    Pre-Order Your
    Thanksgiving Dinner!

    In this challenging year, our gratitude list includes the fact that we actually get to cook MORE here in our kitchens at The Culinary Center of Kansas City. While we still offer cooking classes and culinary teambuilding events (both onsite and virtual), our Curbside Dinner Events and Branded Frozen Meals are primarily what have allowed us to stay in play during this “not so tasty” time. We are also grateful for YOU for supporting this KC small business.

    So let our chefs do what they love, and let us prepare your Thanksgiving Dinner! Pre-order your Turkey Dinner and  pick it up a day or two before the big day. Since we put so much love in our dishes, we are only making a limited number of these dinners, so pre-order soon to reserve yours.

    Each meal serves 6 hungry pilgrims and comes with easy-peasy reheating instructions, as well as 6 creative Thanksgiving-themed place cards for your dining table and a fun activity designed just for your guests/family to enjoy around the table, because we feel pretty strongly that what happens around the table is pretty darn important. 

    We’ve even asked one of our favorite table-top design instructors, Larry Wheeler, to partner with us and make some creative Thanksgiving Table Centerpieces for pre-order as well. Just order yours and pick it up when you pick up your Turkey Dinner. How’s that for handy?  (You’re welcome!)

    When pre-ordering online, let us know (in the comment box at checkout) if you would like to pick-up on Tuesday, November 24th or Wednesday, November 25th, from 10am – 6pm. We’ll have it ready and bring it out to your car… or feel free to come on in our Kitchen Shop to pick it up. 

    Don’t be a big ole’ turkey and wait to place your order!

    Meet Your New Best Friend…

    A Charcuterie Board For Any Occasion

      …my wife and I just made dinner of the charcuterie tray, along with a bottle of Napa Valley Chardonnay. Excellent! I know you all are trying to find ways to generate income while business is slow, and this one works. I hope you get lots of orders. We occasionally have salami, cheese, olives and nuts as dinner on weekends, so this fit right in.  …really liked the spicy mustard! Can I buy more of that in the kitchen shop? The cheeseball was good too. I ate an entire dried fig for the first time.. oh, and since I was one of the first 25, I got the the truffles – yes!  Now, for another glass of wine….”    – Roger B.

        Each of these chef-prepared gems includes: hard salami, mortadella, a luscious little power-packed cheeseball rolled in toasted nuts, a perfectly sized layered torte made with fresh basil pesto, sun-dried tomato pesto, cream cheese and goat cheese, dried figs, olives, nuts, spicy beer mustard, assorted crackers, napkins, serviceware and wipes.   

        And here’s the real kicker… while your board will be refrigerated and ready to go when you pick it up, each board may also be frozen until ready to use. (What did she just say? Yup. Just pull this baby out of the freezer, let it thaw a bit and you’re ready to rock.) Add a bottle of perfectly paired wine (see our selections for purchase when you order your charcuterie board) or a KC Variety Six-Pack of locally crafted beers (ditto)… and the rest of the party is up to you! 
        Each charcuterie board serves 2-4.  
        $35 / charcuterie board
