Welcome to Well Bread Culinary Centre

Making Home Cooks. Better.

OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19 Plans underway to re-open September 2020

On March 18, 2020 Well Bread temporarily closed due to the State of Emergency declared for the Yukon Territory because of the Corona Virus Pandemic.

The March classes that were canceled due to this closure will be the first to be held.

If you are unable to attend the rescheduled class date, a gift certificate will be issued to you for a future culinary class of your choice that fits your schedule. 

Like most other small food businesses, our industry has been monumentally impacted and how we do business in the future is changing. 

I will strive to make my cooking, baking and mixology classes the best I can keeping your, mine and the Well Bread staff's health and safety the top priority. 

Enjoy your summer and we look forward to welcoming you back in the fall with new classes and old favourites as well.

Please continue to support local food businesses by ordering take-out, ordering groceries online for pickup/delivery (don't forget about the smaller places like Bigway & Super A Riverdale & Porter Creek, Riverside Grocery and all the local meat/food suppliers who are currently still in business), not shopping in groups (offer to babysit for friends and family so only one parent needs to go to the store), washing your hands often or using hand sanitizer if soap and water is not available. Support local small businesses instead of buying online from the industry giants - those small businesses keep your community going strong.

Protect one another and yourself. Stay home if you are not feeling well. Respect physical distancing and don't judge others for wearing PPE in public. Be nice.

Thank you.

Chef Cat McInroy, Owner

What's Cooking

Open and ready for classes!

By Catherine McInroy | January 10, 2019 |

In December, 2018 we held our soft opening and hosted many classes from pasta to pastry, appetizers to entrees. The verdict is in: Well Bread Culinary Centre is exceeding all expectations of what our guests thought a cooking class would be! We had kids in here as young at 6 making pasta and encouraged adults…

Cooking up a new business

By pwsadmin | June 29, 2018 |

January, 2018, my husband and I started to renovate the building that once housed The Boys & Girls Club in Whitehorse; and before that, it was the A.J. Forsythe Steel building. The warehouse portion of our building has been in downtown Whitehorse since the 1950’s when this area of town was the industrial area. If you look on the side of the warehouse you’ll see an old fire hose connector. This building housed the only fire hydrant in this area up until early 2000’s!

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect when I arrive?

We suggest you arrive a few minutes before your class starts. You’ll be greeted by our friendly staff, shown where to hang your jacket, change your shoes (please bring indoor shoes in the winter)and be given your apron to use during your class. A welcome snack and drink will be offered while you get acquainted with the other guests in the class. We will start within 5 minutes of the scheduled start time so please be on time so you don’t miss any instruction.

Two alcoholic beverages (wines and beers) are included with the price of your ticket. Additional alcoholic beverages are available by the glass for a price of: $8 wine and $7 beer. 

What can I expect in a Hands-On class?

Your hands will be in the ingredients so be prepared to stand while working. Wear comfortable, close-toed shoes and clothing suitable for working in the kitchen (tight sleeved or short-sleeved shirts). Your long hair is best tied back or feel free to bring a head cover if that’s what you prefer. You’ll make and eat your culinary creations on site and if you get too full, we’ll give you a 100% compostable take-out container to go home with you. You’ll be provided with an apron and hand towels to use during your class; all linens will be gathered at the end of class.

What should I wear to a Hands-On class?

Closed toed shoes are mandatory in professional kitchens and our hands-on classes require the same. Ensure your shoes are comfortable as you may be standing for extended periods during a hands-on class. Comfortable clothing with tight fitting sleeves (or short-sleeves) will help keep the ingredients off your clothes. Baking classes may involve handling flour which will show on dark coloured clothing. We provide you with an apron to use during your class. In winter please bring indoor close-toed shoes to change into.

What can I expect in a Demonstration class?

Sometimes our students just want to sit and watch, eat and drink and that’s fine by us! You’ll be encouraged to ask questions during the demo’s and, of course, you’ll eat, drink and visit with your fellow classmates. No special clothing or footwear is required for a Demonstration class; just sit back, relax and enjoy all the flavours coming your way!

Where do I park?

We have several parking spots outside our centre. Also, there is ample free street parking on Ogilvie Street and 6th Avenue (½ a block from our centre). Please do not park in the alley that fronts our building. There are several residential properties surrounding our centre. Please be mindful not to park in or block our neighbour’s driveways.

