About Parties That Cook

We believe the magic of creating a meal together inspires connection. Founded in 1999, Parties That Cook stages hands-on culinary events and group cooking classes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, Portland and Seattle. We are completely mobile, hosting events in private homes, offices, and dozens of rented venues for groups of 15-350. Our events inspire teamwork, camaraderie and collaboration, but most of all, they're FUN. We specialize in corporate team building activities, private cooking parties, and public group cooking classes.
