The area
Address
Neighborhood: Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
How to get there
  • Beaubien • 9 min walk
  • Rosemont • 10 min walk

We were a group of 15. We went for both a amuse-geule creating team competition and the meal. The host took time to teach a few cutting techniques first, then we had separate stations and clear rules. The meal was delicious; the competition was fun.

An absolutely fabulous night with the charming and entertaining chef Jonathan. Not everyone in our group spoke French, but this did not pose a problem at all as the staff were bilingual.

What I loved about it:

- Jonathan! Seriously, it's hard not to love the guy.
- The prep: fabulous information, open to loads of questions. you get a chance to try things yourself.
- The non-stop wine: but go easy until after you finish working with those sharp knives! :)
- The food: which was seriously delicious. I wish I had the room to finish each plate!
- Their flexibility: we had some food allergies, some life-threatening and some just strange (aged cheese?), but no one was left out and wonderful alternatives were prepared for those that needed them.
- The vibe, the humour, the music.
- The fact that you get the recipes afterwards. I've done another cooking class at a very well known cooking school and they refused to share the recipes.
- The fact that although I seem "swoosh"-impaired (making decorative swipes on a plate is harder than it looks), the chef was very patient and helped correct my technique.
- A few days later we are still all talking about the wonderful night we had and it was certainly an excellent team-building event.

I will absolutely go back when I am in Montreal and would highly recommend this for couples, friends and/or colleagues.

As we had people from across the country coming to Montreal I decided to try this activity. Well it was not disappointing.

From the arrival to the last bite this was fun and very interactive.

If you have a team of anywhere from 8 to less than 20 people this is something that everyone will remember.

We decided on the appetizers (cauliflower with scallops and endives salad with Bleu cheese) and the main was the "Bavette steak)

We closed it off with a chocolate mousse.

All of it was fun, you learn how to chop veggies properly, you spend a bit of time to cook and you have plenty of time to interact as a group.

2 points to possibly improve (and if they need to up the prize a tad .. so be it or think of doing it as part of your event).

1 - a small gift with the name of the place would be nice (even the apron everyone was wearing)
2 - Having Jonathan Garnier stop by to say hello (I know he is extremely busy but that would have been nice)

That being said I am not taking anything away from them... this was a great evening.

A group of us from work booked a private class as a team event. The evening started sitting at the long counter with a glass of wine while the chef, David, and his helper, also David, gave us some early tips and explained about the cuisine we were going to cook. The initial part was demonstration but then we all rolled up our sleeves, literally, and started chopping and cooking under the supervision of the chef.

There are several menus/ themes to choose from - Italian, French, etc. We chose Asian and the dishes were delicious. After preparing and cooking the appetizer (veggie rolls), main dish (chicken in a coconut/ peanut sauce), dessert (coconut ice cream and banana/chocolate in won ton wrappers, deep fried and YUM), we sat down at a long communal table and ate. Sooooo good.

I highly recommend the experience.

Everytime I come back to the Guilde Culinaire I'm impressed with the amazing service provided by the staff and with the vision of chef Garnier for putting this school/shop/restaurant together. It's heaven for anyone with a passion for the art of preparing and presenting food. In an amazingly simple and accessible setting, you'll learn ways to prepare meals that will wow your spouse, your friends and probably even yourself! I use the skills I learned at the Guilde every chance I get and I always look forward to the opportunity to come back and learn some more. Don't miss this opportunity to take these small but precious moments spent around a dinner table to the next level.

I had a 10am-1:30pm class with Nicolas Dutertre a chef from Point G (unfotuntely I forgot the name of his sous-chef that was there also). The class was called 100% macarons du Point G and was given in French. It had 12 participants.

First, he demonstrated how to make various fillings for the macarons like a ganache and a caramel filling. Then he demonstrated how to make the actual macaroons. Throughout the whole thing he was giving us little tips and tricks to do the macaroons correctly. During the demonstrations he also called a few volunteers to help him with the cooking

For the last 1-2 hours, we all practiced making the macaroons themselves along with the fillings. We then practiced piping them onto the trays and then practiced filling them too.

Throughout the whole class we were given samples of everything that was made and wine was provided also. At the end, we were all given our macaroons to take home with us.

For anyone who likes macaroons I would definitely recommend this class if you've ever wanted to make them on your own. Yes, the class is a little expensive, but it is worth the money if macaroons are something you enjoy. I would recommend the class to others and will definitely be going to other classes at the Guide Culinaire.
