Cooking Program for Men - By Peter Graben
Join well-known Toronto food tutor Peter Graben for a cooking class experience that will not only delight your taste buds but will enhance every aspect of your life!

Whatever your goals are in learning to cook, we will help you reach them because there isn't a single aspect of life that isn't improved by eating good healthy food. After all... eating is life itself!

Imagine learning to cook the exotic foods that you love to eat in your very own home. Fill your home with mouthwatering odours that will have your family salivating with anticipation; can you imagine the look on your family or friends face when you serve them the tasty and delicious food? Cooking is so much fun. You will get untold pleasure from the skills you learn. Class fees include hands-on cooking tuition, all of the yummy food you prepare plus take home copies of the recipes used including a number of variations - enough to serve up an array of dishes and encourage the "cook inside you" to blossom and bloom.

Enjoy a relaxed informal atmosphere and the benefits of Peter's personal attention, cooking classes are held during the day or evening in Peter's own kitchen.

The Wine Guy -Tony Aspler cooks with Peter

In the evening to Peter Graben's for the first of two cooking lessons that Deborah had bought for me for Christmas. Peter, a caterer and transplanted Glaswegian, runs cooking classes for men out of his home below Casa Loma. His company is called ManChef and mainly it's for men who can't boil water and don't know where the kitchen is.

He interviewed me over the phone and decided I was more advanced than his usual students so we would do a one-on-one lesson. What did I want to do? I said I wanted to know how to make a meat stock and a vegetable stock and how to make great chicken curry. It was a great evening and I came home with a fantastic chicken curry that "perfumed" up the car for days.

Deborah was out at a book club evening so I ate part of it alone with Mission Hill Riesling Reserve 2011 (pale lime colour; minerally, floral nose with a petrol note and shades of lime and grapefruit; off-dry with honey and lime flavours with a lively spine of acidity that gives the wine great length (90)).
