We had a very eclectic dining experience, it was informative. I am a lifelong foodie and I learned a lot outside of my BBQ knowledge. Now I know how to make Gnocchi pillows of love. :) Thank you! More...

Amazing experience !!. Highly recommend it . The chef was knowledgeable, funny and engaging . Definitely will do it again
My wife and I took the 'Perfectly Seasoned' course. The instruction was fun and informative and meals we prepared were easy to do and tasted amazing. We had a great time and will be looking to try another class soon. More...

Wonderful! I worked with Steffi to create a fun and interactive afternoon cooking class for 22 guests. Our host Veronica and chef instructor Tessa made sure the event went seamlessly, they were incredibly attentive and friendly to all guests. I would definitely recommend for an engaging and interactive event. Our team cannot wait to host our next event here soon! Thanks so much all :) More...
My husband and I took the Ocean Potion cooking class last week and we both enjoyed it so much ! It was a perfect date night, with good food, good drinks, good ambiance, and good cooking skills / recipes to take home after. The class was easy to follow , and trust me when I say this, because the both of us can't cook ! In the end, we made SUCHHH restaurant worthy dishes and I can't wait to make the for my friends and family next.When we were there, there were also a group of girls. It seemed like such a fun girl's night out activity too ! I'd love to go back again with my girl friends to try out another menu ! More...

Informative, great service &wonderful food!
excellent class as per usual
Food is just perfect!! I love how they prepare your meal with the customer in mind❤❤
Amazing culinary experience!! Our Ocean Potion cooking experience was fantastic. Great staff amazing Chef!!
Ordered a gourmet picnic basket with 1 days notice for a birthday picnic with a friend of mine. Dirty Apron absolutely nailed it. For the price of $80.00 they gave great value. It included a full on charcuterie, 2 sandwiches, drinks, 2 desserts, salads, and utensils. The food provided was 5/5 delicious. Their homemade hummus is absolutely out of this world.Dirty Apron made this evening with my friend an success and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a to go picnic bag More...
It is amazing how simple chefs can teach us to recreate a dish that until now I thought was magic, now we have the secrets.

Fabulous goat cheese and beet salad and loved creme brulee topped with raspberries for dessert and many thanks to the beautiful Kat Tuason for an incredible meal and fun celebration!!!

