Cooking Classes in Edmonton
At Get Cooking we work with the best and freshest ingredients available. Because we focus on using ingredients of the highest quality, we finalize each class menu at the last minute, after the shopping’s been done! To see your Menu du Jour go to our Blackboard the day before your class.
We offer Scheduled Classes as well as Private Group Bookings! For private bookings take a look at the Classes Descriptions below and choose the class that appeals most to you: we can accommodate groups of up to 9 students at a time.
Our 2013 Spring & Summer Schedule is now online, with classes scheduled up until the end of July. If there is a class that you’re interested in, but it’s fully booked, send us an email so that we can add you to our Waiting List. And if there’s enough demand we’ll try to add an additional class.

Scheduled classes at Get Cooking cost $115 per person ($105 per person for Vegetarian) plus GST, although occasionally we charge a little more for a class if the cost of ingredients is higher than usual, or for an All Day (6 hour plus) class. The fee includes 4 hours or more of professional instruction in Kathryn’s purpose-built gourmet kitchen, including a substantial meal as you taste all of the dishes that we have made. And while you eat, you’ll get to sample wines selected by the sommeliers at Vines, Riverbend Wine Merchants, to match the menu for your class. You’ll take home printed copies of all the recipes that we make, as well as a resource list to help you find the ingredients that we use. And finally, once you’re at home trying those recipes by yourself, you can contact Kathryn any time for ongoing advice as you Get Cooking on your own.
For Group Bookings please contact Kathryn for a quote based on the number of participants.
