Cooking School

Classes for every season! We run a Fall (Sept-Dec) and a Spring (February-May) season for our Kootenay Co-op Cooking School.

Most cooking classes are $30 for members and $35 for non-members and include a meal as part of the course fee. If you’d like to be informed of when earlybird pricing is available, sign up to receive our weekly e-news.

Cooking Classes are held at the Kootenay Co-op’s Teaching Kitchen at 777 Baker Street, Nelson, BC.


Registration for our regular classes begins at least 3 weeks before the beginning of the series. Pre-registration and prepayment are required and these classes fill up very quickly!

You may register in person at our Customer Service desk, or by phone with a credit card: 250.354.4077×205.
