Public Cooking Classes

Calgary Hands-On

Hands-On

There’s no better way to learn than getting into the action. In our hands-on classes, you will learn new methods and recipes by making them yourself. Our chef instructors guide the way, answering questions and assisting you as needed. Since no cooking class is complete without something to eat, we will provide a meal and beverages – all matched to the class’s theme.

Calgary Lunch 'N Learn Classes

Lunch 'N Learn

There’s no better way to learn than getting into the action. In our hands-on classes, you will learn new methods and recipes by making them yourself. Our chef instructors guide the way, answering questions and assisting you as needed. Since no cooking class is complete without something to eat, we will provide a meal and beverages – all matched to the class’s theme.

Calgary Chef's Table Class

Chef's Table

For a more intimate lesson that dives more deeply into its subject, we offer Chef’s Table classes. Over a six-course meal – or sometimes more – our chef instructors share recipes, along with their best tips and advice learned from years of experience. Like dinner at a chef’s table in a restaurant, you will be well fed, entertained and leave ready to try some new recipes at your own table.

Calgary Kids Camps

Kids Camps

Let your kid explore their inner chef with our summer and PD day cooking camps. Our chef instructors and home economists explore the basics of food preparation, cooking techniques and food safety with these hands-on classes. Kids will create dishes from scratch and get to enjoy the tasty results for lunch, plus extra to take home. We’ll supply them with the recipes so they can make what they created again at home.

South Health Campus

South Health Campus

Live in south Calgary? Come to the South Health Campus Wellness Kitchen! Our chef instructors teach demonstration style evening classes about once a month. These one-hour weekday classes include a light meal, a demonstration lesson on how to make the dishes you are served, and the corresponding recipe package. 

Private Programs

Calgary Private Events

Private Events

If you can dream it, we can do it! Our private events range from corporate team building, receptions and presentations, to larger events. Choose from the array of class packages we've created or share your ideas with us and we will make it happen. Events are hosted in our beautiful modern facility in Calgary's Garrison Green neighbourhood, just off Crowchild Trail and 50th avenue at ATCO Park. The Calgary learning centre features top-of-the-line appliances and a video display system designed specifically for cooking classes. 

Kids Birthday Party

Kids Birthday Parties

Give the gift of a great party that sends kids home with new cooking skills. With our cooking parties, the fun is hands on. Everyone will get involved in making something delicious, like fresh pasta dough or all the fixings for a Mexican feast. We have a variety of themes to choose from, each designed with kids in mind. 

Calgary School Program

Kids Can Cook School Program

Basic cooking skills are an important building block for kids. Learning about food, kitchen safety and how to cook will help them now and in the future.

Through our Kids Can Cook School Program, our chef instructors teach basic cooking skills in our kitchen with hands-on activities tied to the school curriculum. Kids learn how to prepare, cook and taste food and then all eat together as a group. At the same time, teachers will get tools and resources they can use to weave healthy living activities into lessons once back at school.
