 It’s New Year’s Eve tonight and there will be plenty of clinking and smooching at the midnight hour…but, first, we must dine on an amazing feast!  Something worthy of celebrating the old and ringing in the new. 

We’re reserving a special place with your spouse, partner, or friend at our Chef’s Table and in our kitchen for an exclusive New Year’s Eve culinary party! Reserved for VIPs and special friends and usually tucked away in the kitchen, “The Chef’s Table” gets you up close and personal with the person who has chosen to spend his career studying and preparing food. It’s the place where the Chef can pamper and bedazzle his or her guests in a dining experience like no other.

Tonight, your table …and apron! - .await you in our kitchens - an intimate setting where you will learn to cook some outstanding dishes as we say goodbye to the old year and welcome in the new. 

It’s the best dinner and cooking class experience we have to offer – outstanding service, a unique venue, and a 4-course dinner where, course by course, each dish is demonstrated by experience culinary instructor and award-winning Executive Chef, Richard McPeake. His intention is to teach and inspire you to have the kind of relationship with food that he has come to know.

We know it’s all about the food but it doesn’t hurt when your kitchen is located in a beautifully restored buggy barn from the turn of the century – an enchanting ambiance that beckons guests in and cozies them up for an intimate evening of conversation, marvelous aromas and flavors, and the ultimate dining experience.

You’ll enjoy the atmosphere as you tie on and apron and help chef with some of the preparation while he teaches you how to create some of his favorite recipes. 

You’ll begin with savory Fondue, followed by the Chef’s famous Fresh Spinach Salad with Spiced Pecans, Strawberries and fresh-made dressing.

Our elegant entrée this evening, Beef Wellington with Mushroom Duexelle and Bordelaise Sauce, will simply take your breath away. We’ll savor perfectly paired side dishes, seasoned and cooked to perfection.  Dessert will be a treasure of extremely decadent chocolate – Chef McPeake’s Award Winning Chocolate Mocha Roll to end of this perfect celebratory meal.

Finally, you'll enjoy the beautiful meal that you’ve helped to prepare as you raise a glass of champagne and toast this outstanding New Year’s Eve meal to remember. Then we’ll send you on your way to make the most of your very own “midnight hour!”  The Chef awaits you.
