I did a half day workshop during one of my vacation days to PEI. It was fantastic and I learned a lot! I would totally recommend it. Also, they were awesome with my family and travel constraints!

The boot camps are held mainly in the summer months when the culinary students are on summer breaks. There were so many great camps to pick from that I had great difficulty deciding. The winner...

We did the Island Flavours Demo today with Chef Ilona and thoroughly enjoyed it. After two fun- and food-filled hours we left feeling inspired to try the great recipes. The wine, the goody bags, the quantity and quality of the food really exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended!!!!

What a treat working in a huge professional kitchen with all the bells and whistles. I wanted to spend hours in the walk in refrigerator smelling all of the fresh herbs and fondling the seafood. Spending the day cooking with the pros was a thrill...plus you don't have to do the dishes!
