Best Gifts: Cooking Class at The London Chef

There is one final item to give away on this year's Best Gifts for the Home Cook wish list, and I am really excited about this one because it is very near and dear to my heart. I'm giving away a cooking class! And not just any cooking class. I'm giving away a gift certificate for a cooking class at The London Chef cooking school here in Victoria, BC. I am a guest instructor there and I know for certain you are going to LOVE the experience.

Heads up in advance - the winner of this prize must be able to attend the class in Victoria. So please enter if you live in the Greater Victoria area or can get yourself here, or if you have someone in Victoria you want to gift it to.

If there's one thing I know for certain about people who love to cook, it is that they love to be around other people who love to cook. A cooking class at The London Chef gets you out of the solitude of your own kitchen and into a beautiful and comfortable space to explore new flavours and techniques. It is about spending a few hours enhancing your cooking skills and indulging in the joys and flavours of great food and friendly company.

I started teaching at The London Chef in early 2012, which wasn't too long after the business was opened by Dan and Micayla Hayes who have since become my friends. I call it the most beautiful kitchen in Victoria. It's spacious and bright and sparkles brightly inside floor-to-ceiling street-level windows. If you have my book The Canning Kitchen you may even recognize that I photographed some of the book at The London Chef.

Wherever you live, a cooking class is an excellent gift for a passionate home cook. Scroll down to find out how to enter this fantastic giveaway!
