Private Events

Private events at The Gourmandise School allow your group to have a hands-on experience whipping up delicious dishes with guidance from a private chef instructor for an unforgettable three-hour event. Prepare a scrumptious three-course savory meal chosen from our marvelous menus or customize your own. Or, indulge in a dessert class making tasty treats to satisfy your sweet tooth, and take home bites for the week.

All our events are BYOB – please feel free to bring your own beer or wine. NO CORKAGE FEE. You can grab a glass of wine or beer at The Curious Palate next door.

Gift Bag Option: We can create custom gift bags for your event as well. Let us know the details of your event, and we will work with you to create wonderful gift bags for your guests to take home.

Typical events range from 10-24 people for a hands-on experience. We are able to accommodate larger groups at times as well.  You can create your own theme or we’ll design a concept especially for you. Pricing for private events starts at $1,200 for up to 12 people.
