Team Building Activity - Festive New American

Master the basics to complete a celebratory meal amongst your colleagues.

Gather round with your teammates and take a closer look at a traditional roast dinner.

Came over for a Bachelorette Party, we had an amazing time. It was so much fun. Chef Joni is so personable. Contacting her was so easy, she asked lots of questions about the party before hand and tweeked our menu a bit to fit our girl's a bit more. Admittedly the girls were a bit unsure when we came in and Chef Joni was talking about a putting scallops in a martini with sauteed red peppers. They all thought she was crazy but the food drink was so fabulous and the best thing they had all night (maybe 'cause Chef Joni prepared this dish?).

Chef Joni was a pleasure to cook with. She was inviting and warm. I surprised my husband with the Italian cooking class for his birthday and we had such a wonderful time. Cooking the ragu, making homemade pasta and tiramisu was so special to us. We are looking forward to another class with her and definitely recommend her to everyone.

Chef Joni was exceptional. She was a patient and creative teacher. Our whole group really enjoyed the experience, including our teenagers. It was fun and I would recommend it as a gift and unique, edifying and fun experience for anyone!
