Holiday Parties /Private Cooking Parties


The Culinary Classroom offers a great option for Companies looking to do something different to enhance corporate culture. Hands-on Cooking Classes improve communication and boost morale, while learning new skills in a fun environment.

Book a date and bring your employees; it’s that simple. We help you design the Menu, shop and clean up! Be a guest at your own event and give everyone a time to remember. The fruits of three hours of labor are enjoyed by all at the end of the Class for a Formal Sit-Down Meal or a more casual Hors d’oeuvres Event. See our website for testimonials and pictures and call us to discuss this great idea for your next special occasion.
