Private Dinner Party

Screen Shot 2017-03-03 at 1.07.01 PM.png

I worked with the hostess to create a unique menu & table top for a pop-up dinner in Scottsdale AZ. Pop-up dinner, also called supper clubs, are temporary spaces for Chefs to experiment and entertain . These events often operate from a private home, outdoor locations or a unique space.  Pop-up dinners have been popular since the 2000s in Britain, Australia, Italy and France but they are becoming more and more popular on the east and west coast of the US.  I absolutely LOVE creating these events and look forward each unique experience.

Girls Night Out_Private Cooking Class

This cooking class was requested by SR.  She has a group of gals that have known each other for years.  SR had taken on of my cooking classes in the past and thought it would be great fun to have her friends over for a "girls night out" cooking class.  I taught them how to perp and cook a 5 course Italian meal...and they got to eat each course along the way.  We started with a signature cocktail...a winter Sangria...and omg...we had a few laughs for sure.  They left with a full belly, a big smile and the knowledge and recipes to create this dinner party again:)

Quantity:
Purchase

Friends often say, If I cooked like you I'd weigh 800 pounds!  After thinking about i was like...no you wouldn't...but I should explain why. I've decided to share a few of my secrets with you...and the good news is...it's really pretty simple!. I will be hosting a series of Healthy Start classes beginning in January where I will share how I prepare easy, DELICIOUS, low calorie dishes ahead of time for the work week...that allows me to eat almost whatever I'd like on the weekend!  You know how I love good food...so you know these will be yummy, right?!

The first class will be dedicated to soups and stews!  Soups are great this time of year because they are filling, warm and make great use of winter produce.  I have collected the best of the best and am excited to share these three with you!

Butternut

In this class I will teach you how to prep, prepare in advance, freeze and even make these into Dinner Party worthy courses.  We will start with a Butternut Cumin Soup.  OK, I confess, I'm addicted to this right now.  I even served it as a first course for Thanksgiving Dinner this year!  The family went nuts for it!  Even those squash haters!  How much do I love that?

Second, we will be preparing and dining on an Italian Beef Stew that's amazing and for the third I've decided to leave it up to the class...each participant can vote for a low calorie Italian Wedding Soup, Hearty Chicken Tortilla or an Oven Roasted Tomato!  I will also be serving and sharing a signature Cocktail and other snacks along the way, I call them my Healthy Hacks:)

If your interested in having a friends night out class, contact me to reserve this date, or we can find another date that works for you. This class will be limited to eight.
