Market Tours + Cooking

The founder of WHyyc has been around the globe doing market tours & cooking classes — from New York to Madrid to Paris to Istanbul to Florence to Rome to Copenhagen & beyond! But some of her very fave foods & markets are right here in our own backyard. Calgary has a great selection of both farmer’s markets & grocery stores. You can find a whole variety of whole foods to nourish your mind & body.

Need help navigating the market, your own pantry, or your kitchen? Or, looking for a fun girl’s afternoon or night in? WHyyc does healthified cooking parties, teaching you & your friends some of our fave recipes in nibble & sip on in a hands-on fashion.
