From chopping to sautéing, and every cooking technique in between, students of this class will gain the skills they need to nourish themselves and their families. A typical class features three recipes, ranging from easy to challenging, which form a composite meal. At the end of each session we set the table, invite our friends and dig in to the delicious creation of the day. Whether you’re interested in how to achieve the perfect crackle on a brownie, or just want to know how to make mac and cheese, you’re welcome to join us. Bring your ideas of favorite dishes and culinary techniques you wish you knew as our masterchef Rachel incorporates meal plans based on your suggestions.
Don’t pack a lunch, but come hungry: we’re going to be making some delicious meals!
Your Teacher – Rachel Lovick
Naturally wild at heart, Rachel turned her tumultuous teenage years into an unstoppable passion for the culinary arts. Born and raised in East Vancouver, she completed the kitchen training program at the now-closed Picasso Café, and soon after took her apron on the road, working in kitchens as far away as Newfoundland. It was when she returned to Vancouver that she found a kitchen she could call home at Aphrodite’s Organic Café and Pie Shop in Kitsilano. In her eight years at Aphrodite’s, Rachel has gone from working as morning cook, baking bread and muffins, to running the show as the Executive Chef.
Rachel is excited to start her next project: bringing her passion and knowledge of food to the youth at BrainBoost! Devoted to the farm-to-table movement, she is an expert at sourcing and preparing local and organic vegetables and meats. Whether you’re gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian or vegan,Rachel has a recipe just for you.
