Ambrosia Adventures In Cooking was started 25 yrs ago by Maureen Goulet. Some of the best Chefs in Vancouver have shared their culinary secrets with Ambrosia students. Guest chefs have included: Michael Jacob, (Le Crocodile), Pierre de la Cote, (Seasons in the Park), Ernst Dorfler, (The 5 Sails), Karen Barnaby, (The Fish House Stanley Park) and Andrew Court, (Wall Centre Hotel) to name a few. Maureen has also hosts many cooking classes at various local hotels such as; The Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel, The Waterfront Hotel, The Hotel Vancouver, The Bayshore Hotel and the Sutton Hotel as well as other locations outside Vancouver.
Another event Ambrosia has created is the "Men Only' Valentine Cooking Class, which men learn how to make a gourmet meal for their wives/significant others for Valentine's Day. More Info
Singles classes have also become popular with our clientèle. Men and Women of similar ages come to cooking events where they can learn how to prepare great recipes while having the opportunity to meet other like minded individuals to share the evening with. The singles' events have inspired a few relationships and have even lead to a number of weddings! More Info
For the corporate client we has developed the Mystery Box Competition. After a day of meetings your employees are treated to a Cook-Off. Every team must create one entree from the ingredients at hand then each group is marked on strict criteria evaluating presentation, taste and team effort. Always lots of fun and a great team building event. More Info
Looking for a great idea for your next staff party? We will organize your guests into groups to produce one part of a gourmet dinner that all will share following the presentation. This has been a great ice breaker for staff parties especially when the spouses are invited. Everyone gets to know each other while preparing a gourmet feast!
Maureen Goulet resides in West Vancouver with her husband Maurice and their two children, Carrie and Matthew who have all been very supportive and involved in the business over the years.
