I had Cook & Party come over last night as a surprise for by husband's birthday, We had a blast. Working with Chiara and Christine couldn't have been easier. They were extremely professional from start to finish. Prior to the evening Chiara was very quick to respond to emails and was very helpful picking a menu. The night of the party they were on time and made the evening a lot of fun. Both have great personalities and were very interactive with all of us the entire evening. The food was delicious

We reserved with Roberto for my friend's birthday party last week and it was such a great time! Everything was super easy and fun. On top of that the food was great and Roberto was very funny and patient with our group.

Great cooking lessons with two friendly and lively chefs for dishes you can't get at a restaurant. Five stars!! Chiara and Christine taught our group of 6 how to cook real, home-style Italian food.

I booked Cook & Party for a friend's bachelorette party this weekend and it was a fantastic experience. The bride-to-be said it was perfect. We cooked the gnocchi and the lemon tarts, all while drinking wine and cocktails. They made sure everyone had fun and got to participate in the cooking as much or as little as they wanted to. Everyone had a great time and the food was delicious.

What a fun idea for a party! We had great wine, good friends, and amazing food, who could ask for more? Also, I am a terrible cook and these chefs made sure that I learned a few tricks around the kitchen. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for something a little different for their next party.

This is the best plan if you want to have a chill evening with your friends. Chiara will take over your kitchen and bring everything you need (food, supplies, utensils). She will teach you and your crew how to make delicious home made Italian cousin, making it seem so simple, that it will motivate you into cooking for sure!!

We had such a unique and special evening with Chiara and Christine. They made it really fun and easy to learn how to make these incredible dishes (but not hard, so I can try on my own later). This would be such a great gift for a bridal party or for someone special- my mom would have loved this for mother's day.

What a GREAT time my friends and I had during our Dinner Cooking Party.
This was exactly what we were looking for - friendly and great teachers, easy instructions and yummy food - to top it off great company! Both ladies were so nice and easy to work with from beginning to end. They are very accomodating and always in constant communication to make sure our needs were met.
I can't wait to do this again with my girls. Such a great way to spend any occassion whether it's a birthday celebration or just a get together with friends. It was lovely!
Thanks ladies xo

Cook & Party was the best cooking class I've ever taken!
I contacted Chiara to do an in-home cooking party for a birthday gift. Setting up the details was such a breeze and she was very accommodating to our schedules! We opted for the 2 mains, 2 sauces, 2 desserts. We took this class over a month ago and since then even went to Italy on vacation and still think this meal was one of the best we've ever had!
All the ingredients were fresh from Whole Foods, she can bring any equipment you don't have on hand and an assistant which was Roberto. They were both so kind, knowledgeable and eager to teach you all the cooking techniques as well as make sure everyone has a great time.

As a new mom, I am constantly looking for ways to be more productive in my kitchen, and, of course, to expand on my recipes. Tagliatelle with ragu sauce was a quick, easy complete meal that Chiara and Christine made simple and painless.

We hired Chiara and Christine to host a 60th birthday party as we wanted a unique way to celebrate. The details of the party were actually a surprise for the guests. Both Chiara and Christine arrived early and had all the equipment and ingredients needed to prepare the meal. They were kind enough to find a meal that accommodated me as I am a vegan. It was wonderful to participate in preparing and then eating a meal that we created from scratch.

I hired Cook & Party 2 weeks ago for a business celebration. We were all so impressed with the way Chiara handled a small apt with 18 people and was capable to make everyone feel part of the process and entertained. The food was delicious, the cooking lesson was fun and very well structured. I highly suggest Cook & Party to everyone who loves food and wants to grab a couple secrets in the process :) Well Done!

Takes the stress out of cooking to have two Italians guide you through your dishes, and everyone in our group, from people who had no cooking experience to people who cook regularly, all enjoyed it.

What an incredible experience! Was invited to a dinner party by a friend, and little did I know, I was actually going to be involved in the cooking process. For someone who is a little timid in the kitchen, I was a bit hesitant, but Chiara's thurough cooking knowledge and excellent teaching abilities put that all to rest. Within minutes I was engaged and excited at the opportunity to cook!

I cannot say enough great things about this amazing experience. My friends and I had a dinner party last week and made delicious spinach & ricotta ravioli. Chiara is a passionate couisine teacher with the gift to making simple and easy even for people no good at cooking (like me). I'll recommend 100%!
