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.
