replace that worn-out turkey recipe. The BFK has put together a delicious meal which will include a freshly glazed honey ham and a sweet mascarpone cheesecake! 

Turkey is renowned worldwide for its food scene. In this Lunch ‘N Learn we will be making a spinach, pepper, and feta pide - a Turkish flatbread with a garlic yogurt dip; Sultan’s Delight - a traditional lamb stew served on eggplant puree and lastly Laz Boregi, and finally a layered phyllo pastry dessert filled with sweet custard. 

A delightful brunch that uses up all those holiday leftovers. We will start off with a soup made from your left over mashed potatoes. Then, you will learn how to create a stuffing waffle with turkey and a savoury beer gravy topped with a poached egg. Finish things off with a light raspberry sorbet with cranberry apple compote. ​

January Classes

Take a trip to Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and beyond as our chef instructors get you up to speed on the authentic flavours of Southeast Asia. You’ll learn how Southeast Asian cuisine manages to strike that perfect balance of sweet, salty and spicy and how ingredients like peanuts, cardamom, ginger and garlic come together in classic dishes like chicken skewers, Vietnamese subs and tasty pineapple fritters. 

The holidays are over and we can help you stick to your New Year’s eating resolutions with a healthy lunch menu full of the delicious fresh food your body is craving. With a crunchy kale salad, warming chicken lentil soup served with homemade bread and a refreshing fruit and yogurt parfait for dessert, this class will help you start 2018 on the right foot. 

Eastern Europe’s rich history is evident in its food; dishes that represent warmth and comfort to many Canadians thanks to savoury flavours like thyme, parsley and garlic. Our chef instructor will whip up iconic European cabbage rolls, a hearty stuffed pork loin and a delicious chocolate torte for dessert. 

February Classes

Cuba is known for its rum, its cigars and its classic Caribbean cuisine. With this class you’ll be introduced to Cuba’s national dish, Ropa Vieja — shredded beef in a rich tomato sauce with olives and pimentos. While we’re in the island state of mind, our chef instructors will also prepare tostones (twice-fried plantain slices) with a fresh mango avocado salad and a pumpkin flan for dessert.

It’s true — the way to your love’s heart is often through their stomach and there’s no better way to spoil your sweetie than to prepare a romantic Valentine’s Day brunch. Our chef instructors will share some French techniques to help you take your brunch game to the next level, with dishes like a heavenly crepes suzette with prosciutto, fresh fruit and cheese and a classic quiche Lorraine all on the menu. 

After a long day of skiing, nothing beats coming home to a belly-warming meal. Our chef instructors will introduce you to hearty après ski meals drawing from French and Swiss alpine traditions. Tuck into our slow cooker beef bourguignon, a rostizza (a pizza with a Swiss rosti crust) with Swiss cheese and speck bacon and warm apple hand pies for dessert.

March Classes 

Indian flavours can be complex — get to know your way around an Indian spice box with this boldly flavoured Lunch ‘n’ Learn. Learn how to use ingredients like garam masala, curry leaves, coriander and tumeric to create Indian classics like lamb rogan josh curry, homemade naan bread and an authentic Indian rice pudding for dessert. 

Because of its location right in between Eastern and Western Europe, Austria is a melting pot of different cultures, which is reflected in the country’s unique cuisine. In this class our chef instructor will recreate the menu of a typical Viennese café, teaching you all about Viennese sausage, cheese, and chocolate while sharing recipes for an onion and sausage quiche and a classic Wiener Schnitzel. 

Most of us know beef wellington — that classic dish consisting of beef carefully wrapped in puff pastry — but did you know that beef isn’t the only filling worthy of the wellington treatment? Join us in exploring the world of wellingtons beyond the classic beef. We’ll look at pork and prosciutto wellingtons as well as a meatless version with Portobello mushroom and brie.
