Get Cooking (MacEwan Edition) is up and running!

If you haven’t already heard, Kathryn Joel’s Get Cooking Edmonton is now fully installed at the MacEwan University residence, inhabiting the former convenience store space. It’s a petite area, but beautifully outfitted with everything needed for a commercial kitchen and, of course, the guests who’ll be dining on that kitchen’s creations.

Get Cooking is a wonderful approach to the traditional cooking class experience, combining in-depth expert instruction with a comfortable, friendly atmosphere and plenty of hands-on experience.

Kathryn held the new location media launch party on October 17, where she and her team of skilled chefs served up an evening of instructional cooking and a variety of appetizer platters. Guests also got the chance to meet Arden Tse of Prairie Noodle Shop, which will be hosting frequent Ramen Pop-Up nights at Get Cooking until their location is ready. There’s a great post about them on Andrea’s blog.

To cater to the growth of Get Cooking’s clientele, the team is continuing to expand and now includes the skills of Wendy Mah and Eric Hanson, alongside Israel Alvarez, Stephen Baidacoff, Brendan Brewster, Professional Sommelier William Bincoletto, and Kathryn herself.
