CookandDate is a Montreal-based company that organizes cooking classes for singles. While it may sound strange to cook a meal with a total stranger, the fun and interactive events provide a different way for singles to meet and network instead of navigating a packed bar or club.
The CookandDate events take place weekly and often highlight a special cuisines or dish such as oysters or Dim Sum. The events are led by a host who will hand out drinks while the private chef initiates a fun culinary activity to break the ice. Guests can then chose to help in the preparation of the meal or simply sit back and enjoy the meal while networking with other guests. Unlike other dating events, there is no pressure for participants to connect and all of the classes are meant to be both fun and stress-free.
With an even male to female ration guaranteed at every event, the classes provide an exciting new way for singles to meet potential partners.
