Holiday issue 2011


The jingle bells have started ringing and holiday shoppers are making their lists. Consider choosing a "culinary experience" as an unique gift for a friend, family member or client.

We have a number of great gift packages and products to choose from, at all price points. This time of year is also a time for giving to those in need. From food banks to health causes, there are many worthy charities to consider. A portion of sales of our cookbook,
The Art of Herbs, will be donated to the Ontario Association of Food Banks', Buy Local Share Local program. Please join us in supporting  them this season.

Our new season will begin in February. Check out our classes for some fun this winter!

Happy Holidays

Filming Day for PaperChef Culinary Parchment 
I have a new appreciation of what it takes to host a cooking show. It was a fun, but busy day prepping, staging, shooting (re-shooting), and of course sampling! Thanks to the folks at PaperChef and their agency, Compass360, for choosing From the Farm Cooking School for their Holiday Campaign. Yes, this culinary paper is the best I've ever used. You will be amazed at it's versatility and making clean-up a breeze in your kitchen! I even cook my bacon on it now. You can pick up  their products at Loblaws & Costco, and a number of food shops across Canada.
