Come celebrate your child’s birthday at The Gourmandise School with a hands-on cooking party! We offer a variety of fun filled party menus to choose from for kids ages 4-12. All parties are a hands-on cooking experience where our Chef instructor and support staff are dedicated to making sure your child gets to learn to make a delicious meal and enjoy it with their friends.

Parents can drop kids off and enjoy lunch across the way at The Curious Palate while still keeping an eye on the party!

Children are greeted upon arrival by our Chef and assistants and given aprons to decorate and take home. Kids are supervised through the entire party as they enjoy cooking in a commercial kitchen with their friends and family, creating delicious dishes to enjoy with everyone! If your kiddo is a fan of cooking shows such as Chopped or Master Chef Junior, we are happy to customize your event to include a “secret ingredient showdown”!

Parents are welcome to bring a birthday cake and we will slice and serve it for you. We provide all plates, utensils, cups, and drinks (punch and water) for the kids. We have the kids covered, not the parents. People not participating in the cooking process are generally not permitted in the kitchen area during the event. Parents are welcome to watch their kids from outside the kitchen through our glass doors, and pop in to take the occasional picture, but kids tend to get less distracted when they’re the only chefs in the kitchen 😉

We can also provide Gift Bags at an additional cost to reflect the kids’ culinary experience!

All kids parties are 2 ½ hours long.
Pricing: $950 for up to 10 children, each additional child at $75pp.
Maximum of 30 children ages 12 and under.
Over 20 children requires an additional chef for $450.
