Ever host a dinner party and find all your guests congregating in the kitchen? Not that you could blame them. After all, why not go right to the source of good food and drink? At Tante Marie’s the kitchen is the party. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings, Tante Marie’s clears its counters for its fabulous “Party Classes.”

What you do is invite 20 to 30 friends or colleagues to your own private cooking party at Tante Marie’s. Usually you arrive at 6:30 p.m. to enjoy substantial snacks with wine. After about half an hour of socializing, your instructor will explain to everyone the menu for the evening, which has been especially designed for your group. He or she will then demonstrate a couple of cooking techniques. Then, everyone ties on an apron, gathers their ingredients, and gets cooking. At about 8:30 pm, once you’re done sauteing and pureeing, you’ll sit down to a sumptuous three-course meal. After savoring the last bite of dessert, the party ends around 10:30 pm, with students taking home new recipes and cooking skills.

Whether you’re planning a surprise birthday celebration or a corporate team-building event, our professionally trained instructors will work with you to guarantee a great time. We can also arrange valet parking for you and your guests.

A dinner menu might consist of:

  • Roasted Asparagus with Pecorino Sabayon
  • Boned Leg of Lamb with Black Olive Tapenade
  • Artichoke and Potato Gratin
  • Strawberry-Rhubarb Compote with Lattice

$150 per person, with a minimum of $3,000*
