The GOODS from The Dirty Apron

Vancouver, BC | The Dirty Apron Cooking School is Vancouver’s favourite foodie playground. Now the school is expanding its class curriculum with their newest venture, Friday Night Bites – a Demo & Dine-style series where students join Chef David Robertson for an intimate evening of culinary education, delicious food and beautiful wine.

No aprons are dirtied or needed in this two-hour class — the full four-course tasting meal is prepared right in front of students as they sit back, relax and learn through watching, listening and tasting. Chef David takes students through each course step-by-step and shares his tips, tricks and tools of the trade along the way. After each dish is demonstrated, it is served for guests to savour alongside a glass of wine.

The course themes will rotate monthly. April’s ‘Italian Tasting Plates’ menu features Butternut Squash Gnocchi with a Tomato Braised Lamb Shoulder; Sicilian Yellowfin Tuna Steak with a Tomato Caper and Olive Sauce; Goat Cheese & Arugula Ravioli in a Walnut Sage Sauce; and Frangelico Poached Pear Tart with Red Wine Syrup.

Offered on Friday nights starting April 8th, Friday Night Bites is a perfect complement to the roster of popular hands-on classes that The Dirty Apron is known for, and is ideal for those who prefer to watch and learn.

Friday Night Bites is available for $95/guest. For more information, and to register, click here.

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.
