Steakhouse, Pizza & Theme Nights

The Institute of Culinary Education in New York runs the most successful private cooking event program in the nation.The Steakhouse

If you've ever wanted to know the difference between porterhouse and New York Strip, or how to make the perfect pommes frites, our steakhouse events are for you!

Say the word steakhouse, and you start to think of great, hearty meals and good times. That's one of the reasons why ICE's steakhouse classes have been so popular.

We offer a selection of four different steakhouse themes: American, French, Italian and Asian, each featuring a cocktail or an aperitif that complements your menu.

Your evening will begin with passed hors d'oeuvres and an open bar of wine, beer and soft drinks, which will be served throughout the evening. After about 1/2 an hour, we will divide you into groups. Each group will cook a different style steak based on the theme you have selected. When you are finished cooking steak (about 1 hour), you will be seated and our waiters will serve you the fabulous meal that you and your group made. A sample of each steak style will be served to each guest – no one will leave hungry!

Pizza Cooking Class & Events

Add one part fresh pizza dough, one part grated mozzarella and our professional kitchens and what do you get? The ultimate pizza class! If you ever wanted to try your hand at tossing like the pros, here's your chance.

You and your guests can select from a variety of foccacia, calzone, and stromboli options. You'll prepare a variety of toppings, then learn the secrets of shaping and assembling your own delicious pizzas – plus get a chance to bake them in professional ovens. You'll also prepare a classic salad and a favorite Italian dessert to round out the meal.

Wine, beer and soft drinks are served throughout the evening. You'll work with one of our event counselors to plan a menu from a range of options (see reverse side). And at the end of the night, guests will leave with fresh dough so they can make their own pizza at home.

Once the cooking's over, you'll enjoy a fabulous Italian buffet!
