Private adult cooking parties

jer z girl Jun 26, 2011 03:55 PM

I am looking for a restaurant/cooking school that offers private cooking parties with a chef at their facility - not that will come to your home...I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding and am looking to schedule a party as part of the bride's bachelorette party. We are located in Monmouth County, but aren't limited to this area as we will be able to travel. Thanks for any suggestions!!

    a Google search brought up several possibilities:

    basically any cooking school or culinary supply store that offers cooking classes would be an option.

      I know this is available at Taste and Technique in Fair Haven and I think you can do a night at Mumford's in Tinton Falls as well. This is a fun idea! Enjoy!

        Sue Sell has been conducting cooking classes with local and national chefs in Colts Neck for over 20 years (I met her in Mumfords early years in Long Branch in the early 90s)...

          The Cooking School at Ninety Acres Culinary Center, in Peapack. Check to see if they do private parties.


          If you are willing to travel to Manhattan, the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) does private cooking parties.

            Classic Thyme in Westwood hold such parties. http://www.classicthyme.com/

            and I believe Kings Cooking Schools in the stores do also.

              one more vote for Sue Sell's Cook N Tell.
              Her classes are great....12 people around a huge island in her kitchen. Hands on. BYOB if you want.

                I am willing to offer my services as the cooking instructor and entertainment for the evening. I will teach you how to bake a cake and jump out of the cake at your party!
