The Arts Club Theatre Company announces its spring 2012 lineup of Celebrity Chef Cooking Classes, running from May 28 to July 18. These intimate four-course dinners held at private residences throughout Vancouver will provide guests the opportunity to discover the latest trends in food and wine, as well as ways of incorporating in-vogue ingredients into the home cook’s arsenal. Not only are these popular events fun and engaging, but they also raise funds for the Arts Club Theatre, a not-for-profit theatre company.

Each highly sociable evening starts with a glass of wine and an amuse bouche to whet the appetite. The chef then gets down to business: a three hour interactive master class demonstrating professional techniques from the simple to the ingenious. Guests have one-on-one access to some of the most skilled and innovative chefs in Vancouver, who will present dishes that highlight the best offerings of the season.

Each class will showcase the finest vintages from a BC winery with wines from the Mark Anthony Group portfolio, including Ganton & Larsen Prospect Winery and Rigamarole Wines. This series features a special spotlight on Mission Hill Family Estate—named Winery of the Year in 2011 by InterVin International Wine Competition.

The spring lineup of classes welcomes new chef instructors: David Robertson, owner of The Dirty Apron Cooking School; TV personality Anthony Sedlak, who recently opened The American Cheesesteak Co. in Yaletown; Tim Evans at Siena Restaurant; and Tom Lee, chef de cuisine at Edible Canada at the Market.
