The Global Local Gourmet’s Kitchen Oasis Experience 

Learning to cook elevated humans from lone animals into increasingly intelligent, civilized groups, and though we spend scant time doing real cooking, we’ve become obsessed with watching people cook–a paradox that points to longing for a lost experience. – Michael Pollan

Kitchen Oasis Cooking Class Experience 

A modern day interpretation of the 17th-century French salon where an encouraging chef brings people together to captivate each other and enhance their repertoire of refinement by engaging in food, conversation, and other experiential endeavors.

-Upon arrival you will be presented with the chef’s Amuse bouche, a small treat to whet the appetite.

– The chef will go over the menu and reveal tips, demos, stories about culinary artisans and farmers, along with tales from the kitchen confidential

– Working in teams, the menu is prepared

After the dishes are completed, we will sit down to a delectable multi-course meal and deconstruct the meal, leave with recipes and resources about how to recreate the meal, and similar at home. Hopefully, guests depart with some new friends and have a gourmet bag of tricks to share with some old ones too!

Cooking Classes, Parties, and Customized Food Events are the perfect way to bring together family, friends, and colleagues, for memories they will not forget. Cooking together is an excellent way to celebrate special occasions and mix and mingle in an interactive way with new friends. We all know the most fun happens in the kitchen!