How long are the classes?

The class length is noted in the class description. Most hands-on classes vary in length from 2 - 3 hours, depending on the instruction. If a class duration indicates 2.5 hours you can expect to be finished close to the 2.5 hour time.

Class length also depends on the skill level of the students which can vary greatly. If you need to leave at a certain time, no problem, just let Chef know and they'll help you finish your instruction and take your foods with you. 

I’m being dropped off, can my ride stay and watch?

Sorry, only registered guests can stay during the class. We have limited space and most classes run at full capacity.

How many people are in a class?

We keep our classes small so the Chef/Instructor can give every guest personal attention during the class. 16 people or less is our preferred Chef to student ratio. 

Do you serve alcohol?

Yes, we are a fully licensed facility and registered guests will be offered wine/beer/spirits and non-alcoholic options during their class. Some classes are specifically designed as pairings; however, non-alcoholic options will always be available to our guests. Only registered guests 19 years and older are served alcoholic beverages. Yes, we check ID.

Your safety is our priority. Any guest exhibiting signs of intoxication will be invited to try our non-alcoholic drink options and asked to please find a safe alternative way home. We will gladly call you a taxi and work with you to ensure your vehicle is parked in an appropriate location for easy retrieval when you are sober.

The price of your regular class ticket includes two alcoholic drinks. Additional glasses are available for purchase: $8 wine and $7 beer.

I can’t make it to my class, what are my options? Do you give refunds?

You may cancel your class purchase up to 7 days before your class date and we will happily issue you a full refund. Cancel your spot 6-3 days before the class and we are able to refund 50% of your class fee. Failure to show up for class forfeits any and all refunds. 

In the unusual event that Well Bread Culinary Centre cannot deliver the class on the date promised, the class will be rescheduled and the original purchase will carry forward to the rescheduled class. If the rescheduled class date does not suit the guest; a full credit towards a future class of the same value will be issued to the original purchaser of the ticket. 

We do understand emergencies and sickness happens; however, we have to run our classes even if you can't make it. You are welcome to send someone in your place, but we cannot issue a full refund or carry your payment to another class. 

If you have questions, please call or email our Centre (867)633-2665 or chef@wellbread.ca to speak to one of our helpful staff. We do not answer the phone during class.

Allergy and Dietary Requirements

Please let us know as soon as you book you spot of any dietary restrictions. We are happy to ensure your requirements are met. Individuals with nut allergies should be aware that there may be traces of nuts in our facility and foods prepared and served at the Centre. We take precautions to avoid cross contamination; however, our facility is not “nut-free”. If you require an epi-pen due to your allergies we encourage you to bring your own to class and alert our staff that you have one so we are prepared to assist you if necessary.

Why are some classes priced differently?

Classes are priced depending on ingredient costs and payment to the instructors. All employees at Well Bread are paid a living wage. We use as much local product as possible and pay top dollar to those producers to help keep them in business. Buy local and you support locals!

We try to be generous with our portions and, depending on your appetite, you may have leftovers to take with you. We give you 100% compostable or reusable containers for your leftovers. You are welcome to bring your own containers with you. We will happily put them through our sanitizer/dishwasher if you wish - just ask one of our kitchen helpers and they'll take care of that for you.  

How old do I have to be to take a class?

Every cook is different and so is every person. A good rule of thumb for determining if your child is ready to take a class by themselves: Is your child mature enough to be left home alone and allowed to use the stove during that time? If the answer is yes, then go for it and book your child for their culinary experience! We have classes for kids accompanied by an adult, and classes for early teens and young adults who are responsible enough to come on their own. We're not a babysitting service. If your child is causing a disruption or behaving in a manor that is unsafe for themselves or others, acting in a manner that is disruptive and negatively impacts the enjoyment of the class for the other guests your child will be asked to leave immediately and their class fees are not refundable.

How can I tip the Kitchen Assistants and Chef?

We work hard to give you the best experience possible at Well Bread. If you'd like to show us your appreciation for the efforts we made, we'd be very grateful. All tips are shared equally between the guest Chef Instructors and the Kitchen Assistants. We have debit/credit tap, just let us know if you need it for the gratuity.

Chef Cat (the owner) does not receive any of the tip money even if she taught your class. All gratuities are split evenly between all the staff that help Chef Cat give you one of the best culinary experiences that Whitehorse has to offer.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
