Toronto gets its first grilling academy

Toronto has plenty of cooking classes - everything from basic knife skills to butchery to pizza-making - but no culinary discipline offers quite as much outdoor fun, or as many novelty-apron-wearing possibilities, as open-air grilling. Aspiring pitmasters, your hour has come; the Weber Grill Academy is now open in Vaughan and ready to show you the hot coal-lined path to greatness.

The school's schedule is rolling out three-hour classes starting at the end of the month, featuring instruction from Michael P. Clive, a local chef known for his TV appearances. Class levels range from beginner (burgers, pizzas, s'mores) to more advanced classes (chicken, ribs, corn) to a smoking-oriented course that will teach you how to smoke your own brisket to perfection. Check out their site for more details.
