A great first month on Roncesvalles
It's been a little over a month since we opened our new shop on Roncesvalles, and it's been full of warm welcomes and valuable learning. Learning, not only about what our community's home cooks are looking for in a local Kitchen shop, but also how we can support our neighbouring restaurants and community members. We survived our first Polish festival, have replenished our shelves, and are now planning an official Grand Opening celebration (more details below).
We also launched our first few months of Cooking Class curriculum - to fabulous response, participation, and input. Based on your requests, we have extended our offerings from public 6-person pre-registered classes, to bigger classes AND private events of all kinds.
The November & December class schedule is ready at http://cookery-store.ca/pages/cooking-classes. This new schedule includes several more appearances of Cookery 101's Knife Skills, more Weekday Gourmet, lots of 'Holiday', and the introduction of classes for children and teenagers. As always, your feedback helps us refine the offerings going forward - so don't hold back.
Please remember, class participation is limited to 6 participants per class and is first come, first served. Email Jessica@cookery-store.ca with your picks as soon as you're ready, to avoid disappointment. And of course, you can also do this in person in the store.
We've been testing the opening hours over the first few weeks and think we have it 'close to right' - we're open every morning at 10am - til 7pm Monday to Wednesday & Saturday, later on Thursdays and Fridays (8pm), a little earlier on Sundays (6pm).
Lastly, we have a few exciting events coming up -
Our Grand Opening celebration will be on Sunday, October 19th. Please join us for product demos, specials, and giveaways all day. We are also very excited to have David Ort, author of The Canadian Craft Beer Cookbook, coming in at 2pm on Saturday, November 1st to talk about his book, sign copies, and prepare some of his fabulous creations.
We hope to see you soon,
