Dinner Parties

Do you miss eating out?  Has your social life come to a standstill?

Why not host a dinner party in the comfort of your home as we prepare and cook a delicious gluten free culinary extravaganza.  You won’t have to ask “Is this gluten free?” or be limited by what is offered on a gluten free menu.  Instead, enjoy a delicious, memorable, entertaining  dinner party with friends and family in a fun “hands-on” gluten free cooking class.  The cooking will take a couple of hours and then the eating pleasure begins! As we cook, we will share gluten free culinary tips.  No worries, no stress, no fear…only laughs, smiles and a feast of delicious, savory home cooked meals. You won’t believe it’s gluten free!

Such an event is a great way to celebrate an anniversary, birthday, special event or simply as a way to gather friends together. Cooking events can also  be used as fund-raisers, team-builders, business events, get-togethers for gourmet food/wine groups, etc.

What’s necessary?
- Space in your kitchen for minimum of 8 people – groups are limited to 12 persons, including the host(s)

- Basic cooking utensils (we will send ahead the list of equipment needed).  If there is anything you don’t have, we can provide.

How long does the lesson last? Cooking classes may take place in the morning or in the late afternoon. Meal preparation takes about 2 hours. For a morning lesson, cooking starts around 10:30 a.m. and we will eat around 12:30 – 1:00 p.m. For evening lesson, cooking starts at 5:30 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner (about 2 hrs. later).

What will we cook? Our menu includes three courses: appetizer, main course with side dish(es), dessert.  We will send ahead the menu, recipes and shopping list prior to the cooking events  so that the host can print out the recipes for the guests prior to the lesson. Hosts are asked to do the shopping prior to the class. We arrive at the host’s home ahead of the lesson to make sure that all is in order and to see if anything else is needed.

Cooking class fee? Hosts buy the foods (shopping list sent ahead). Each guest pays $85 and minimum number of 8 guests is required, other than the hosts (who do not pay for the lesson). Please note:  we can offer classes to fewer than 8 persons but a minimum fee of $85 x 8 is required in any case.