Fresh ingredients, healthy and tasty!
Took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we absolutely loved it. We did the “winner winner chicken dinner” class where we learned how to butcher a whole chicken and made a curry meal, roasted chicken meal with salad, chicken wings, and were served dessert. Each meal had a wine pairing and everything was so perfectly prepped, cleaned up, and timed. It didn’t feel rushed or too long. Our chef instructor, Tessa, was amazing. She was so knowledgeable and personable. My boyfriend and I both said our favourite part was that we learned so many little tidbits that can go beyond the meal we cooked in the class. More...
Girlfriend and I took the "On the Bone" class for cooking bone-in meats. I've never done a class like this so didn't know what to expect, but I had a lot of fun cooking and the food we made (and the drinks provided with each course) were pretty much worth the price of admission by itself. The woman teaching (I don't recall her name) was very personable and did a great job explaining the recipes first as well as provide some tips on preparation that weren't strictly part of the instructions in the recipe. Great time and fantastic food - I highly recommend taking a class here if you prefer to cook your own food and do something different while on vacation. More...
before we entered the door a lovely person took our group photo and then we were welcomed into the cooking class...we enjoyed a glass of sparkling wine and delicious boards loaded with fresh bread, were there for us to nosh. ...our chef was delightful, so full of energy and made it all so fun...the food was scrumptious, I never thought I would make homemade pasta but it was so easy to do...everything at "The Dirty Apron" is so well done, the staff are amazing...its a great night out! More...
Well done and awesome service. Thank you David Robinson and Takashi
My wife and I took the Ocean Fling seafood cooking class. The instructor Tessa was very personable and knowledgeable. The course started with a nice welcome and cocktail. Then the food demonstration, which after we were set on our own to replicate. All three courses turned out so delicious. Looking for the next classes we want to do. All the techniques I learned are going to definitely help with my cooking progression. More...
kat Tuason is the best ....love thst place
We had a great time and made some very nice dishes that we thought would be good to get some coaching on. I recommend this as a fun and tasty evening out.
We participated in the demo & dine course for the Italian food. Pros: Lovely ambiance, location is super convenient, getting a glass of wine with each course is perfect, food was really tasty, the chef giving the demonstration was absolutely amazing and helpful - we did learn a lot despite not doing anything hands on. Cons: I didn't love the family-style service. It's awkward to share food with complete strangers and the portions weren't split evenly so we politely tried to figure out who should get what. We also had a lot of time where we had to make small talk and it was okay for the first little bit, but we were sitting directly across people we weren't exactly in love with, so that kind of disrupted the experience. I have been to demo & dine's before where instead of just having dead air during the meal portion, you can ask questions and the chef will answer them, or the chef prepares the next course while you're eating. I prefer that. For some reason I thought the wine was an actual pairing, but that's my mistake. It would be a very nice option to have though! The entire evening on the whole was really lovely though and definitely deserves 5-stars as the "cons" are my personal preference and I could see us reviewing differently on another visit. The staff were extremely nice and friendly. We can't wait to try out their restaurant/deli and do a little shopping :) More...
Amazing class, great teacher and what a wonderful afternoon!
My boyfriend and I did the Mamma Mia cooking class and had a blast! As you are watching a demo, staff are setting up the stations for you, so once you’ve finished watching the live demo you jump right into cooking! Once you have finished cooking you head over to a table and eat your food and have some drinks, while staff cleans up your station and prepares you for your second course. They have classes to fit everyone’s dietary needs, and can be modified if needed. I can’t wait for my next class! More...
Great evening learning how to cook Italian small plates. Great instructor and food tasted great
Went to one of their cooking class. Was a lot of fun, but a bit pricey. The teacher should speak a bit louder as it is hard to hear everything with the fans and the noise from the kitchen, but overall great experience.
Excellent soup and sandwiches, cozy atmosphere and pleasant staff. Impressed by the variety of things going on from cooking schooĺ, catering to a nice selection of deli offerings
We did a demo and dine dinner focused on seafood (Seafood Three Ways). A wonderful end-to-end experience. Our host and chef was engaging, informative, and, of course, talented. All three entrees were new for us: sablefish, trout, and Arctic char. In this format, you learn how to prepare the details of the dish through a live demonstration, and then the dish is served to you at a communal table with four to six other diners. Chatting with our tablemates was the non-food highlight; it was great to meet new people who also shared a passion for great food. All in all, a fabulous evening and well worth the price of admission. Do it! More...
Best brunch I’ve ever had....! Good portion size if your a regular human, also..... the coffee was amazing. I should have taken a picture but I devoured it....!
Loved our experience learning how to cook Thai! Our instructor was incredible and the food was amazing! What a beautiful spot!
This review is for the cooking school.Absolutely amazing afternoon!Learned how to make great food, while having a great time with my wife in a fun, cozy kitchen atmosphere! Highly recommend!
We attended a charity cooking event on Nov 8 2018. The chefs were gracious, helpful and very, very skilled. We thought the facility was run very professionally and everything was well thought out. We will definitely be back for some cooking classes. Highly recommended! More...

Fun atmosphere - Thanks to Onside Restoration for the invite!
Great cooking classes. I’ve done three so far and hope to do many more. It may seem expensive but you get so much food and drink plus an evening of entertainment and new recipes and experience cooking things you might not do at home.
Took the Ocean Potion class, and learned the basics of seafood cooking (mussels, scallops, and halibut). Chef John's instruction was fun, concise, and useful. I enjoyed the class, the food I learned to make, and expect to make more seafood now. More...
We attended the gourmet vegetarian course this past week and I was absolutely impressed with how amazing our experience was! The woman who greeted us and served the drinks was lovely, the chef was so friendly and knowledgeable and I was blown away that what we made tasted so good! My boyfriend doesn’t know how to cook at all and his dishes came out perfectly. Loved the wine pairing with each course as well. I love cooking and yet felt like I learned so many new things. The space was beautiful, from the dining area to the cooking space- lovely. I have told all my friends about our excellent experience and can’t wait to come back to try another course! 6 stars if I could! More...
Everything is Amazing! Fresh, delicious food.
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.
Alles war frisch zubereitet in einer top Qualität. Wir hatten Frühstück mit Kaffee und Smoothie. Sehr sehr lecker...

