Any sort of group - friends, anniversary parties, supper clubs, co-workers, teams, Star Trek groupies who like terrestrial food, whatever group you want to put together – you can cook and eat a gourmet meal together. Whether or not you arrive dressed as an Imperial Leader from another galaxy - that’s up to you.

Also your choice? The menu.

In our hands-on cooking classes, your team will be divided into smaller groups - and each will work on a part of your pre-selected menu. After cooking together, everyone will sit and enjoy the meal and hash out what they have learned or socialize - depending on your preference. Discussions are always great over a good meal.

Events are held in our large, fully equipped professional kitchen - you decide the timing and duration, theme, menu, chef/instructor and any extras. (Size of group: minimum of 14). Generally the cost of a hands-on cooking class is as follows:

  • Tuesday - Friday: $95.00 per person plus tax and gratuity (based on min. of 14 people).

  • Saturday Night: $100.00 per person plus tax and gratuity (based on min. of 14 people).

Evening private cooking classes / special events are available Tuesday - Saturday, depending on availability.

For more information, please check out our Cooking Class FAQ / Policies, Cooking Class Descriptions, Testimonials, and Photos. In addition, please read the specific policies related to private cooking classes below.

Testimonial about a Staff Appreciation - Private Cooking Class Event

Neil and Myra,

Our staff were raving all day about what an amazing evening they had (and the moms and the one husband) last night at our class and dinner. Thank you for so much for having us. We all truly enjoyed ourselves, learned new and excellent things, and ate a phenomenal meal! Some of the ladies are already planning to attend future classes with you! And we will certainly do the same. Thank you for taking such great care of our "family" on our special night out with you. It was a wonderful and memorable evening. Delicious!

All the best!

Testimonial from Someone Who Organized a Private Cooking Class Demo / Bridal Shower:

Dear Myra and Neil,

I am writing this note to thank you for helping me make my future daughter-in-law the most fabulous bridal shower ever!!! It was everything I hoped for and more...and I'm tough to please! From the moment I walked in and saw the elegantly set table, I knew there was a special day in store for us.

The room was decorated beautifully, the appetizers were temptingly displayed, the cooking class demonstration was interesting and informative, and preparing and cooking the food together was so much fun! Then eating the DELICIOUS food was extremely satisfying, having the time to open gifts and play some games without feeling rushed was a bonus, and the portfolio filled with all the recipes of the day was the cherry on top! It was an absolutely perfect afternoon!

I wanted to do something a little "out-of-the-box" and having the shower at Elegant Eating was the perfect venue for that. I have been receiving e-mails and phone calls from my guests all day. I thought you would enjoy knowing what they had to say, so I'd like to share some of the comments I heard over and over again with you:

"That was the best shower I ever went to!"

"The food was to die for!!"

"What a clever idea...where did you find this place?"

"I can't wait to make some of the recipes for my family!"

"I'm looking for an excuse to make a party so that I can celebrate an occasion at Elegant Eating too!!"

What more could I ask for...it was not only a perfect day for me, but an enjoyable day for my guests as well. And most importantly, the bride-to-be was thrilled! She thanked me again and again for planning such a special event for her friends and family.

So thanks again for all you did to enhance my celebration and create a special memory!

Most sincerely,
Robin H.

Testimonial from Someone Who Organized a Private Cooking Class / Birthday Party:

Dearest Myra,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for assisting me to create a Surprise 55th Birthday party that amazed my beloved Frank as well as all of our guests. Every second of the evening was exciting, engaging, entertaining and memorable. Our guests were so impressed with the high level of professionalism, warmth and truly exquisite elegance that flowed throughout your venue.

The experience of cooking together was so much fun! In addition to learning so many new tips and cooking techniques, our group enthusiastically and happily co-created a four course meal that was literally a feast for the palate as well as the eyes! You and your incredible staff helped Frank's 55th Birthday to be one he will remember forever.

We look forward to booking another event at your venue in the future. And please know that I have and will continue to recommend Elegant Eating as the perfect venue for extraordinary events!

Warmest Regards,

Jennifer W,
Smithtown, NY

Corporate Team Building Cooking Class Participant:

Participated as a corporate team function one evening. Staff is awesome. We were given a brief overview, tips and menu review. From there we broke into groups and all cooked various items. Then they played and served us the meal. Really fun group activity!
