Northwest Culinary Academy Evening Cooking Classes This Fall

25 Sep

NWCABeater NWCAPICThe Northwest Culinary Academy believes that “The Northwest region is the frontier of innovation because it dares to go against the grain.” And they think that “Vancouver boasts a vibrant food scene”. Well we’d have to agree with them on both of those sentiments. Whether you like to cook food, eat or want to learn more about cooking and/or baking, you may wish to check out the Northwest Culinary Academy located at 2725 Main Street (at 12th Avenue). They have courses for every skill level, whether you are seeking a career in a professional kitchen, a culinary or pastry education, boot camps or just tweaking those home cooking skills. Northwest has a variety of programs available including Summer Camps for the serious foodie. The school has been around since 2004 and was created by two experienced chef instructors, Tony Minichiello and Christophe Kwiatkowsky, and has evolved and grown over the years. Some of their graduates include the likes of Adam Chandler who founded Beta-5 Chocolates now winning awards with their chocolates and Taryn Wa who opened Savoury Chef a full service event catering company.

Now for those of you looking to hone your home cooking skills, Northwest Culinary Academy is offering some great one night classes this Fall in which you can cook your way around the globe in 4 evenings. Chef Warren Pahl will teach you a few things including how to debone a chicken and duck, filet a whole fish and how to cook lobster and turn all of these into dishes from around the world. Add to that, each class will include wine pairings for each course you prepare.  We have set out below some of the classes they are offering this Fall which run from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm and the cost:
