A delicious experience guaranteed to spice up any occasion.

What’s a better way to spend your time than creating and enjoying a beautiful meal together with some of your favorite people? Grab a bunch of your friends, colleagues or neighbors and join us for a private cooking party! Whatever occasion you are celebrating, let the experts at Thought Design create a memorable event that will be sure to have your guests talking about for years to come. From an immersive, hands-on cooking class with full instruction, to a cooking demonstration, our in-house chef, Shaun Wooden will cook up an experience that’s fun, affordable and of course, delicious.

Customized Just For You

Here at Thought Design, we custom create the experience that best fits your group’s taste, everything from pasta-making classes to three-course meals to hand-made chocolate desserts. We feel that each group deserves a one-of-a-kind event, therefore, you won’t find any pre-packaged activities to choose from. We want to get to know you, your expectations for the experience, and develop something amazing that fits within your budget.
