Cooking and Baking from Beginner to Advanced with Renee in the Kemptville Area

About the lesson

Cooking is intuitive; once you've gained a basic understanding of some key concepts, you'll be able to prepare and plate restaurant quality meals in your own kitchen!

I've worked as a chef for 10+ years - most of which were spent at one of Ottawa's most prestigious restaurant - but I've been cooking alongside my mother since I was old enough to hold a whisk.

I can teach you proper knife skills or how to successfully follow a recipe, or we can focus on anything from sauces to pastries.

Baking, unlike cooking, is a more precise science. As such it must be approached with a different point of view - the level of improvisation allowed in cooking isn't going to fly when you're baking. That being said, baking isn't as difficult as people would have you believe; it may take some trial and error, but if you follow the recipe properly it's extremely rewarding!

The most important thing is putting love and patience into everything you cook. No need to get stressed out when something doesn't come out the way you hoped it would the first time. It's a learning experience, and no one is perfect. Any chef will tell you the most important ingredient is time - the amount of time and care you put into a dish will be reflected in the final result!

About Renée

I, like many people who find themselves working in hospitality, have a Bachelor of the Arts. I attended StFX University in Nova Scotia (my home province), which is where I landed my first cooking job, before moving to Ottawa and working for 8 years in a French fine dining restaurant. I have also been baking for 20+ years and love fine-tuning my craft as well as sharing my considerable knowledge with others! I actually spent the last year on maternity leave and volunteered my time teaching culinary arts classes to high school students at a private school in Lakefield, Ontario and I enjoyed it immensely.
