The Dirty Apron Cooking School and Delicatessen is Vancouver’s most exciting culinary playground. A place for the amateur, the culinary-inclined or the curious,The Dirty Apron offers a fun, relaxed environment to learn, explore, and unleash your inner chef.

The Cooking School instruction focuses on popular regional cuisines as well as basic skills for ingredient-focused cooking. During the hands-on classes, students are walked through each step required in crafting a complete meal of appetizer, entrée and dessert. After the preparation and plating of each dish is finished, students gather at the communal dining table in the stylish dining room to enjoy their creations alongside a glass of wine, while the staff takes care of the dirty dishes. Students use only the best tools of the trade thanks to partnerships with All Clad cookware, Wusthof knives, Wolf ranges, and Sub Zero fridges.

The Dirty Apron’s Delicatessen offers downtown dwellers speciality coffees, beautifully baked pastries, hot lunches, gourmet sandwiches, take-home carvery meals, deli meats, artisan Cheeses, fresh flowers, and specialty ingredients and products. Sandwich lovers rejoice in our chef ’s creations. The pulled pork with Japanese mayo, pickled carrots, bean sprouts and cilantro on French baguette is a fresh take on a Vietnamese bánh mì. Other sandwiches like chicken with chipotle mayo and roast tomatoes; prosciutto with fig and Brie cheese; hummus with avocado, mint carrot and pomegranate molasses; or the roast beef, chimichurri, and charred tomato salsa are also sure to satisfy.

With The Dirty Apron Cookbook you can enjoy what The Dirty Apron has to offer at home. Containing tried and true recipes from the Cooking School and Deli, plus plenty of chefs notes, tips and tricks, this beautifully illustrated book is a go-to resource in the home kitchen.
