Kathryn Joel Cooking Classes, Farm to Fork, From Our Classes, Virtual Classes, Virtual Cooking Classes

I moved to Edmonton, Alberta in the summer of 2009, and tried my first Green Onion Cake at that summer’s Folk Fest. These savoury pancakes, filled with green onions and typically eaten with sambal hot sauce and black vinegar, are Edmonton’s favourite and beloved snack food. There’s even been a movement to name them Edmonton’s official dish. Green Onion Cakes …

Stirred, Not Shaken, at our First Ever Whisky Class

Kathryn Joel From Our Classes, How To, Mixology, Recipe, Uncategorized

Whisky was once a classist quaff for the well-heeled. I used to imagine stodgy, waistcoat-wearing old men with David Attenborough accents bonding in silence over a neat Speyside, or Colonel Sanders-esque white suit-wearing American plantation owners languishing in the summer heat, a Tennessee sippin’ whisky their only solace from the elements.

Kathryn Joel From Our Classes, News, Our Friends

The history of cocktails is entwined with turbulent maritime stories, colonialism, victories and defeats, pain and suffering. Brendan Brewster kicked off his class with a Continental Fancy Lunch Punch. Punch, a loan word from Sanskrit meaning five, migrated from India to England in the 1700s. We sat ourselves down, sipping his delicious creation that incorporated the five holy ingredients: his …

Cook Greek Classes at Get Cooking

Kathryn Joel From Our Classes

A lot of Kathryn’s classes come about as a result client requests. This one was made by a couple, who asked if we did any Mediterranean or Greek cooking at Get Cooking. Do you know anyone who would rather not be lounging around on a  sun soaked, oregano scented isle, sipping small glasses of ouzo, while nibbling on myriad mezze? …
