Cooking in Ottawa

If you’re not up to crossing the pond and don’t want to stray too far, well the nation’s capital, Ottawa, may be the solution. Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa Culinary Arts Institute is a great weekend getaway. Since 1895, the school has been the culinary faculty of choice. A friend’s daughter went to Paris for a several week course, returned home with a portfolio of recipes, new chutzpa in the kitchen and a with her diploma, an apron and a knife set. Now you can’t get this 20-something enthusiast away from the stove.
