At Savory Kitchen, friends old and new gather to celebrate food and wine. Food preparation, cooking skills, and wine pairings are all taught in an intimate and friendly environment. Challenge colleagues to a competition; celebrate a friend's birthday by preparing a four-course meal; hone your brunch-making skills with like-minded strangers; learn the art and science of pairing local wines with skillfully prepared cuisine. Our chefs and instructors believe in enjoying good food and wine and want to share their excitement. Join us!
We offer two types of hands on cooking classes:
Skills classes are focused on learning a specific skill or method of cooking. These classes are 2 hours long and are setup with individual stations and work surfaces. Many of the skills learned in these classes are based on individual styles, the instructors will circulate and help you master your technique.
Menu focused “Dinner classes” are based on a specific seasonal or local dishes. The class will teach you how to master three or four dishes to put together an entire meal. The stations will be going on simultaneously with chefs moving you between stations to learn different techniques. After the meal is prepped learn, reinforce your skills through wine pairings and enjoy your expertly crafted dishes with the small production wineries we’ve paired them with. Learn how to appreciate the finer accents of a dish through the wine it’s paired with and enjoy a mini class on wine pairings.
We offer three types of private events:
Traditional structure is hands on cooking of all three of four courses, with the help of a chef. Groups of 10 or less can do all courses together, groups 10-20 can split into teams and each take a course. We do not recommend this structure for groups larger than 25 guests. At the conclusion of the cooking time everyone hangs up their aprons and sits down for a lovely plated meal of the dishes they made.
Savory Kitchen Challenge is one course as a competition, groups split into teams and work together to create their own take on a dish. The other courses to makeup their meal are prepared by our Savory Kitchen chefs and served plated. The cooking competition concludes with a seated meal.
Chopped Challenge is one course as a competition as well but instead of making a specific dish, teams are directed to create a dish (appetizer or dessert) out of mystery ingredients found in their boxes. Teams have 45 min and many twists and turns through the challenge. Savory Kitchen chefs prepare the other 2-3 courses to create a full seated meal at the conclusion of the competition.
