Overview of Services

Welcome to our Demonstration Kitchen!  We are pleased to offer use of this space in 3 ways:  


(A) Community cooking demonstrations are available twice a month on Wednesday evenings at 5:30pm.  Demonstrations are hands-on and appropriate for all levels of cooking abilities.  Participants are provided with recipes, ingredients, tools and guidance with which to prepare seasonal and locally-sourced (whenever possible) foods.   Then take a little time to savor your creations in the good company of all the participants and instructors -- there is enough for everyone to eat a meal.  Registration is required and capped at 15 total participants.  Limited to adults age 18 and over. 


(B)  Personalized cooking demonstrations are available for groups/clubs or individuals.  We consult with you/your group to create an original demonstration suited to meet your specific needs.  Everything -- recipes, ingredients, tools and guidance -- is provided to you... just show up ready to enjoy cooking and eating! 


(C) Demonstration kitchen space rental is available for groups/clubs or individuals.  We provide the space and common kitchen equipment, and you bring the food and the people, and do the clean-up.
