Your Education Continues at PICA!
During the BC Place weekend, Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts returned with its onsite, hands-on culinary and pastry classes. Chefs Julian, Darren, Kristin and Christine wowed the crowd with classes including everything from Knife Skills to Sausage Making to Chocolate Ganache!
If you didn't get a chance to attend - or perhaps you did, and you're just craving more in-depth education - don't fret! PICA has released a whole host of culinary classes and pastry classes for this fall!
On Friday evenings, our ever popular Cook! and the City series continues. Typically centered around one city, region, or type of cuisine, these evening classes are designed to be casual, fun, and highly entertaining! You and your classmates will cook a menu from start to finish, and you all sit down and partake in the delicious meal you've created for dinner.
This fall, our offerings include:
- A Wok-ing Tour of Southeast Asia - September 4th
- Friday Night Game Night - October 2nd
- Sushi & Sake Night - November 6th
- Yay for Beaujolais! - November 20th
Alternatively, you may wish for a bit more depth to your classes. Our Saturday technique classes will fit the bill! Designed to go into deeper detail about specific techniques, these four-hour hands-on classes will help you sharpen your skills and take your cooking and baking to the next level. Whether you take one class that piques your interest or you register for several across the board, you'll walk away from these classes ready and equipped to take your kitchen by storm!
Here's a small sampling of our offerings:
- Basics in 8: A Baking & Pastry Skillbuilding Series - September 12 - November 7
- Knife Skills, Life Skills: Essential Culinary Techniques - October 3rd
- Bones & All: Butchery Basics - October 24th
