Celebrity Chef Events

The Institute of Culinary Education in New York runs the most successful private cooking event program in the nation.Hands-on Instruction and Demonstration Events

ICE can arrange a culinary extravaganza for you and your clients or friends. We'll bring in one of the country's hottest chefs to prepare a fabulous dinner especially for your group. You'll learn secrets, get a chance to ask the questions you've always wanted to ask, and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime meal. You'll begin with passed hors d'ouvres and end with a full-service, sit-down lunch or dinner, including wine.

Two formats are available:

Hands-on Cooking Parties:

Here, you and your guests actually don aprons and work side-by-side to help the chef with the cooking.

Professional Demonstrations:

Your group watches and listens while your chef cooks dinner right in front of you in our demonstration kitchen outfitted with an overhead mirror.

Minimum and maximum number of guests, prices and formats will vary from chef to chef. An ICE coordinator will work with you on this and other details, such as dates, times and menus.
