Pizza Parties

Pizza: One of Italy's greatest foods, and a truly fun dish to make as part of a group! If you're looking for an informal way to bond with your colleagues or connect with your friends, book a pizza party.

Here's how it works: when you first arrive, you'll enjoy a selection of just-made finger foods with wine and beer. Then, after about 30 minutes, your group will divide into small teams; each team will make pizza dough from scratch, then roll out and top their dough using the ingredients that strike their fancy from a colorful array of vegetables, cheeses, cured meats, and more. Once the pizzas are baked, we'll slice and serve them to your group family-style at our lovely dining table, so everyone can taste everyone's creations.

We'll also serve a green salad and roasted seasonal vegetables, and finish up with a homemade dessert and espresso. Wine and beer, as well as sparkling water and soft drinks, will be provided with the meal. The cost is $135 per person plus tax and gratuity. We can host this sort of event for up to 30 people (the minimum is just 12 people), and the cost includes half a bottle of house wine per person and 1 beer per person.

This is a great party idea for groups that really want to be very hands-on in the kitchen and who prefer small teams for the entire cooking process. A bonus: You'll get to take your pizza dough home after the event, since you'll be baking off dough that our chefs will have prepped the day before (one of the tricks to really delicious, airy pizza is that the dough has to rise overnight at cool temperatures).

PIZZA PARTY MENU (groups of up to 30 people)

  • Assorted Pizzas - you choose the toppings!
  • Mixed greens in balsamic vinaigrette
  • Roasted seasonal vegetables
  • Homemade dessert

Pasta Parties

Pasta: So many shapes, so many sauces, so many possibilities. And so much fun to make! A pasta party is as hands-on as it gets. After the initial finger foods and wine reception, you'll work in small teams to create two of Italy's most delectable pastas from scratch, each with their ideal sauce.

After the cooking is done, we'll serve both pastas to your group at our lovely dining table, along with a green salad, roasted seasonal vegetables, and a homemade dessert and espresso. Wine and beer, as well as sparkling water and soft drinks, will be provided with the meal.

The cost is $135 per person plus tax and gratuity. We can host this sort of event for up to 40 people (the minimum is just 12 people), and the cost includes half a bottle of house wine per person and 1 beer per person.

Premium Finger Foods and Prosecco Reception

To elevate your private cooking event to an unparalleled level of luxury, consider adding on our Premium Finger Foods & Prosecco Reception: instead of house wine, we'll pour everyone a glass of bubbly Prosecco upon arrival, kicking off the festivities in high style, and we'll serve five delicious finger foods (instead of three).

Finger foods vary from phyllo rolls, crispy ravioli, skewered shrimp, vegetable frittata, bruschetta, homemade focaccia, herbed filet mignon skewers, crunchy polenta coins, and more... Our chefs let their imaginations go wild and come up with delectable bites! You can see some examples by clicking on the pictures below!
