Be a guest at your own cooking class or party!

When friends and family come over, they usually gravitate to the same place... and you know where that is. So, we've moved the party into the kitchen! Treat your guests to a private baking or cooking event designed just for you. Perfect for birthdays, showers, holidays, anniversaries, or any event you'd like to make unique. They're not only fun, everyone will also learn a few "tricks of the trade" as they create something delicious.

This is a new entertainment option in central Connecticut. Of course our chef knows how to cook, but he's also an experienced culinary arts instructor. That's what separates this from a catering business.

I will help you design a memorable event choosing from several themes, ranging from artisan bread making or personal pizzas, kabobs, pasta bar, to a complete gourmet meal.

Everything is provided: ingredients, supplies, equipment, tablewear, plates and bowls, wine goblets, and especially our logo aprons for your guests to wear.

What's the difference between a party and a class? Good question! For a party, I do all the work (with an assistant when necessary), so you can focus on your guests. That includes kitchen prep and setup before they arrive and cleanup afterwards. For a class, more of this gets transferred to my students.

Cost depends on the theme and format. Generally, there's a fixed fee of $150 to $250 plus a per-person charge of $10 to $50 depending on whether we're baking breads or preparing complete gourmet meals with steak, shrimp, lamb, duck, etc.

I require a $150 deposit to reserve your date and can accept credit cards via PayPal (account not required).
