Cook With a Chef

Finally get that secret recipe

Supporting local is key in avoiding a post-COVID culinary dystopia of fast food and franchises. That’s why Calgary’s own prodigal cook and food writer Julie Van Rosendaal is doing something about it: she’s planned a series of livestream Zoom cooking classes with beloved chefs from YYC hot spots to help keep them afloat. She’ll send the recipe, you buy the ingredients (not included in ticket price), then cook along with the pros in real time. A batch of sessions is available throughout the month—grab a ticket to cook mouth-watering shakshuka with chef Colin Metcalfe of Sidewalk Citizen (Feb. 24) or whip up that exquisitely cream-cheesy carrot Bundt cake from Gravity Espresso with owner Andy Fennell (Feb. 6). Helping thy neighbour has never tasted so good.

Sessions throughout February / $54 Zoom livestream / cookwithachef.ca
