Dear derrickangle:   http://www.nwcav.com/   Talk to Chef Tony 604.876.7653 he might be able to create some special program for you But trust me one month may bring some sophistication and knowledge or may sharpen your home cooking skills but will not make you chef Good luck

At thier website they emphasise more on tourism related activities and pictures rather academic...
