    This was our first evening in Charlottetown. The Lucy Maud Dining Room was within walking distance from our hotel. The four of us left agreeing we had a special time. We had a table directly looking over the waterfront and watched sailboats and the sunset.

    We received competent and friendly service. We each ordered one of the four small plates offered. That was all we required for dinner. The vanilla crème brulee provided a fine finish to a night we will remind each other of for years to come.

    Today, we made it a point to recommend the Lucy Maud Dining Room to others in our tour group.

    We ate here in the Lucy Maud Dining Room last evening for the first time. The staff was very knowledgeable and attentive to detail. The food was incredible! Thank you!

    This is a fun, well organized, hardworking, super interesting day. I did Flavours of the Island today at the Culinary Institute in Charlottetown. Chef definitely knows her stuff and is patient and amusing. We made everything and the kitchen sink; pulled pork, stuffed pork tenderloin, curried chicken, biscuits, beer bread, scallops, mussels, lobster and more. We tasted and shopped, chopped and stirred, and learned dozens of tips and techniques. Its a great day!

    Wow. This is an experience not to be missed if you love cooking. The facility is top notch. The head chef, Ilona, and our assistant chef, Meg, were fun, challenging and amazing. I just loved the whole creative experience. Our day started out with a visit to the local farmers' market co-op; a true farmers market with produce and meat farmed locally and sold by the co-op. This is followed by a visit to a local specialty store and back to the kitchen!! Yeah. The fun started as we were teamed up in small teams of 3-5 people sharing the joy and responsibility of preparing food by recipe. Well, when that part was over, the true fun and adrenaline rush started. The question "what do we do with the leftovers?" started the real cooking frenzy!! Yeah. The whole team of about 16 participants worked hand in hand just like in a true professional kitchen. And just like the same, the organizers provided clean-up staff for us. Again, top notch!! If you love this kind of experiences, go for it!! I will do it again!!

    We did the Bootlegger's Experience boot camp on Saturday, July 26, 2014. OMG! It was amazing. We had so much fun cooking and meeting new people and of course letting our inner bootlegger out for the day. The staff is 100%. The facilities are top notch. I'd encourage anyone to take in any of the culinary boot camps. You will not be sorry. You can thank me later :)A big thank you to Karen, Ilona and Meg. Next year, same bat time, same bat channel!!

    We did the Island Flavours demo today with chef Ilona and thoroughly enjoyed it. After two fun- and food-filled hours we left feeling inspired to try the great recipes. The wine, the goody bags, the quantity and quality of the food really exceeded our expectations. This is highly recommended!

    What a treat working in a huge professional kitchen with all the bells and whistles. I wanted to spend hours in the walk-in refrigerator smelling all of the fresh herbs and fondling the seafood. Spending the day cooking with the pros was a thrill. Plus you don't have to do the dishes!
