We are excited to announce our non-golf event this year is a cooking class with John Cirillo, C.C.C, one of Toronto’s finest chefs, hosted at Cirillo’s Academy.
Not only is this a cooking class, before you begin to cook, Chef Cirillo will demonstrate how to properly sharpen a knife and how to fillet a chicken/cornish hen.
Afterwards the group will prepare a meal together. As you will return to the golf course for dinner, the meals you prepare in the afternoon, will be donated to a local shelter supported by the Cirillo Academy.
John’s role in promoting the culinary arts has been recognized by his peers with awards and medals in culinary competitions. He is a two-time honoree of the Escoffier Society as Toronto “Chef of the Year” (1998 and 2003). In addition, as Team Captain of Culinary Team Ontario at the 2004 Culinary Olympics, he led the team to victory, winning 2nd overall (regional) as well as two Gold and one Silver medal. Despite these credentials Chef Cirillo does not behave like Chef Ramsey on Hell’s Kitchen. He’s a personable and approachable Chef who is passionate about his work, his family and life in general.
Cooking & Giving! Making a difference – together.
