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.