From the beautiful appetizer dish. Beet/goat cheese salad, hummus and avacado on bagette to the beautiful dessert of cronut with strawberry coating and braised whipped cream swirl topping to the wt. Watcher ketogenic dark chocolate cake with berries; edible gold and shaved white chocolate alnond toppings.....We were blown away by the absolute scumptious and deliciousness of absolutely everything and the artistry and culinary skills of exec. Pastry chef and beauty Kat Tuason and her wonderful assistant Michael Tarling....absolutely loved every minit of it...we will be back!!!����� More...
Thank you to the lady I talked to this morning on the phone (~8:30 am). She had a beautiful, exotic name that I will probably butcher the spelling of if I tried. We really appreciate her going above and beyond to squeeze in our gourmet picnic order that my husband and I placed to take the grandparents out today. They've been having a really tough time (medical etc) so this was really appreciated. ♥️ I noticed a very nice selection of products in your store (ex. Maple syrup, oils) so we will be back to visit soon! More...
Went here last fall and fell in love with this quaint little place. The food was superb and staff so friendly. The whole style of this place is perfection. I wish there was a Dirty Apron in Kamloops. I think it would do quite well here. More...
At first I thought I will be cooking my meal that day. To my surprise, all I did was drink wine, listen and watch to the presentation just like I was watching food channel. Only I get to eat what was presented. Not bad for a dinner treat. Even small portion at a time, I felt full in the end. GREAT GIFT IDEA. ..IT WAS FUN LEARNING NEW TRICKS, TIPS IN COOKING. I will never reused a left over onions....... More...
So much fun! We just had the best time! The chef was great! We will definitely go back
It was a Christmas present from my Sweety but after the class I had last night “Cin Cin” I will be signing up for others. I highly recommend purchasing this as a gift for someone who doesn’t want “things” only great memories a perfect choice...! More...
We enjoyed the cooking lessons with about 20 others. Instructor was fun, bubbly and knowledgeable. Food and ingredients were amazing. Location and equipment top notch. Only ask would be to have the dining area not so warm after working in a hot kitchen. Fans perhaps? Otherwise exceeded all expectations. We will definitely be back! ❤️❤️❤️ More...
For a cooking novice like me, the experience was still amazing. Takashi was a great instructor and if he could make me complete a 3-course meal then he must be good. I definitely want to come back!
We did the brunch class and it was fabulous. You definitely feel like you are in a culinary school following along with the instructor after their demonstration and they really let you learn. It is extremely hands on and you get to sit an enjoy each course as you make it with a delicious wine pairing. Awesome instructor, great service, very clean and organized. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun family (mature family) event, team building activity or a date! More...
love, love, LOVED our Mama Mia cooking night...delicious food, love having someone else measure and clean up but am looking forward to recreating menu for whole family ...can hardly wait til next time!
This place makes me so happy. I love the choice I have with specialty ingredients!

