Georgia Straight Golden Plate Award Winner 2017!
With absolute gratitude our team was blown away when it was announced we won second place for the prestigious reader voted Golden Plate Award for Best Place for Casual Cooking Class after only being open for less than one year. Thank you readers!
I had gone here for a work function, we had planned to do a Italian cooking class with our whole office. It was a really fun afternoon, our teacher was Dan and he was great! Taught us so many tips on how to make the food at home and got us all laughing together with the ice breakers. Was such a good time.
Amber Birch, WestPoint Naturals - Team Builder, July 2017
Thank you to both for a great afternoon of learning, cooking, and laughs. It's often difficult to plan for a group of people of varying ages, interests and tastes but I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, the food, and your banter. So thankful that I found you through google. Will keep you in mind for future events. Thanks for the delicious recipes! I'll be sure to pass them onto the team.
Allison Lau, TD Relationship Manager - Team Builder - June 2017
Our team had a great time at a Nourish cooking class. Not only did we learn the delicious recipes we cooked (and LOVED eating the end result), we were also taught transferable kitchen skills. Dan and Alicia, who were our instructors, were so friendly, personable and funny. We would highly recommend this experience for any group or individual - it couldn't be better!
Amanda Isaak, lululemon - Team Builder - April 2017
Our group participated in a private cooking class and we all had an amazing time! Dan and Alicia were friendly, approachable, and taught us some great new skills. The food was fantastic and the class was a great way to spend time together doing something fun. I would highly recommend Nourish!
Caitlin Spelliscy, Pacific Coastal Airlines - Team Builder - April 2017
Had an amazing night with my team from the office cooking rustic Italian! It was such a blast! Dan was super accommodating for our group! The food was amazing and Claire ams Alicia were great instructors!! So much fun!
Sheena Graham, Watertrax - Team Builder - March 2017
We had so much fun last night! I just wanted to say that Lisa and Alicia were amazing facilitators and they rolled with our crazy musical crowd like pros all the while cooking and teaching! I learned a lot! I’ll forever massage my kale going forward. : ) Hope you get chance to see the video footage…such a great night. I’ll be sure to post some details of our event on our Facebook Page and tag you guys to spread the word about how awesome Nourish is.
Katherine Deane, Westside Music Together - Team Builder - Jan 2017
The space at Nourish is so charming! We rented the space for a couple of photo shoots because it has the warmth of a home kitchen - the perfect setting. They were wonderfully accommodating and it was hard not to stop eating all of the treats! We also had a private cooking lesson for a Christmas get-together and we learnt so much that we still use everyday at home - how to make your own butter and homemade bread. I can't live without the Bangkok Noodle Salad.
Elizabeth Vegh - Arithmetic Creative - Company Christmas Party - Dec 2016
On behalf of our Customer Success and Data Management team at Visier, thank you so much for the lovely afternoon. Alicia, Kevin, and Claire and of course you (Lisa) put on such a fun and engaging cooking class for us. The organization and the detail you all put into our event was second to none. You have set a high bar for any upcoming team building activities we do!
The team made comments all afternoon about how they learned something new whether it was about food or each other = Team Building success!
