Finger Food, Main Course and Surprise dessert. Your wives would be very welcome to stop by for dinner.

The End Of Popeye’s Times… or Cooking With Kids

Invite your children with friends, must be between 8-14 years, with or without parents. The invitation could be for a special occasion like a birthday or just for fun. The menu will be discussed with you and decided by the parents. Up to 12 children maximum, 3 hours to cook and eat. We take time to talk with the children about the differences between fast food and fresh, real food. Children in our kitchen will learn that food is grown from the ground up. We will also talk about the different functions at play with the body and which foods should be avoided and why.

The Perfect Team Training

Cooking together is a perfect team training whether in the form of relaxing seminar or a team retreat. The participants learn by preparing a 3 or 4-course menu that we will tailor to the needs of the groups. As with everyday life, skills, organizing, ability and knowledge of human nature are relied upon as we work together. Our chefs will delegate certain tasks and kitchen steps to serve their menu on time. We will help create something that truly resembles group work.
