Interactive Cooking Classes
What to Expect: This is an ideal way to have friends gather for a time of fun and food! This is not a formal cooking class, but more of a way to learn some ideas and simple techniques for a specific meal or theme. Invite up to 8 people to join you and put together your meal for the evening.
What will it cost? That will depend on the number of people. The chef fee is $250 plus the cost of groceries. Starting price could be around $375, plus tax, for 6 people, depending on the items we serve that evening. Williams-Sonoma offers classes for about $45-$60 per person.
What do I get for that price? I will come up with a menu, do all your grocery shopping and arrive at your home to prepare all the individual components of your meal and clean up all my pots and pans, leaving your kitchen ready to throw your party. During the party, I will demonstrate different techniques and tips in making the meal. Together with your guests we will assemble and plate the final parts of the meal. After the meal is served, I will gather my things and let you enjoy the rest of the night with your friends.
What you do: Invite friends! Make sure they each have a good knife and cutting board. Select and purchase any beverages you wish to serve for the evening. I will use all of your serving ware so be sure you have serving platters as well as plates, cups, napkins, flatware, water glasses and utensils for all your guests. It’s your party, so feel free to decorate and set up any way you like! After I leave, you can take your time to relax with your guests and load up the dishwasher for the night.
Any questions? Just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call at (865)306-6554.
