They came. They cooked. They left with a much clearer idea of what Parties That Cook does. What am I referring to? Each year, Parties That Cook offers complimentary events for potential clients. We essentially stage a full-blown hands-on cooking party just for event planners interested in our event services.
This season, we opted to provide our guests with a taste of “Taste & Technique”. Over 100 guests arrived to experience our newest event type specifically designed for large corporate groups. And we were ready…
Ready at the welcome table. Hi Kelle!
Dogpatch WineWorks was an excellent venue to accommodate our large group.
The aprons were set.
The antipasti platters were ready.
Even the wine glasses eagerly anticipated the arrival of guests.
Our Exploration Stations were prepped and looking particularly inviting. These activities included a “blind” taste test, an interactive herbs and spices station, and tricky trivia!
And now, on to the Cooking Stations…
The evening’s menu included a variety of savory small plates. At each station, guests were encourage to help make spring rolls (with new-found knife skills), fill, form, and fry dumplings, grill pizza, and roll sushi. For dessert, guests made and enjoyed sweet crepes filled with dulce de leche. Yum!
Before we knew it, the place was packed! To our delight, guests were just as eager to sample each recipe and participate in the cooking as we were to teach them.
Of course, our chefs rocked it under pressure.
Guests were pleased to have learned new skills.
And equally entertained by chef shenanigans.
The chefs clearly had a ton of fun, too!
The food was absolutely delicious! Our 100+ guest chefs did a fantastic job, and many would not stop raving about their favorite recipes. Overall, the event was an incredible success. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible, from our partners, to our staff, and even our lovely guest chefs.
