Get Fresh with Stephane - Monday January 11

Granville Island MarketSeriously!  Get fresh ... produce that is, and meat and dairy, and sweet and savoury seasonings ... everything you need to prepare a world-class dinner with a world-class Chef.


That's right, private shopping and cooking lessons from the best of the best!


db Bistro Moderne Chef de Cuisine Stephane Istel invites you to rendezvous with him and a small group of other participants, at 4pm at the Granville Island market in Vancouver.


Cooking Class StephaneLearn what inspires a market-fresh meal and how a seasonal menu comes together.  Shop for dinner, then return, bags in-hand to the restaurant for a private cooking lesson at our sister restaurant Lumière.  Lumière is closed for private events on Mondays and Tuesdays, so you'll have the place all to yourselves.


Finally, sit down in our Private Dining Room or the exquisite luxury of Lumière, and enjoy the delicious fruits of your labours.


Cooking Class DishSpace is extremely limited (no more than 10 guests in the kitchen) so be sure to book your seat today.   The cost to attend and for dinner is a modest $150 per person for the excursion, the cooking lesson, and a three course dinner with wines paired by Sommelier Kevin Van Hullebush.  Taxes, gratuity and transportation not included.


To reserve, inquire, or order a Cooking Class Gift Card, please call Lumière Maitre d' Drew Walker at 604.739.8185 or email A credit card reservation is required at time of booking.


*An $85 per person dinner-only companion fare is being offered for friends, family and spouses. Companion fare excludes the shopping excursion and cooking lessons, but includes full service of the three-course dinner you help prepare, with the paired wines.  Taxes and gratuity not included.


Read head foodie Paul Kamon's account of his time in the kitchen with Dale and Stephane.  Get the recipes too...


"I am not a Chef, barely even a cook to be honest, but I attended Stephane's cooking class at the insistence of my wife.  It 'really' was fabulous. I had so much fun and I learned how to prepare the dishes in spite of myself.  The wine pairings were perfect and there was so much food.  So, she was right ... again"   -- AVM
