Metro Master Class lets you train with Toronto’s best chefs

Taste of Toronto kicks off today with an entirely new and exciting landscape at the Garrison Commons – Fort York. If you’ve dabbled in the art of culinary adventure, or if you’re simply a beginner looking to bring some cooking tricks to your kitchen, be sure to check out the Metro Master Class!

Metro Master Class

You will learn how to create your own mouth-watering creations all with the guidance and support of some of Toronto’s hottest chefs. Make your own pasta dough from scratch or perfectly sear a fish filet (don’t worry, all the prepping is done for you).

Be sure to check the website to pick the dish you want to cook. Spots are free but space is limited so be sure to reserve your spot at the festival as soon as you arrive to avoid disappointment.
