“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 4 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 Chef 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 sit down to enjoy a lunch of the dishes you have prepared with some freshly made bread and a glass of wine, beer or beverage of your choice. You will be provided with 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.

What is nicer than the smell of fresh bread?
Have you always wanted to know how to make homemade bread but haven’t had any success or been afraid to try it on your own? In this class, we will teach you the basics of breadmaking as you make your very own loaf of braided artisan bread from start to finish, and offer tips to help make breadmaking at home stress-free. Once you unlock the secret of artisan bread, you will be able to make a batch of dough at home that will last you through the week and allow you to make fresh bread every night for your family.

One of the hidden culinary treasures of Prince Edward Island...
is the black garlic produced by Al Picketts of Eureka Garlic. Black garlic is a type of cured garlic used in high-end cuisine that is versatile, unique and mouth-watering in its flavour. In this class, we will visit Eureka Garlic to learn about Al’s passion for garlic and how black garlic is made. At The Table, you will create both sweet and savoury dishes using this black “gold” to create layers of flavour that will awaken your taste buds and spark your imagination.
You will never see garlic the same again!

Farm to Table
Experience Island farming the organic way!
Farmers and fishermen are the heart and soul of the history and lifeblood of Prince Edward Island. With almost 50 organic producers and approximately 10,000 acres of certified organic farmland on the Island, the PEI Certified Organic Producers Cooperative aims to make farming PEI’s famous red soil sustainable based on the principles of Health, Ecology, Fairness, and Rare. In this class we will visit a local organic farm, Alexander Fresh Vegetables, to meet one of these organic farmers and learn how the principles produce vegetables bursting with intense flavour and nutrition while preserving the soil for generations to come. Get ready to “Get Red” as you dig into the earth for a harvest of the freshest organic produce. Back at The Table, you will prepare a fresh and delicious feast – organically!
Taste the freshness!

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 of recipes suitable for aspiring young Chefs using the eggs that you gathered at the farm. 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!
