Cutrara’s Kitchen


Social cooking is formalized at Cutrara’s Kitchen. Here you will learn how to prepare simple, impressive dishes with masterful techniques in a casual hands on cooking class. You get to enjoy the fruits of your labour between courses. Take away menus are provided from each class. Everyone – even the unenthused – departs Cutrara’s having had a good time.

Usually corporate, family and birthday groups of 8-18 people book Cutrara’s for an intimate social; however, during Savour Stouffville, Cutrara’s has designed 5 special event dates where individuals, couples, or smaller groups can RSVP and share the experience with enthusiastic neighbours and strangers. Guests bring their own wine; there are no corkage fees.

Frank Cutrara is a renowned executive chef with over 38 years of experience in the culinary arts. He has been a resident of Stouffville for 20 years. In fact, Frank’s converted home, which feels like an old world Tuscan kitchen, used to be the home base for a local day care operation named Mother Goose. Frank is exceptionally nice and welcoming. We started referring to him as the ‘gentle giant’ during our interview.

Prior to owning and operating Cutrara’s Kitchen, Frank was executive chef at the prestigious Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham for seven years. There he oversaw kitchen operations and a staff of over 50.
