Learners of all ages LOVE transforming their classroom, lunch room or staff room into a hustling, bustling kitchen with our Chefs@School program. Finally, a super simple route to get real-life culinary professionals in front of your students! Your class can connect and learn directly with our chefs (who have Vulnerable Sector Checks) covering a wide range of topics that can be linked to many subjects or curriculums.

We also offer the program virtually as Chefs@Home. Chefs@Home connects Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) chef educators and advocates with Toronto’s BIPOC youth, providing accessible, culturally appropriate cooking sessions complete with a fully-stocked meal kit for participants to cook along with from home. Because these workshops are offered virtually, all family members and caregivers have the opportunity to engage and benefit from the expertise of our inspiring chefs (and youth!) and enjoy a family meal together.

Can’t wait to cook with us? Practice with these demos from our educators:
