Delectable Dinners | Rooks to Cooks

Cooking & Baking


Our virtual culinary academy was built to teach our students foundational culinary knowledge and skills in a fun, engaging and interactive way.  

All programs are conducted LIVE on Zoom by our experienced and passionate chef instructors. Through step-by-step instruction, your chef-to-be will learn valuable life and cooking skills as they cook their way through 5-star menus inspired by the season. While learning and practicing new culinary skills, their chefs will also share industry knowledge and theory promoting a holistic learning environment.

Zoom links, consolidated shopping lists, recipes, equipment needs, and set up instructions will be sent 1 week before your course. All savoury recipes will yield 4 servings to help with family meal prep!

Whether your child is a beginner looking to get the basics down or a budding chef eager to expand their recipe repertoire, build on their current foundation of knowledge and take their skills to the next level, Rooks to Cooks has a program for them. 

The recipes featured are optimal for teaching fundamental culinary knowledge and skills such as measuring, mixing, whisking, assembly, knife skills, stove top cooking, baking and more! Recipes have also been carefully selected to minimize the use of high risk equipment when possible in order to prioritize your child’s safety and encourage independence in the program. Every week students will learn to work with new equipment and ingredients, exposing your child to a large array of kitchen tools and flavours.  

Through their participation your child will become more independent, self-sufficient, confident and eager to continue cooking at home.  

All recipes have vegetarian and nut free alternatives. 

Most recipes also have gluten-free and vegan substitutions. All substitutions are pre-listed in your program package.
