What’s Cookin’
Happy New YearHappy New Year

We hope you popped the Champagne this New Year’s Eve because 2010 is going to be a good year! As a corporate team building events company, Parties That Cook is the perfect barometer for the economic and corporate climate. When our phones ring, it means companies have the budget for fun team building events. The good news? Our phones are ringing! The kitchen is already 3 times busier than January last year and we think that indicates more prosperous times for all. Go ahead, pour the champers. Cheers!

The countdown is on for Parties That Cook’s largest charitable donation to date benefitting Room to Read. Join us on February 4th at Cooking for a Cause, an amazing evening of delicious food and wine followed by an inspirational talk with Room to Read Founder, John Wood.

Don’t forget to surprise your special someone this Valentine’s Day with a romantic couples cooking class in San Francisco, Chicago or Seattle. Or, meet fellow foodies at Gourmet Dating and Sizzle & Swirl cooking classes. See you there!

Bon Appetit!
