Due to my lifelong passion for cooking, we are very happy to offer cooking classes here at the farm. We plan to have a whole range of interesting and useful classes. We are most fortunate here on Vancouver Island to have many great chefs who are willing to share their skills.
To register for a class please call 250-743-9019.
Full amount of payment must be made in advance to reserve a place in the class. If you are unable to attend a class, please notify us 72 hours prior. You are also welcome to send a friend in your place. Otherwise the payment is non-refundable.
