I've always perused through Anna's website before, thinking of a reason and time to try out their cooking classes. When one of my girlfriends got engaged, I immediately thought this would be the perfect opportunity to sign up for one of their private cooking sessions and see their studio. Founded by Mari Loewen, Anna is a local magazine and private event studio specializing on providing home/kitchen inspiration, hosting private events and offering specialized cooking classes.

My girlfriends and I attended a pasta making session. As soon as you step inside the studio, we were greeted by Mari who was so lovely to allow me to take shots of the beautiful space. To start, Mari prepared a cheese board and offered wine, while she explained the menu for the night to the class. We ended up making a chorizo potato and corn chowder and fettuccine carbonara; both of which were so delicious and easy to make! At the end of the night, we were handed a copy of the Anna Magazine that had the recipes of the dishes we made. The cooking class was a wonderful way to learn a thing or two about cooking (something I definitely need a hand on, hahaha!) and also a great time to hang out & meet new people. Classes are normally scheduled on a monthly basis featuring various dishes. If you live in Winnipeg and interested to try something new, go to the Anna site and check out their latest cooking classes for the month of April.

  6. mmmm such a great idea for your friend! I do need to learn to be more adventurous with my own cooking I always get swayed by baking instead of what should be for dinner. A few of my favorite recipes are from Anna I always hunt the old issues down at the thrift;)

But theeeen I probably spend the same amount during the weekend anyway, so I'm just being a ninny haha. What an awesome way to celebrate your friends engagement- I bet you she was so excited! This is such a fun girlfriend activity- you've definitely made me feel a little more resolved that I need to buckle down and try this before summer comes :) Also, that dress and color on you is completely fabulous.
