Our private cooking parties let you design your own personal cooking class. You choose the menu for your birthday celebration, bridal shower, anniversary, corporate function or just a gathering of your friends.

We offer everything from a French Provencal dinner to rolling your own sushi to how to work with chocolate. Our spacious kitchen provides a relaxing, fun environment where you can learn a new skill, enjoy the company of your guests, all while preparing and sharing a delicious meal.

A typical party runs 2 1/2 to 3 hours and perfect for up to 12 guests. We welcome all skill levels. You and your guests cook a meal together under the instruction of a professional chef and an assistant chef. Then your group sits down to relax and enjoy your gourmet meal with a glass of wine or cocktail.

Call 646.505.5713 to book your own personal cooking party.

Are you looking for an original way to celebrate your child's birthday'

We offer cooking parties for children turning 4 or older in our kid-friendly kitchen. We have tables, chairs, and cooking equipment perfectly sized for chefs of ages. A wonderful way to celebrate for both children and teenagers, the honored birthday child even receives their very own chef kit!

A professional chef instructor and chef assistant teach each child how to make their very own pizza from scratch. The birthday party guests are very serious about their cupcake decorating!While their pizzas are in the oven, the children decorate homemade cupcakes baked prior to the party. The parties run for an hour and a half and are planned for maximum fun and excitement.

We provide plastic and paper goods, birthday candles, juice or soda, and recipes with the birthday child's name on it for each guest. You are welcome to bring paper products with a specific theme, music of your choice, and kosher refreshments for the adults. The ideal amount of children is 10.
