Cooking is an Art. We Make It a Party.
A unique culinary combination of a hands-on cooking experience and a pampered dinner party, Bespoke Cuisine's Cooking Parties are a big hit with epicureans and beginners alike.
Chefs from the Bespoke team lead groups through preparing a multi-course meal. After the lesson, participants retreat to the loft-like dining room and enjoy being served the meal they created.
All through the lesson and meal, the team imparts tips, facts, and guidance about the food, methods and preparations used. It's a fantastic opportunity to ask the experts and to learn the tricks of the trade.
Coooking parties are held at Bespoke Cuisine's location on Restaurant Row where clients have the opportunity to learn in a working commercial kitchen and then retire to the gracious dining room to enjoy the meal they prepared. In warm weather, our doors open onto Randolph Street for a wonderful city dining experience.
