Cookery School

Beginning at Waring House in 2001, the classes have welcomed thousands of participants to the pleasures of expanding culinary skills.

Check exotic ports and places you have always wanted to visit and celebrate regional cuisine including Prince Edward County’s own bounty of local foods. The destination changes every week. The class is a hands-on experience with participants' numbers limited to enhance the experience.

Chef Correa is a culinary artist who is well-traveled and who paints a picture for you of the worlds palette as well as helping you explore basic culinary skills and knowledge. In-season classes include a visit to our Waring House herb and vegetable garden and participants are encouraged to visit farm stands located in the immediate vicinity of the Inn. 

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 were picked that day at farms just down the road from the cookery school, or from our Waring House garden.

Thursday Evening and Sunday morning classes are $130, plus gratuity and HST. Class price includes a Waring House apron, cooking instructions package, the meal that you prepare & a glass of local red or white wine.

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 you can package it and take it home to enjoy later.

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