Rooks to Cooks is a unique cooking school based out of Toronto, Ontario. It was founded by Chef Shai Mandel in 2017 as an extension of her services offered since 2015. Through many of our mobile programs, Rooks to Cooks assures that no matter where you live or how hectic your schedule is, our programs and services will be accessible. Rooks to Cooks was developed to be first and foremost student-centered and flexible. We know that each student is unique with their own learning goals. For this reason, we make sure that any course, class or program offered through Rooks to Cooks accommodates all students and their individual needs. Our mission is simple: through our various cooking education programs, we will help our students become more independent and reach their fullest potential, in and out of the kitchen.
The programs offered by Rooks to Cooks began with in-home private lessons and have now expanded to include children’s cooking day camps in the summer, in-home private classes, after school programs and school workshops. We recognize that learning new skills, especially cooking, can be intimidating; that’s why we build our programs to be fun, inviting, as well as intensive. Our programs and services always emphasize themes of healthy eating, and teach our students how to live a fulfilling healthy life. No matter your age or skill level, Rooks to Cooks is your recipe for success!
