Each dish has a mystery basket with four ingredients that must be used. Learn how to decide to pair foods. And learn some neat kitchen tricks too!

Everyone sits down to dine together on their unique and flavorful meal and voting anonymously on the best dish. Enjoy food, fun, and new friends. This is great for anyone from singles, to date night, to friends, to Mom & daughters, to co-workers. Participants are welcome to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy if they wish. A minimum of 4 participants needed to run this session and it only costs $49! Think of that…you are getting a full hearty and delicious meal AND a cooking class.