The Dirty Apron did an excellent job with the BC Dine & Vine Wine Pairings. My sister-in-law and I have been attending the cooking classes from the beginning, this being our 5th, I think, and each class just seems to get better! Chef David Robertson is professional, personable and full of very helpful tips. And has a good memory - Thanks for remembering us! The support staff is also outstanding! Thank you all for another memorable evening!! More...
Food is excellent; simple ingredients, but It was nice to try things I would never have tried otherwise. Friendly staff. The energy of the room is what you make it. More...
great place loved it! learn how to cook, even if you can't cook or never cooked anything more than instant ramen. very friendly, knowledgeable staff teaches you how to prepare gourmet meals like an expert chef. Great for corporate team building.
Friendly, fun, fabulous food, informative and interesting. All 4 of us said we would do it again. Thank you for cooking our Easter Dinner 2017.
Neat dinner idea. Learned a lot and the food was tasty. Our chef/instructor was great. We ordered a bottle of wine but that meant our wine tasting that came with the dinner was forgotten about by our server.
Marlise DeMoissac Kelsey
What a fun experience. I will definitely be doing this again.
Best of times with best of friends. I suggest a reunion.
What a fab little cafe had the best bacon sarnie ever loved it
What a fun place to learn and create something new. It's set in a professional fun environment. I highly recommend it for a couple or a group.
Nicole Catherine Daniels
What an excellent way to pass a Sunday afternoon! I attended the Brunch class and it was informational, fun, and delicious! I was impressed by the amount of food and beverage pairings that we received and the instructor was knowledgeable and engaging. Would love to attend one of the more challenging classes. All the staff were friendly and I loved that I didn't have to clean up ;-)! More...
Just when I thought I knew what I was doing in the kitchen, I attended the Dirty Apron's Creme de la Creme French Cuisine class on February 3rd. Chef Robert was very detailed, funny, and provided excellent tips and personal advice that will last me a lifetime. The kitchen assistants were meticulous and supportive. The hostess staff were attentive. The kitchen was fully stocked and they clearly know how to pull off a full class as every detail was planned out and ready. The food was mouth watering, scrumptious and ridiculously easy. I learned how to properly temper eggs with hot cream along with so many other tips. I would recommend this to couples, to businesses looking for a team building or just to learn something new. I cannot wait to go back and do it again. More...

Priscila Benelli Walker
Very nice space... demo and dining experience was great (even if I was on my own) the other guests and the team made be feel very comfortable. Great food and class.
Well organized class, friendly environment with experienced chef! We came here on a family vacation from America and it was a deliciously Exciting Experience! Love ❤️ Love this place!!!
I ❤️ the food here. It's wholesome, delicious & it's wonderful setting to steal away from the busy City for a quick lunch break. One my new favourite haunts.
Had fabulous evening last night. Attended a corporate event hosted by Cannacord. We all cooked a gourmet meal learned lots and then enjoyed the meal. The chefs and staff were amazing! I would recommend the Dirty Apron to anyone wanting to enjoy this type of social evening! More...
Not at all pretentious. Warm and inviting. Projects quality, and you can see that the staff enjoy being there, engaging customers and their vendor partners. The sandwiches in the deli are great, very fresh. More...
A fantastic experience.... Full evening of wonderful food and valuable cooking techniques.
Wonderful and delicious way to start my visit with my family in Vancouver! Instruction, recipes and food were excellent...great atmosphere and dining, too!
Oh my.. You have to try the lemon chive mascarpone breakfast sandwich. It is God sent.
Amazing experience 100% recommend for cooking classes -David Ly
I had a great time and reignited my love for cooking. The food was fantastic and I must admit, it was really, really nice to have someone else measuring out the ingredients and cleaning up after me, too. I wish I was this spoiled at home!
Fun learning atmosphere. Cook and eat your food and no dishes to wash.
Gabriella is amazing! Always smiling and has a great sense of humor! Love the deli meats, the cookbooks, the knife sharpeners, the product. Also, the fact that you teach cooking classes.. 1up. Beautiful place! I'll be by lots to annoy you all! More...
Amazing cooking class! Easy to follow and super tasty.
Tomoko Tsuji Ikeda
The chef was amazing and also the guy who looks like David Morse was very kind to me, a tourist from Tokyo, and very helpful.
Amazing food! Amazing time! Patient and knowledgeable chefs/staff/ instructors! Thank you Dirty Apron.
Plan a picnic, order their picnic special. You will not be disappointed!
Had a great time and would highly recommend it for a fun date night.
I had the most fun I've had in a long time at the cooking class last night. The staff/chefs are friendly, fun and informative, the food was amazing and I learned a lot. Will definitely be coming back!
Absolutely amazing food, amazing staff and a wonderful atmosphere.
The team-building class was great fun allowing us to do our own version of Master Chef! Loved that I was able to replicate the poached pear tarts on my own a week later. Yum! :)
