Why go out for a meal when you can just make it yourself?
Well, for one, you may not know how to prepare foie gras or bake the perfect loaf of gluten-free bread. Plus, depending on how ambitious your meal becomes, the preparation and clean-up may be a little too daunting for someone who just wants a nice dinner.
Luckily for us, ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen is here to teach us how to make a gourmet meal (handling the prep and clean-up, of course), while generously pouring the wine and cocktails for a fun night out.
The lunch ‘n learn demonstration is a noon-hour weekday class that shows you how to make the dishes you are served for only $20. Meals are a minimum of three courses and range from Southern comfort food to gluten-free to Caribbean fare, and more.
Weekend classes are either demonstration-only (called a “Chef’s Table” event – they cook; you watch and eat) or demonstration and hands-on, in which you get to try your hand at cooking the meal. Starting at $65 per person, these classes are limited to 16 people and are great for a date or group of friends.
And if you ever want to try what you’ve learned at home, ATCO sells a series of cookbooks written for the at-home chef. The recipes are developed by the in-house culinary team and tested until perfection. The next cookbook will be a Holiday Collection released on Oct. 1, 2013.
