Cookery School

Learn by experience! The Waring House recreational cooking classes are suitable for all levels of cooking expertise.  You are invited to 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.

Please look below to see our upcoming classes.

Wednesday & Thursday classes ($95 plus gratuities, plus taxes) feature a sit-down dinner and wine, while Sunday classes ($75 plus gratuities, plus taxes) focus on the lighter side, such as hors d’oeuvres, or quick and easy meals. To reserve a spot in a scheduled class, contact our front desk at 613-476-7492 or 800-621-4956 or email reservations@waringhouse.com.

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.
