Carolyn Cohen is the owner of DeliciousDish; a cooking school that has operated for 14 years out of her gorgeous home. Her cooking school specializes in whole food home cooking, meal planning, recipe developing and healthy eating.
A group of top Toronto food Instagrammers and I were invited to a class at DeliciousDish with “Weeknight Quickies” as our class theme. Carolyn taught us how to make sesame snap peas, a deconstructed caesar salad, maple shellacked salmon fillets, 6 ingredient spaghetti and meatballs, and chocolate babka buns. We were given a booklet to take home with 8 recipes including the dishes she had made.

I can understand why Carolyn’s classes have been in high demand and have sold out continuously throughout the years. I have gone to several cooking classes at various locations including George Brown College, Longo’s, Kitchen Academy and Dish Cooking studio. Thinking back, my best experiences were the classes with a passionate, friendly and knowledgeable instructor. Carolyn Cohen was all that and more, and was able to pull off 5 dishes for a large group of us in just over an hour. I had my share of “not so great” instructors in the past. Our class was not hands on but we were only a few feet away from her in the interactive class.
Carolyn provided time saving tips and product backgrounds that I had found valuable. I didn’t realize that sesame oil has a high smoke point, and is an excellent oil for stir frying vegetables. Growing up, my family and I typically added sesame oil into marinades or would add a few drops to dishes before serving. Carolyn’s meatballs were phenomenal, and her “cheat” secret was to add store bought pesto to amplify the flavours and to save time on a weeknight.
All the dishes were delicious and healthy using quality ingredients. I enjoyed the meal, especially the pasta and salmon, as much as I learned how to make it.
I love the modern and intimate setting of the class, which will make the perfect setting for various gatherings.
