Event description
Gather with hundreds of fellow cooks for two days of hands-on learning and sharing cool experiences in the natural beauty of North Arm Farm.

About this event

During the final week of summer in 2022, hundreds of cooks will venture up the Sea-to-Sky corridor for two days and nights (September 13-14) of hands-on learning, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and the rare camaraderie that comes with seasoned chefs and new students and all in between sharing cool experiences outside the chaos of the kitchen.

Presented by the Chefs’ Table Society of BC in support of its upcoming, highly anticipated Culinary Arts Library project, Cooks’ Camp will be the first event of its kind in Canada, a special outdoor jamboree designed for some of the country’s hardest workers.

Cooks’ Camp will be anchored by seminars, real-time demonstrations and practical workshops that focus on the real world aspects of a cook’s life. From expert guidance on butchery, fermentation and farm-to-table agriculture to spirited presentations and round table discussions on business development, social media marketing, and pinning down the elusive unicorn of work-life balance, the entire itinerary is being structured by working cooks for working cooks.

Over the course of the 2-day event there will be a range of activities from farm tours, key note speakers, to a butchery demonstration, and demonstrations on some “lost” culinary arts. Inspiring guest speakers and instructors from near and far are currently being recruited for the campout, which will culminate in a special dinner on the farm that will likely go down as the biggest “staff meal” in Canadian history.

Attendance options will include early-bird tickets, two-day passes, and group rates available for restaurants that want to bring several members of their brigades to the event. The Chefs’ Table Society of BC not only asks restaurants to encourage their staff to attend, but also to help subsidize their attendance with fundraising dinners, events and GoFundMe pages.  

No matter the position - culinary student, stagiaire, dishwasher, commis, garde-manger, sous chef, chef de cuisine or executive chef - all kitchen and hospitality staff will be welcome at this special gathering, regardless of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation. Cooks’ Camp will be a fun, safe, and unforgettable experience for everyone -- a rustic, totally Canadian celebration of, for and by the people who make our lives so delicious!
