The Dirty Apron Cooking School is Vancouver's favourite culinary playground, a place for amateur cooks, the curious and professionals alike to learn, explore, and unleash their inner chef.
Born out of a passion for great food the school is owned by former Chambar Sous-Chef David Robertson and his wife Sara. David has a formidable background in classic French cuisines and teaches the majority of the classes, with guest and celebrity chef appearances peppered throughout the year.
Instruction focuses on popular regional cuisines as well as basic skill sets for ingredient-focused cooking. Students use only the best tools of the trade thanks to partnerships with All Clad cookware, Wusthof knives, Wolf ranges, and Sub Zero fridges.
The cooking classes offered are hands-on and designed to walk students through each step towards crafting a complete meal. Our classes feature various themes and are approximately four hours in length. We also provide private cooking classes to large groups. Contact us to find out how to book your private session.
