When you meet Melissa you will feel like you have been transported to Umbria and cooking in Melissa’s family kitchen as she regales you with stories of her Nonna.  You will step into her kitchen and immediately be struck by the floor to ceiling view of the Fraser river from her condo. After a moment you will recognize the smell of fresh sage and onions as Melissa shares her sage and onion focaccia along side Torta al testo (Umbrian style bread) with 24 month aged prosciutto di parma.  

Be sure to ask Melissa about the antique drawings on her wall, showcasing her village in Italy.  Parts of the village look exactly the same today.

In My Kitchen is a hands-on cooking experience where passionate and knowledgeable home cooks from diverse cultural backgrounds invite you into their home to share their recipes and culture.  Please visit our website to view the menus.

All workshops are informal, warm and welcoming. They include a light snack upon arrival, approximately 2.5 hours of "in the kitchen" time, learning the recipes and participating in making the dishes, a full dinner, and a booklet of recipes and in-depth culinary info.
