Gourmet Dating - Chicago
Parties That Cook turns up the heat with Gourmet Dating, an upscale culinary event where singles learn cooking techniques, eat delectable food, and meet other fun singles.
At this exciting hands-on cooking party, guests are greeted at the door with a nibble and nametag. After an introductory cooking lesson featuring tips like the fastest way to dice an onion without a tear, guests are broken into co-ed cooking teams.
Each team works on a recipe from the evening's tapas menu, all while sipping wine and listening to upbeat music. The group savors the 'fruits' of their labor with new friends (or maybe a romance)!
After the event, copies of the recipes, digital photos, and e-mail address aliases are sent to the group.
