Cookery School

Learn by experience! The Waring House’s recreational cooking classes are suitable for all levels of cooking expertise, will expand your culinary repertoire, and teach you new tricks and chef techniques.

Each class features a particular culinary technique, type of food, region, ingredient or theme. For example, different classes cover comfort foods, Indian food, cooking with strawberries, or home smoking. Many of our classes cover cooking dishes with fresh, local ingredients — some picked that day at farms just down the road from the cookery school.

Thursday classes ($95) feature a sit-down dinner and wine, while Sunday classes ($75) focus on the lighter side, such as hors d’oeuvres or quick and easy meals. To reserve a spot in a scheduled class, contact our front desk at 613-476-7492 or 800-621-4956 or email

Coming from out of town? We have great cookery school packages that include accommodation and dining.

Cookery classes can be a great team building exercise or a way to spend some time with a group of friends. We offer private classes for groups of 6 or more. For information on booking a private cooking class for your group, email
