A BBQ Master Class with All-Star Chef Andrea Nicolson
Join Top Chef Canada All-Star, Chef Andrea Nicholson for an epic day of Backroads and BBQ. Learn from this bad-ass BBQ queen the mysteries of rubs, marinades and the secrets of smoking “low and slow”.
Ride along with Chef Andrea as she visits her favorite local producers, farms, and friends across Durham collecting ingredients and fresh produce for your incredible meal.
Then, join Andrea back in her kitchen to see first-hand how to butcher a full hog into the preferred cuts for a professional barbecue competition. You’ll get in on the action and help out with every step.
Next, we feast on an epic BBQ meal like no other. After all this deliciousness, you’re taking home the tricks, tips and recipes to make you a budding barbecue pitmaster.

Bring your appetite, our Food Tours + Adventures have you more than covered for Food + Drink. Bring a camera (or charged phone) for pics + memories. Bring your questions, we love sharing stories and recommendations for great places to eat + drink.
As for pace, while we set-up our Food Tours + Adventures with all our partners in advance, as small independent businesses, our partners will be busy juggling their regular customers and our tours, so we may face a tiny wait or eat standing at certain (small) stops. It’s part of our commitment to supporting local food, and showcasing the best eats, sips and bites of the city.
All our Food Tours run Rain, Snow or Shine, so please dress for the weather. Only our Escape the City: Canoe Paddle + Dining Adventure is subject to weather cancelation. We recommend purchasing TicketGuardian protection if you think you might be affected by weather or travel changes.
Culinary Adventure Co. experiences have been designed to highlight the best and most signature items from each of our vendors, shops and restaurants. Our partners showcase what they LOVE and their STORY – so ultimately their most delicious food + drink.
While we can accommodate severe food allergies (i.e. Nuts, Shellfish), Vegetarians and those who do not drink Alcohol, we cannot make substitutions for any other dietary concerns such as Gluten-Free, Celiac, Dairy-Free or Vegan. Dietary concerns + allergies must be highlighted in advance with your ticket purchase.
If you HAVE SERIOUS FOOD ALLERGIES, or questions please email us or speak to our Ticket Team before purchasing tickets for any of our Food Tours or Culinary Adventures.
All Culinary Adventure Co. Food Tours + Adventures are 100% REFUNDABLE, up to 1 hour before departure for a nominal fee, from our partner TicketGuardian, based on their rules + regulations. When you purchase your Culinary Adventure Co. tickets, you’ll have the option to opt-in to protect tickets or opt-out of coverage. Your choice, your comfort.
If you choose NOT to protect your tickets, they will be non-refundable, however, if you notify Culinary Adventure Co. or Eztix (our Ticketing Team) in advance (min. 48 hours) your tickets can be converted to an e-Certificate or exchanged for a new date (based on availability) – for no charge.
