Immerse yourselves in an unforgettable one-on-one experience which will explore the within our kitchen, where you'll get a taste of every day meal preparations using products and kitchen equipment readily available to most everyone!

 We will be making a plethora of items that we make and serve daily at the restaurant—a

which you’ll quickly master and be able to use for years to come!

We will discuss and demonstrate real life techniques, tips and shortcuts for the everyday person.

Guests will leave with the knowledge to quickly provide quality meals like our award-winning restaurant.

While we fully appreciate and respect the “food art” world and all other current trends, we focus on the true staples of the culinary world—

focusing on the taste, delivery, economics and ease of the home (and professional) chef.
