Taking that first bite of a peach or a cob of corn is one of our favourite ways to celebrate summer.

Tonight we’ll show you innovative ways to incorporate fresh peaches and corn into a variety of sweet and savoury dishes.  We’ll walk you through the steps for stripping corn from the husk, pitting and grilling peaches and cooking fish on the barbecue.  We’ll show you how easy it is to make your own vinaigrette and finish off with a refreshing summer dessert.  Join us and learn the secrets for enhancing every dish with fresh summer peaches and corn.

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR:  DONNA-MARIE PYE

Donna-MarieGrowing up in Whitby, Ontario, Donna-Marie was introduced to great food at an early age.  Memories of summers spent putting up beans, corn, peaches and tomatoes with her mother and sisters, picking and selling strawberries at a roadside country stand, catching fish off the east coast of Canada and cooking over campfires on family camping trips created Donna-Marie’s appreciation for unfussy, flavourful food.

Donna-Marie’s straightforward style and easy-going manner are illustrated by her heartfelt belief that cooking is easy and anyone can do it.  All anybody needs are a few tips and tricks, a handful of well-tested recipes and some time-saving cooking tools, all of which is offered at Relish Cooking Studio with sincerity and humility.

Donna-Marie holds a Bachelor in Applied Science in Food and Nutrition from Ryerson University (formerly Ryerson Polytechnical Institute), a diploma in Public Relations from York University and has taken cooking courses around the world.  She is the best-selling author of four cookbooks including Canada’s/America’s Best Slow Cooker Recipes, The Best Family Slow Cooker Recipes, 300 Slow Cooker Favourites and 300 Slow Cooker Winners.  Donna-Marie is a member of the Ontario Home Economics Association and Ontario Home Economists In Business.  Relish Cooking Studio is the fulfillment of a life-long dream of owning her own cooking school which opened its doors in August 2011.
