If you’re a gourmet foodie who loves to cook and travel, you must consider a food-focused weekend at Taku Cookery on Quadra Island where you can enjoy two jam-packed days of culinary adventures alongside a renowned Vancouver chef.
Each course is a weekend-long and features a local celebrity chef. I recently joined for a class with one of Vancouver’s most legendary chefs, John Bishop.
Set in the beautiful kitchen of Taku Resort’s owner Fei Wong, eight cooking class students and I listened intently as Chef Bishop shared his cooking philosophies, favourite recipes, must-have ingredients, essential kitchen tools and behind-the-scenes stories from momentous career occasions, like the time he cooked dinner for Bill Clinton and Boris Yeltsin.
Another highlight of the Taku Cookery experience was staying in a cozy dog-friendly cabin that looked overlooked the ocean.
