menu ideas for your cooking party

 

Our events include the preparation and cooking demonstration of three courses. Here are some options for you to consider.

All food will be prepared and cooked, fresh and from scratch, right before your eyes, 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!

Different elements? 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 intended to be featured for the whole party. 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 agreedthe quantity of food prepared together will provide "generous tastings" instead of "full portions". The cost per person will reflect this with a 10% discount. 

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