Classes

“You won’t believe what I did at The Table!”

 The Table offers one-of-a-kind hands-on culinary experiences featuring Prince Edward Island foods and culture.  Our small classes of 6 to 10 people allow you to learn about different Island foods and to see first-hand how they are grown and harvested.  Whether we have live demonstrations in the Studio or take a trip to a farm, you will have an unforgettable and fun experience, getting your hands a little dirty, talking to locals and trying something new along the way.

 In each class, you will join our Chefs in the kitchen to create both understated and sophisticated culinary dishes using fresh local ingredients.  Classes offer something for everyone, from the novice to the expert cook, providing instruction on cooking techniques as well as the products being used.  You get to choose how involved you want to be, you can get right into things or stand back and learn. 

At the end of the class you will enjoy the dishes you have prepared with some freshly made bread and a glass of wine or beverage of your choice.  You will take home the recipes you made and pictures from the class to impress your family and friends with your new culinary skills and tales of your experiences on the Island.

 Check out the list of classes below to find the one for you!

Farm to Table


FARMERS & FISHERMEN ARE THE HEART AND SOUL OF PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND.

 In this class, we will head out to a local organic farm to meet Island farmers and discover what treasures are in season beneath the red dirt fields.  You will definitely want to dress “for the farm” as you will be getting your hands (and knees) dirty as you pick the vegetables that will form the foundation of our meal.  We will then head back to The Table where you will create a culinary masterpiece with our chefs using your freshly harvested ingredients.  


Taste the freshness!

Helping Hands


A Family Farm and Culinary Adventure

On the farm everyone in the family helps with the chores.  From big to small, young to old, each pair of hands pitches in to get the work done. In this class we join local farmer Nancy Sanderson at Hope River Farm for her morning chore rounds, helping to feed the chickens, sheep and pigs and collecting the eggs from the hen house.  We will then head to The Table to create a tasty three-course meal using the eggs that you gathered at the farm and freshly picked herbs from the garden.  This is a true family experience for kids and their parents to get some hands-on fun and learning at the farm and in the kitchen. 


Lend a helping hand, be a farmer for a day!

Hive to Table


Did you know one of every three bites of food we eat is a result of pollinators like honey bees? That's just how important bees are to the cycle of foods we feed our families.  In this class, we will visit local Beekeeper and Environmentalist, Sharon Labchuk in Stanley Bridge for a tour of her bee hives. She will teach us about the vital role bees play in Island agriculture, what beekeeping is all about and how honey is harvested. We will then take our fresh honey knowledge back to The Table where you will work with our Chef to create unique and tasty dishes and treats that will tantalize your taste buds. 

 

You have to taste it to bee-lieve it!
