I just attended my first Parties That Cook event with my company and had the greatest time! We participated in a Kitchen Challenge event and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a unique team building idea. Everything was prepped and ready to go before we got there. The sous chefs as well as the lead chef were so friendly and helpful. Also, they were very quick with posting photos and emailing recipes after the event.
The staff was engaging, the food was delicious, and wine definitely helped everyone ease into their work. The staff made sure everything was kept clean and tidy, making the cooking a lot less stressful. I would highly recommend this company for their outstanding customer service as well as great party planners

I expereinced one of the best nights in a long time. It begun with wine tasting to get things going. Everyone was chill and outgoing both on the girl and guy side. We began cooking at tables of 4 or 5 then we would switch it up to give us a chance to talk to everyone. By having an interactive cooking class really let everyone joke around- Being a guy I thought it might be on the martha stuart side but it was far from it. Highly recommend it-

The staff was not only very knowledgeable but very professional and yet fun at the same time. They gave us advice anytime we asked for it but they also didn't step on our toes and really let us go with our imagination.
Every person we worked with was great, from the initial setup to find out what our budget limit was, to the chefs, every single person really cared about us and wanted to make sure that we had a great time and a great time it was. The whole concept is great, you split up into 2 teams, you have 4 main items that you have to work with (which we all voted for beforehand). You take these 4 items and come up with a theme, and you just start cooking! The chefs give you a bit of advice here and there but overall the entire creation is yours.
Once the cooking is done, you plate the food and the chefs are now the judges of the food, a winner is declared and the boasting starts. It was one of the most successful offsites we've had here at our company and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to have a great time cooking with friends, coworkers, or family members. Parties That Cook rocks!

I recently went to the singles event in Chicago and it was an amazing time. I convinced some of my friends and coworkers to join me and they would say the same. Its a great change of pace from the bar scene. When you meet new people in a setting this easy going everyone has fun. Great food, wine, and people is a great combo!

I recently attended a cooking event with Parties That Cook. I was blown away by the experience. The chef had so much knowledge and gave a lively interactive Food Network style demo before we all cooked an yummy meal. My favorite was the Ahi Tuna Tartar in Sesame wonton cups. It was so easy to make and you can impress anyone that comes to your house for dinner. They would think that you spent the entire day in the kitchen. I had such a great experience that my husband surprised me with a cooking party by Parties That Cook for my birthday. We had a blast, again! My guests said that they have never been to such cool party. I also got the Parties That Cook Appetizer recipe cards for my birthday. Needless to say that there are tons more easy & quick to make recipes there. Cheers to Parties That Cook!

The Parties That Cook team did a fabulous job at our company party. They had terrific energy, a sense of humor and really created a festive environment. They handled an easily distracted crowd, provided enough help to successfully create great tapas and fostered and easy-going, fun atmosphere, making sure our guests all had a great time. Of the parties that we've done over the past few years, this was the best yet. Our group had a fantastic time and will remember this party for months to come.
