The Kilted Chef, our friend Alain Bosse and his 'Culinary Companion' Johanna have been hosting a Culinary Class nearly every day at 3pm on their Facebook Page from their home outside of Pictou, NS. We've been cooking our way through Corona-19 with them and really enjoyed this Maple-infused soup he featured on April 6/20.
See his post and watch the video for a guided class!
