Are you sick and tired of mushy potato salad with too much mayo and not enough flavour? Come learn how to make German “Kartoffelsalat” (potato salad), and kiss those bland, store-bought brands good-bye forever! My recipe is a simple one, but tasty. Don’t worry if you’ve never prepared a meal before, this one’s easy and fun! We’ll begin with a welcome snack and tea, during which I’ll share a little bit about my German-Canadian culture, and explain the significance of the ingredients and process we’ll be using. Then we’ll prepare everything from scratch, while we learn a few simple and fun German words and phrases. After the “Kartoffelsalat” is ready to eat, we’ll enjoy the fruits of our labours while overlooking the beautiful view of the city skyline. Don’t worry - we’ll be sure to pack some leftovers for you to take along with you if you want for a tasty snack later on, and a reminder of our delightful afternoon together!
I’m a first generation Canadian; I learned to make “Kartoffelsalat” from my German mother and grandmother (“Omi”). Since childhood we’ve served this special family take on a German classic at Christmas and Easter. But it’s great for a picnic, too, or anytime! My background in education and tour guiding make me an excellent host for guests of all ages and experience levels - we’ll have a great time together.

All ingredients, cooking utensils and other kitchen items necessary for this dish will be supplied.
This experience takes place in my home in the city’s west end, in my top-floor suite overlooking Lake Ontario and the stunning Toronto skyline. The recipe we learn to make is old country, but the view is all modern, and you’ll definitely want to snap a few photos of the view to the CN Tower and glittering water!
