Edible Gifts for Christmas

Saturday November 24th


I love to give (and to receive) a home-made gift of food at Christmas, it’s something that I’ve done for many years now. To add a little ‘spice’ to these edible gifts we’ll create delicious ‘tastes from around the world’!  We’ll start off with Italian Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons (melt-in-your-mouth), Irish Baileys and Milk Chocolate Fudge, Italian Double Dark Chocolate Almond Biscotti and finally European Peppermint Cream Truffles.  Enjoy a steaming cup of mulled apple cider and take home your edible gifts! 


Hors D’oeuvres for the Christmas Season.

Saturday December 1st

11.00-1.30 Lunch

Everyone needs a few new appetizers to surprise and delight family and friends’ taste buds . Expand your repertoire…the same old, same old needs some spice!!!  We’ll make 4 Christmas appetizers, I’ve selected my favourite appetizers from the list above:  Roasted Chicken, Monterrey Jack Cheese, Jalapeno Tortillas (loads of flavour in every bite), Creole Crab Cakes with Remoulade Mayonnaise Dipping Sauce (yum), Phyllo Baked Brie & Local Maple Syrup with Cranberry Chutney (delicious) and Asian Won Ton Wraps with Soya Ginger Dipping Sauce (a flavour explosion in the mouth).  Savour the appetizers for lunch with a steaming cup of mulled apple cider.

Hungry yet?  Come on out to a single class or the entire series (no pressure at all), we’d love to have you join us!


If you can’t make it on Saturday, just gather up 4-6 friends or family and create your own class…as simple as that!

Time: We’ll start at 11am, finishing by about 2pm.  


$45 (plus HST)/class ($40/class for the full series)

Includes:  2 1/2 - 3 hours of hands-on cooking, followed by a delicious 5+ course gourmet meal made by your hands and recipes to take home and enjoy!
