What to Expect: Prepare to experience our high-energy, hands-on cooking class for children, adapted for adults! Led by our amazing Chef team, come explore some great new recipes, professional instruction and a sit-down meal – prepared entirely by YOU.

Join Chef Katherine as we tour the unexpected treasure trove of wild foods at the Western Fair District, and learn about Urban Foraging and safely identifying and cooking with native and invasive plant species found in your own backyard and community. The class will start with a walking tour and forage of edible species on the Western Fair grounds, and then head into our teaching kitchen to process various wild foods and make a meal based around our forage. We will make some of the foods we collected into preserves to take home to enjoy the seasonality of these special foods all year long.

Ages: 19+ Growing Chefs! Ontario holds a valid catering licence, meaning we are a fully licensed space during private events. We work with various Ontario companies to bring you the tastiest beverages our region has to offer, further supporting our mission to #supportlocal. A cash bar will be available, accepting cash, credit and debit cards.

Pricing: Monthly Adult Cooking Class tickets are $100 per person.

What your ticket includes:
2 and a half-hour high-energy, interactive cooking class, a sit-down meal and a donation which helps fund two children to participate in our public programming! A tax receipt for 50% of your class fee is available for each ticket purchased. One price, twice the impact!

Date & Time:
Wednesday, August 3 from 6:00 to 8:30PM – Wild Foraging

Wild Foraging Adult Cooking Class will be taking place in our NEW Food Education Centre at The Grove at the Western Fair District at 900 King St. This space offers the perfect opportunity to learn all about Urban Foraging while exploring the edible native and invasive plant species found in the Western Fair District’s Food Forests.

Food Allergies:
Don’t let a dietary concern prevent you from participating in our classes! Our Chef team is highly experienced in managing dietary requirements, so please reach out to us to discuss. Contact [email protected] with any specific concerns, and we’ll do our best to make the appropriate accommodations.

Masking and Vaccination:
Growing Chefs! continues to work closely with Public Health as we begin to transition away from COVID-19 related health and safety protocols for our programming and events. We strongly recommend vaccinations and masking as tools to minimize the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to require masks be worn during food preparation until further notice.

Refund or cancellation requests must be communicated directly to Emily at [email protected]ca a minimum of 7 days prior to class. These classes are extremely popular and fill quickly, and we will open your spot to our waiting list. If cancelled with less than 7 days notice, you will be given the option to switch your ticket to a future class (if spots are available) or be provided a tax receipt for the remaining donation amount, with our thanks.
