Louise Peacock has been studying and practicing the art of cooking for the past 50 years. She successfully completed a series of cooking courses with Culinary arts teacher, Etta Sawyer and has not looked back since.

With a Portuguese /Italian/French background, Louise has always blended conventional recipes with Southern European cooking, giving a unique flavour to her various dishes.

In these trying times of conservation and invention, Louise wanted to share her knowledge and abilities of cooking complete meals in Crock pots/Slow cookers.

Crockpot Cooking Courses Available Upon Request

One on one or group lessons - your choice - evenings or weekends.

Prices available upon request.
You get home after a long day at work or school; you're tired; you're hungry and when you check the 'fridge - it's empty except for some stale bread and some old peanut butter. You grab the bread and peanut butter and have that for supper........


Instead - take this four part cooking course, which will give you lessons on making soup, 2 entrees and a dessert.
Where: The Grange, 1921  Dundas Street West, Mississauga. ON L5K 1R2

This beautiful Heritage building is the home of Heritage Mississauga, and they have been good enough to offer their facility for us to give cooking lessons.
