Classes & Experiences
Together with Gail Norton of the Cookbook Company, Judy travels to France every spring and Italy each fall teaching Calgarians about the regional cuisine. We have always drawn inspiration from French cuisine: the food, the methods and the style. When we reflect on our own cooking styles, we often find it is rooted in the French country tradition.
Judy also teaches a number of classes throughout the year at her commercial kitchen and at The Cookbook Co.
