Virtual & Interactive Cooking Classes

Many of us are self isolating and/or practicing physical distancing, but we still need social interaction. Our physical studios are both closed, but to keep you socially interactive The Chef Upstairs is now offering a wide selection of Virtual Classes and Experiences.

Interactive, Fun and Delicious

The Chef Upstairs creates an intimate dining experience with amazing chefs & spectacular food. Whether it's a cooking class or private event, you'll find our chefs' passion for food and fun makes every occasion memorable. 

Prepare outstanding menus with our talented chefs using fresh, local, ingredients; pair each course with the perfect wines (or a healthy smoothie for the kids!); and learn the skills to duplicate the same experience at home. 

Weekly classes with exciting, seasonal menus or private events with customized menus for all ages and occasions

“WHAT A FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE…for J, his friends and us. They all had an amazing time.. words cannot express, how impressed I was by everything… Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Michelle R., January 2020

“I hired the Chef upstairs for a private date night. I could not have asked for a better night. the chef came to the house and prepared all the food, served all the food and made sure our glasses were always full, and the food was absolutely amazing. I was able to enjoy a date night with my significant other in the comfort of my own home. THE CHEF ALSO CLEANED ALL THE DISHES. 110% recommend for any couple looking for a great date night.”

“Held my office holiday party at the Vaughan location. We did the Iron Chef challenge and everyone had the most fun. Best office party we had in years. The food was also great! Chefs were organized and very helpful throughout the process. Would highly recommend!”

“Had a great experience learning how to make a Mexican dinner! It was very hands on and we all shared the responsibilities. Pierre did a great job of answering everyone's questions. The food tasted great even though everyone were beginners. I will definitely come back to learn another dish!”
