What To Expect

Upon arrival, you will be greeted with an "Aperol Spritz" cocktail. During the reception, you'll have the opportunity to settle into the space, meet your fellow chefs (both the other guests and our Culinary Brigade) and enjoy hors d'oeuvres.

Each guest will receive a booklet with the night's menu and recipes printed.

The classes usually begin with assorted demos and other information, and then transition into a "hands-on" preparation of the rest of the menu.

After prep, you then take off your apron and sit at the Grand Table to indulge in the night's cuisine. Depending on the guest count, the menu will either be coursed out with wine pairings or served family style with self-serve bottles of wine at the table.

Event Timeframe

Arrival for all public events is 6 pm. Hors d’Oeuvres & Arrival Beverages are enjoyed over the first 30-45 minutes, with the event beginning once all guests arrive (within reason).

Most events wrap up by 9 or 10 pm, depending on the number of courses. However, you and your guests are welcome to stay past that time to socialize!

Reservation Inclusions

All public events include hors d’oeuvres and a beverage upon arrival. Other inclusions fluctuate depending on the event. Included alcoholic pairings will be noted along with the night’s menu, listed as TBD until final selections are made. A fully stocked cash bar is always available.

Menu Substitutions

Prior to checkout on the RSVP page, you will be asked for each guest’s name and dietary restrictions and/or allergies. If there is a change after you have checked out, please call or email us. Almost all restrictions or allergies can be accommodated with advance notice, but are difficult to substitute for upon learning of the night of the event.

Attending in a Group

Please let us know if you are attending as a group yet signing up separately. For many events we have a seating chart, and we’d love to make sure you all sit together!
