Cooking Classes

An Interactive Cooking Experience
Chef By Request has a new state of the art production facility in Lisle - and you are welcome to be a part of the action! Executive Chef David Miller, a long time member of the American Culinary Federation and Nationally certified Executive chef, invites you and your colleagues to experience an interactive cooking event like no other.

We are excited to offer a hands-on, interactive cooking experience that allows you and your entire group to not only learn about the variety of foods, but to prepare and serve them as well.

Learn How to Cook From the Best
Classes are customized to create a theme menu and are interactively instructed by our Chef. Most of the time, prep work has been preformed by our staff prior to your group's arrival. When your group arrives, they receive a brief orientation of the menu and kitchen operations. Next, the kitchen is all yours! The Chef will divide your group into small production teams that must prepare and serve their portion of the night's menu. Along the way, drinks and cocktails are served and our Chef may even play his food trivia with you!

What to Expect
Your evening becomes quite educational, but you hardly notice because you are working to out-present your friends and colleagues! By the end of the night you have learned great food knowledge and techniques, you have laughed and sipped fine wines, you have created and served a portion of the exciting menu, and best of all you were a guest that enjoyed all the fine flavors of the evening. Our Chef instructs side-by-side with you to ensure that you are on track and having fun!

Get Ready to Have Fun
Our interactive cooking labs (or "kitchen parties" as we like call them) can run from 3 to 5 hours. Our facilities will accommodate a minimum of 10 people and a maximum of 25 people. The times and costs to host one of these events are mostly dependant upon the customized menu and beverage selections. If your group is just looking to let loose and have some fun, your kitchen party can be very casual with a loose agenda and fun style themed foods and drinks. For a group that is more wine and food trendy, we will customize a more formal surrounding complete with service and in kitchen seating. More focus and concentration is taken on the menu, and the Chef's educated palette may pair your creations with a selection of balanced wines.
