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!

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.

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.

Gluten Free, Vegetarian, and Vegan options available upon request. We are happy to provide small adjustments to our dishes, whenever possible, to meet individual participant’s dietary needs or preferences, but specific restrictions MUST apply to the entire group whenever accidental cross contamination can cause serious health consequences to any participant. 

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 (21Nov.’18/24Dec.’18/31Dec.’18). Please contact us for details.
