Mrs Canuk and I are traveling to CN Apr 5 - 12 I read somewhere that there are cooking classes available being somewhat of a foodie I think this would be a good thing. Anybody know about these classes. Thanks
The Entertainment Team organizes two (usually) cooking demonstrations per week by a chef. Typically one is a dessert (e.g. rum balls or banana flambe) and one a dinner (e.g. curried chicken, or coconut rundown codfish, or curried fish and crackers).
They (the chef) will hand out a recipe, show the ingredients, demonstrate some portion (or all) of the cooking techniques, hand out a small sample, and answer any questions.
I suggest you also take the tour of the kitchen. Check out the activities board at breakfast to see when that happens. It was VERY interesting and I was blown away at how clean everything was. The pastry room will make your mouth water and the chef even gave me some of his own favorite recipes.
You mentioned looking on the activities board ... Just where is the "activities board" located?
There is a weekly activities sheet provided at CN in the check-in envelope that will show things such as the cooking demonstration.
However, as noted on the sheet in fine print, activities are scheduled to change and it is best to consult the daily postings.
In the past, such postings were at the entrance to Cassava (the main dining area) and Heliconia (the beach grill area). But on our visit last month we only saw postings at Cassava and (on a few days) in the Internet Cafe.

The activities board is located at the entrance to the Cassava Terrace buffet, on the right side as you are getting ready to enter. The side towards the bar. If they change anything or add anything for the day, that will keep you up to date. Also has who the entertainment is going to be at night or any other special announcements.
