Hands On Gourmet (aka HOG) offers interactive cooking parties for team building and private events. Think of HOG as an opportunity for people to get to know each other in a familiar and comfortable setting—the kitchen. Our events are instructive, interactive, and most importantly fun!

How It Works

Booking an event with Hands On Gourmet is as easy as one, two, three! Everyone’s needs are a little different, therefore, all of our events are a little different. The core format is groups come together, cook alongside professional chefs and then eat together.


We offer five seasonal menu choices. Hold the duck fat, hate cilantro, allergic to wheat, vegetarian or lactose intolerant? Custom menus don’t upset us; they’re a welcome creative challenge! We can accommodate all dietary preferences.

Team Building & Other Parties

Hands On Gourmet is the answer to your company’s offsite event or it can be a unique way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other fun occasion. Groups gather to enjoy a cooking class that includes eating, laughing and sharing the meal that you created together.
