To say it has been an exciting Spring is an understatement. There has been much to do and so much going on at KITCHEN.

Our June cooking classes sold out quickly. We wish we could offer more but there are only so any days in a month. Rest assured, you can always book a private class with a minimum of 8 people.

July is a busy and fun month in Edmonton (farmers’ markets, the Taste of Edmonton & more). I think we should be outside soaking up the sun, food fun and great weather. As such, KITCHEN is taking a break from scheduled cooking classes for the month of July.

But we do have important bites of news to share with you:

Elk Island National Park KITCHEN Dinners
Elk Island National Park and KITCHEN have teamed up to put on two great late summer dinners at Astotin Lake, located in the heart of the park.

We will be serving up a ranch-man style dinner that includes flavours of the area, and yes, there will be bison on the menu. Dinner will be served high on a knoll overlooking the lake; the perfect view for sunset. The menu will be family-style and your ticket includes beer and wine. There will also be park interpreters to take us on a little hike and explain the history of the park.

We have two dinners scheduled:

Saturday, August 22, 2015 – 6:30pm start time, rain or shine

Saturday, September 12, 2015 – 6:30pm start time, rain or shine

There are only 24 seats available per dinner. Tickets go on sale starting July 1, 2015 on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets are $145 per person including GST and admission to the national park.

Tickets can be reserved starting July 1 by emailing

Reconnect with this amazing piece of nature. Book a campsite, and/or come out early for golf, a hike or a nature walk.

For those that night over, join me in Andrew, Alberta the next day as I will be a judge at their Borsch cook off! More details soon.

Events Edmonton Culinary Workshops

The team at Events Edmonton are putting on a series of culinary workshops at Sip’n Savour in Sir Winston Churchill Square. Find out more and reserve your ticket soon!

Interstellar Rodeo

KITCHEN will be at Interstellar Rodeo in Edmonton from July 24-26, serving up our Ukrainian meatballs, roasted little potatoes, goat cheese truffles and Newget, for those with a sweet tooth. Get your tickets and come down to Hawrelak Park to listen to some tunes, grab a bite and enjoy our Edmonton summer.

KITCHEN Wine Maker Dinners

We are working hard to secure more wine maker dinners at KITCHEN for this fall. As soon as we have events confirmed, we will let you know through our blog and social media.

In the meantime, we still have a couple of dates available this summer for stagettes, birthday parties or a kitchen party with good friends. Email us at to learn more.
