Top chef

Cooking classes

Want to be a ‘top chef’ in your own home?

All it takes is a handful of good, fresh ingredients and a willingness to explore your senses. But to get you started, there are plenty of cooking classes around town ready to help you with your culinary adventures. Neatfreakz Kitchens has been offering classes for the past four years, bringing in chefs from all over the country, including Anthony Sedlak from the Food Network’s popular show The Main.

Sales clerk Rebecca Clark has taken in a few classes at the Abbotsford store’s kitchen, which can hold up to 23 people.

“It’s a nice night out,” she says, and a good option for a unique date night.

“It’s fun to do something different than go sit at a restaurant,” she says. Plus, you’ll be taking home those kitchen skills to recreate that date over and over again.

Lepp Farm Market has joined in the fun, too. They have classes planned well into the summer, with themes like cooking with fire, cooking with whiskey, and traditional canning lessons. Chefs there include Chef Dez, Rob Feenie and Anthony Wotton.
