Our sharing menu classes are the perfect way to wind down after a busy work day or week.

Fresh from his media tour with his brand new best selling cookook, The Firehouse Chef”, Patrick Mathieu cooks for you in the Relish kitchen. Bring along your someone special and join us as we learn to make a cheese and charcuterie board – perfect for sharing over a glass of wine. Charcuterie (pronounced “shar-kood-er-ee”) is a board that’s full of mystery, variety and explosions of flavour.  Chef Patrick Mathieu show you how to create some of his favourite mouth-watering pates and compotes plus assemble for easy entertaining or sharing just for two.  Eat, laugh and learn your way through the evening that you too will love to share with others.

Meet The Instructor…Patrick Mathieu

With his infectious smile and easy-going manner, Patrick is one of our most popular guest chefs.  Cooking since he was a teenager, he is completely self-taught, but as a fire-fighter and “chief” cook on his platoon with the City of Waterloo Fire Department, Patrick is never far from the heat!  Growing up in a family of culinary enthusiasts, his earliest childhood memory was watching his grandmother cooking at her home in Quebec, preparing traditional French-Canadian meals.  His favourite style of cooking is French, (of course), but enjoys many different types of cultural and ethnic cuisines.  When we asked him “what are the 5 ingredients you couldn’t live without”, his reply was “butter, garlic, wine, bacon and cheese…You know, all the good stuff!”  When not busy around the firehall kitchen, he keeps busy with  his catering business Station House Catering
