menu ideas for your cooking party

Our events include the preparation and cooking demonstration of three courses

All food will be prepared and cooked, fresh and from scratch right before your eyes, for you and with you, in your kitchen!

We make occasional changes according to the season and our inspirations, so come back and see what's new, every now and then!

Substitutions? See the "A LA CARTE" option at the bottom of this page. We will be happy to listen to your ideas or concerns, and help you build your very own special menu for your party!

More details on our formula can be found in the "GENERAL INFORMATION" page,

Menus are featured for the entire group. Pictures are meant to give you an idea of the finished dishes. Results might be different at every party.

For groups of 15 participants and up,  unless differently agreed,  the quantity of food prepared together will provide "generous tastings" instead of "full portions". Please contact us for details on applicable menus and pricing. 

Surcharge and special conditions apply to holiday and pre-holiday dates. Please contact us for details.
