Guests will be divided up into five cooking groups; be giving aprons, hats and gloves; and be put to working making one of the five dishes. Each group will have a different learning experience since each group will be making a different menu item for the dinner.

  • Sushi: Sushi chefs teach rolling sushi and sashimi. (This station may rotate.)
  • Boucherie (Butcher): Learn how to trim a beef tenderloin for filet mignon.
  • Pasta: Guests learn to make tender noodles (and not from a box) with fresh basil pesto.
  • Patisserie (Bakery): Guests get to work with ingredients, such as chocolate, mousse, and other sweets.

When everyone is finished cooking, guests have a to talk with the chefs to learn about things you’ve always wanted to know about cooking. The prep work will take about one hour.
