Team Building & Private Parties, Scottsdale

Imagine being in our kitchen where you and your guests arrive for your private class and a professionally trained chef is waiting to lead you through a cooking lesson. You and your guests will enjoy an experience cooking together (leave the shopping, prep & clean up to us) and sit down to enjoy a delicious meal you have all helped create!
We’ve helped host some wonderful parties over the years. And we’d love to help you host yours.

THEMED MENU CHOICES Choose the theme which best suits your group:
Groups choosing the Chopped class option will have their group divided into teams of 3 or 4 people. Each team will receive a market basket of ingredients which they will use to create an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. Teams will have a brief period to create a game plan and go to work creating three fabulous dishes with access to the Chef as an advisor throughout their cooking experience. Groups can choose to have their dishes judged and then dishes will be shared by the group at the conclusion of the competition!
We’ve hosted many different kinds of fun parties over the years including: Anniversaries, Bridal & Baby Showers, Birthdays, Family & School Reunions, Client parties, Corporate Gatherings Business Incentives, Singles Gatherings, Senior Activities & Social Gatherings. A cooking class can be a wonderful opportunity to meet people, be an ice-breaker & provide an interactive fun experience for groups of all kinds.
