Cooking Parties

Have you ever hosted a dinner party and found 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!

You can invite up to 40 guests for a Cooking Party that everyone will remember forever!

The party starts at around 6:00pm offering substantial snacks and a glass of wine. After about half an hour of socializing, Tante Marie will go through the menu that will be especially designed for your group. She will then demonstrate a couple of key cooking techniques that you will need for the evening and then everyone will tie on an apron and get cooking. When you are done sautéing and pureeing, everyone will sit down to a sumptuous three-course meal. After savoring the last bite of dessert, the party will end around 10:00 pm, with students taking home new recipes and cooking skills. The cost of the event is $150 per person with a minimum of $3,000. This does not include the cost of the wine, which we can order for you or you can bring yourself. Call 415-885-1654 today to book your date! A $500 non-refundable deposit is required.

The proceeds from these parties go to
