In home Private Lessons (Temporarily Unavailable)

Rooks to Cooks offers in-home private and semi private cooking lessons for children ages 5+, teens, and adults. Our lessons are offered in two ways:

  1. Single lessons - ideal for individuals who would like to learn one or two new recipes
  2. Bundle packages - ideal for individuals who would like to build their skills in the kitchen

Our in home private lessons are unlike any other service offered in the GTA. Upon purchasing a bundle package, you will receive a free 30-minute consultation where a certified experienced chef will discuss your or your child's learning goals and needs. During this consultation any allergies and or food aversions will be identified and considered before developing a personalized cooking program. Following this consultation, our team will develop your program, outlining menu items and the skills to be taught during each lesson. This program is made to help you develop your confidence and skills in the kitchen.

Each lesson will take place in the comfort of your own home and kitchen. Our chefs bring all of the ingredients and specialty equipment needed for each lesson so you don't have to worry about grocery shopping. The lesson lasts between 2-4 hours, depending on your preference, and includes all instruction, cooking and cleaning during that time. All of the food prepared during the lesson is yours to enjoy!
