It’s New Year’s Eve, and there will be plenty of clinking and smooching at the midnight hour… but first, we must dine on an amazing feast. Reserve spots for yourself and your spouse, partner or friend at our Chef’s Table and in our kitchen at The Culinary Center of Kansas City for an exclusive New Year’s Eve culinary party!
Your table – and apron – await you in our kitchens, an intimate setting where you will learn to cook some outstanding dishes as we say goodbye to the old year, and welcome in the new.
It’s the best dinner and cooking class experience we have to offer – outstanding service, a unique venue and a 4-course dinner where, course by course, each dish is demonstrated by experience culinary instructor and award-winning Executive Chef Richard McPeake. His intention is to teach and inspire you to have the kind of relationship with food that he has come to know.
We know it’s all about the food, but it doesn’t hurt when your kitchen is located in a beautifully restored buggy barn from the turn of the century – an enchanting ambiance that beckons guests in and cozies them up for an intimate evening of conversation, marvelous aromas and flavors, and the ultimate dining experience. You’ll enjoy the atmosphere as you tie on and apron and work alongside chef while he teaches you how to create some of his favorite recipes.
You’ll begin with Coquille St. Jacque, followed by the Chef’s famous Grilled Caesar Salad with Parmesan Tuiles. Our elegant entrée this evening, Beef Wellington with Mushroom Duexelle and Bordelaise Sauce, will simply take your breath away. We’ll savor Roasted Baby Carrots with Dill Butter, seasoned and cooked to perfection. Plus, Pommes Parisienne with Brown Garlic Butter. Dessert will be a treasure of extremely decadent chocolate – Chef McPeakes’ Award Winning Chocolate Mocha Roll, to end of this perfect meal.
We’ll sit around the table to enjoy the beautiful meal that you’ve helped to prepare as you raise a glass of champagne and toast this outstanding New Year’s Eve meal. Then, we’ll send you on your way to make the most of your very own “midnight hour!” The Chef awaits you.
Register today to reserve your spots at this 4-course dinner on Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017, 6:30-9:00 p.m., with hands-on cooking class, including paired wines & a Champagne toast, romantic ambiance, excellent service and all in our unique venue in Downtown Overland Park.
