Cookery School

Learn by experience! The Waring House recreational cooking classes are suitable for all levels of cooking expertise.  Expand your culinary repertoire, and learn new skills and chef techniques.

Each class features a particular culinary subject, food type, region, ingredient or theme.  Many of our classes feature fresh, local ingredients — some picked that day at farms just down the road from the cookery school, or from our own Waring House garden.

Wednesday Evening and Sunday morning classes are $109.61, including gratuity and HST.

Evening classes start at 5:30 PM, and feature a sit-down dinner, while 10:30 AM Sunday classes offer nibbling as you prepare the meal, and then package it and take it home to enjoy for lunch or dinner.

Coming from out of town? We have great cookery school packages that include accommodation and dining.

Cookery classes can be a great team building exercise or a way to spend some time with a group of friends, relatives or business associates. We offer private classes for groups of 6 or more. For information on booking a private cooking class for your group, email our sales office.


As part of our comprehensive COVID protocols, classes will be limited to 4 guests.  Larger groups may be considered if all participants are in the same social bubble. Participants are required to wear a mask while in the kitchen or dining area.  The mask can be removed while dining.
