Therapeutic Classes

Steering Clear of the “Freshman 15” & Other Survival
Strategies for Students Starting Campus Life 

Gearing up to move away to College or University this fall? Join Chef Pam and other students anticipating the exciting changes ahead to learn how to cook more than just Kraft Dinner! During this 3-week course, you will learn how to survive a meal plan and whip up fantastic healthy meals in your dorm even while on a budget! We will make fajitas, fresh pizzas, 2 chicken entrees, Italian pasta dishes and even some amazing deserts. Chef Pam will also take you to visit a local grocery store to explore some shopping techniques that will save you time and money while living on campus. In the meantime, you’ll be having fun with other students at the same exciting, and sometimes terrifying, stage of moving away from home! 

NO PARENTS ALLOWED! Classes are limited to 10 students so that your experience will be hands on and interactive. There will be lots of opportunity to eat the food you make and even take some home after each class! Recipes booklets will also be provided.

Wednesday, August 6, 13th and 20th   6-7:30pm

About Chef Pam
Chef Pam brings a unique combination of talents to her work in the kitchen with young adults as she is also a well known and respected Clinical Social Worker that has specialized in working with adolescents during the past 15 years. While practicing social work, Chef Pam began using cooking as a medium to bring people together in a non-threatening environment to learn how to cooperate, work together, problem solve and communicate better with others. Chef Pam also still maintains a private clinical practice in Toronto where she offers counseling and life skills training to teens and their families. Therapeutic cooking classes continue to emerge from the kitchen as she combines her two passions – working with youth and cooking from scratch with local ingredients and creative flair on a budget!
