$110 for a Cooking Class with Dinner ($250 Value)

Classes of up to 14 people learn about sausage recipes and practice making their own gourmet links. The instructors then teach pupils how to trim, cure, and juggle salmon before demonstrating techniques to cook the fillets. Finally, participants learn how to buy, trim, and braise two different cuts. After class, students sit down for a communal-style dinner, during which they fuel up on succulent meat and partake in a Q&A session with the butcher, the chef, and the chef's hat.

Two Chefs and a Table

Owners Karl Gregg and Allan Bosomworth channel their sundry culinary interests into Two Chefs and a Table, a French-cuisine-inspired bistro with a robust catering wing and a focus on delightful wines. Their laid-back eatery immerses diners in artful food preparation at the chef's table, where cooks prepare meals in the open to assuage the anxieties of claustrophobic cheeses.

The menu and its carefully selected complementary wines change with the season, variously sating appetites with fresh salmon, British Columbia boar, and a slew of other locally sourced ingredients. Occasional Wine Drinker dinners match themed five-course meals with ideal wines as patrons mingle in merriment. For special events and social gatherings, the catering service supplies appetizers and plated cuisine.

The groupon wine pairing course didn't work out but were refunded and a free brunch offered. The brunch was spectacular and have to say just perfect. Great friendly service too. We will go back and recommend.
