CLASSES HAVE STARTED AGAIN!
2020 brought the all too familiar pandemic that we just can’t seem to OFFICIALLY get out of. We were on lockdowns, masked, kept away from family and friends, and the list goes on. That pandemic leaked into 2021 and although summertime seems to have brought us a little bit more freedom, we still have restrictions on eating out in the ways we used to. So, let’s get back on some cooking classes as that cold weather starts to hit and we are all staying home a little bit more!
Oh, and why am I talking about cold weather? Because our family was not exempt from all the changes that occurred last year. I am back in Ontario, moved in with my elderly mom and taking care of her and my dad who is currently on a waiting list for Long Term Care housing. We have a little place in Mexico still that we will try and get back to when we can. But I’ll be here most of the winter. I’m going to need you all to survive!!!
If you didn’t know, I started offering cooking classes at the start of 2021. My most popular class by far was pierogies! And why not? Have you seen this article in the Globe & Mail that talks about how all of us expats just HAD to get our pierogi fill in no matter where we lived? Take a quick read. The article is right here. I know you can get pierogies up here more easily, but let’s face it, anything that comes from your kitchen is going to be better!
But there’s much more for you to try! I now have pie making, fresh pasta making, and my newest offering, PAD THAI! Aren’t you tired of eating the same old meals every week? Why not join a class or make your own group? Or take the pie making class and then spend a snow day making pies and freezing so you never need to run out to the store for one when you need it.
You will enjoy my live interactive cooking classes in the comfort of your kitchen. You will get step-by-step coaching, cooking tips, and be able to ask all the questions you want. I can even advise you what local ingredients to use as substitutes in case certain ingredients aren’t available to you.
Classes are kept small so that I can guide each student step by step the same way you would be in an actual class environment. This also gives everyone time to ask questions, and for me to provide suggestions and encouragement along the way.
