CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - July 17, 2013) - Thanks to a new partnership with Alberta Health Services (AHS), ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen is now offering cooking classes at the Wellness Kitchen in the new South Health Campus located in Calgary's southeast.

"This partnership with the South Health Campus Wellness Kitchen allows ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen to offer exciting cooking classes to another area of Calgary," said Sarah Francis, Manager, ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen. "With classes continuing to be held at our popular Calgary Learning Centre downtown, a first-rate cooking education is now accessible no matter where people live in the city."

Two types of cooking classes will be offered at the South Health Campus Wellness Kitchen:

  • Noon-Hour Classes: Guests bring their own lunch and watch an ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen chef instructor demonstrate the preparation of three or four dishes in the class theme. Each class is 45 minutes.

  • Hands-On Classes: Our chef instructors provide guidance as guests get into the action and work with their hands for this 90-minute class.

"The South Health Campus wants to encourage southern Albertans to embrace a wellness mindset and our partnership with ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen is one way we'll achieve that goal," said Melissa Hyman, Wellness Centre Manager at the South Health Campus. "This partnership gives us the ability to showcase chefs and inspire our patients and the community with cooking and nutritional skills so they can make better shopping, cooking and eating decisions."

The August calendar features 10 courses, including sessions on ribs, summer tapas, Mexican cuisine and Everyday Delicious Breakfasts. To register for cooking classes, visit us online at or call 403.245.7630.
