Two Women Cooking in the Old Days

Classes and Workshops

Did you know: the Doughgirls have a passion for teaching?

Yes, that's right and we love to share in the excitement and gratification that comes from cooking and baking from scratch. Our classes are committed to sharing our many years of culinary knowledge, telling secrets and tasting all the delicious baked goods and yummy foods that we make right here in our Comfort Kitchen!

As BIG supporters of local organic farming, we are proud to partner with UBC Farm on many of our classes, however some of our classes are organized directly with us, right here at the Bakeshop. Check back here regularly, or give us a shout, as we will be inspired to add new classes all the time with the changing of the seasons.
