Let the Cooking Begin!

 

Guests arrive and enjoy a complimentary fruit and cheese platterand a chance to chat and transition from the day to cooking time. This is followed by a brief lecture from our chefs, covering the recipes and techniques for cooking your meal. If you’re breaking your guests up into teams, we’ll do so now. Each dish from the menu you’ve chosen will have a station set up with the recipe ingredients and essential tools.After cooking for approximately an hour to an hour and a half, the food is served and everyone shares the delicious dishes that they so skillfully prepared!
