What’s included?

This class is sold per person. So, 1 ticket to class ($100) = 1 person attending. Each person will practice knife work alone, however you’ll share a station with another guest to make the soup. If you buy 2 tickets, you’ll be working with the person you’re attending with. If you buy 1 ticket, or an uneven number of tickets, someone in your party will be paired up with another guest to make the soup.

  • Hands-on instruction from professional chefs
  • 2 drinks per person from our bar -- we offer a rotating selection of wines from small producers, local craft beer and seasonal cocktails. Additional drinks will be available for purchase.
  • A booklet of recipes from class
