Creating a meal from scratch is both challenging and delicious, much like playing "Stairway to Heaven" on a clarinet made out of a candy cane. Master meal melding with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a three-hour cooking class at Ontario College of Health and Technology in Stoney Creek (a $75 value).
Gourmands and greenhorns alike receive hands-on cooking instruction at the shoulder of an accomplished chef at Ontario College of Health and Technology. An ever-rotating array of available culinary courses spans the globe and the table, enabling refinement of sautéing skills or crudités, as circumstances demand. Learn how to break sautéing records at the stovetop during the 20 Minute Dinners class, or opt for Amazing Adventures in Raw Foods, where raw, vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free ingredients take on new culinary dimensions. The Couples Cooking Class evokes the intimacy of preparing a meal with another special person or docile hand puppet, and the four-course dinner prep in Cooking Like a Pro aims to impress dinner guests of all spectrums. Classes focusing on such varied topics as appetizers, sauces, dessert, and the use of spices ensure most every food enthusiast can have his cake and teach it to wash the dishes too. As part of this offer, participants also get a choice between a complimentary apron or a $20 discount off another cooking class at Ontario College of Health and Technology.
Ontario College of Health & Technology
Ontario College of Health & Technology educates its students to herald a healthier and safer tomorrow. Through programs that focus on disciplines as diverse as massage therapy and private investigation, the private career college readies pupils for long-term success in their chosen field. Yet the school expands its scope beyond career tracks, offering the casual learner an arsenal of new skills. The culinary department, for example, takes two forms: by day, Red Seal–certified cooking instructors train full-time students to become chefs in restaurants and hotels, but by night, they oversee proteges' first steps into the kitchen or second steps back into the kitchen after realizing they left their headlights on. In comprehensive workshops, students learn to properly sauté, simmer, and bake dishes so that they can treat their family to a nice meal or throw a fitting party for a foodie friend.
