Uncommon Café Holiday Cookie Party won’t leave Santa hangin’

Just like mom used to make, only without the rage-inducing kitchen clean-up.

VANCOUVER — On July 1, 2015, Lisa Leimanis and her husband & professional chef Luc made their dream of running their own business come true; they left their corporate jobs and opened the Uncommon Café — a café, commissary, and a commercial kitchen available for rent. Shortly after, Leimanis met Valentine Kitamura, owner of Tartine & Maple, at a local food market. Since then, the French-born baker has been offering a variety of cooking and baking classes at the establishment.

When asked about the philosophy of the café, Leimanis replies, “We’re really all about sustainability and homemade food. Our products are either made from scratch mostly following family recipes with fresh, organic ingredients or sourced exclusively from sustainable, local businesses. Even our take-out containers are bio-degradable.”

The idea for the Holiday Cookie Party, which will be held twice through December, was jointly developed between the owners and the baker. “We wanted to offer a different kind of baking class,” Kitamura says. “People today are very busy, especially around Christmas, and just want things done. So we’ll be offering a variety of doughs to choose from, as well as decoration and helpful tips and tricks. This way participants can just get creative and enjoy the fun bit of Christmas baking, try different varieties of cookies and of course take all they make home – without having to clean up the kitchen afterwards.”

Leimanis, who has already compiled her shopping list for the cookie decorations which ranges from chocolate chips and coloured sprinkles to candies and flavoured icings, adds, “There has been a lot of interest — the first class on December 4 has already sold out.”

One pound of cookie dough for shortbread, gingerbread, sugar cookies, or thumbprints is included in the $40 ticket price, but more can be ordered for $10. Private groups of at least six people can book their own baking session and swap different types of cookies. This class will most certainly inject a good portion of holiday cheer into Christmas baking for everyone attending — whether they join solo, in a group, or with the kids.

The Uncommon Café Holiday Cookie Party takes place on December 4 and 14 at the Uncommon Café. Tickets are available at theuncommoncafe.com.
