The 1909 Culinary Academy

The 1909 Culinary Academy

THE 1909 CULINARY ACADEMY IS

Canada’s first

chef training facility with a focus on Agriculture and the myriad of techniques used to cultivate the food destined for your chef inspired menu. Fittingly named after the year it was built, The 1909 Culinary Academy, has been converted into a chef-owned, restaurant style kitchen of our private, hands-on culinary institute and presents a lesson in community heritage stewardship. Inside, original details are everywhere, and include the blackboards, decorative tin ceiling, lighting fixtures, trim, doors, wainscoting, hardwood floors, and original dual entry foyer.

After being closed to elementary students in 1965, the building was maintained for regular community events by the Townline Community Club, the school has always doubled as a social gathering place.

Our little corner of rural Ontario is known as the Dairy Capital of Canada, a region that produces more than 15% of Ontario‘s milk. We’re not just known for our “dairy-air” though. This region is well known for its livestock and diverse range of crops including organic beef, lamb, pork, and poultry, all raised within a mile or two of the Academy.
