'17 APRIL DINNER SHOW

All MONTHLY DINNER SHOWS reflect local seasonal ingredients that are put together into two or three courses plus dessert, and are designed to inspire guests with many new ideas for menus and dishes to recreate at home.
All courses each evening are prepared before you with a lively exchange of food talk, and then you savor the plated results. (Alternatives for allergies and diet restrictions are made with advance notice.) A relaxing three hours later you leave satisfied wondering which of tonight’s dishes you will cook first!
Cost is inclusive of the pairings of each course wines. Menus are subject to availability and may change without notice.
Our gift shop is open after the shows only for our dinner guests, and many of the ingredients and tools we use in the show are available for purchase.

Private Events

Any of our shows or class experiences can be designed just for your private party. (*) Imagine  having a room of your friends watching and dining during the Dinner Show or with aprons on and hands into the dough during a private PASTA 101 semi-hands-on class. Private experiences can be arranged by speaking directly with one of our representatives. See our CUSTOM EVENTS page to learn more about the possibilities.

 

(*)Private groups of ten or less may join the regular scheduled classes and are expected to pay the regular price per person, gratuity optional.  Groups of 11 or more constitute a private event, and our pricing for those experiences depends upon the date, number in the party, type of experience, and of course, the menu. A service fee is always applied.
