Art of the Meal



Kids Birthday Parties

Let us host your next birthday party in our hands-on kitchen! Art of the Meal can accommodate up to 24 participants in our child-friendly kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with ample space for hands-on classes. Your kids will prepare a fun, delicious, age-appropriate menu designed to encourage them to try new foods while they learn about food science and how to work safely in the kitchen.

Your event will include:

  • Exclusive use of our facility
  • A two-hour hands-on class including time for presents and eating
  • A meal and lemonade for the participants is included
  • You are welcome to bring a cake


All parties are two hours. We are happy to extend the time in the kitchen for an additional charge if our calendar permits. A $100 nonrefundable deposit is required to hold the date. The deposit will be applied to the balance, which is due on the day of your private party. We will ask for a headcount the day before and you will be charged by the headcount you provide. If you need to cancel or change your event, please let us know within seven days of your event. Please note the initial $100 deposit is nonrefundable should the event be cancelled.

Personal Pizza

Children will love this completely hands-on pizza party! They will prepare their own pizza dough and then get to top their individual pizzas with pepperoni and cheese. (Additional toppings are available upon request.)

Pot Stickers

Kids will prepare their own pot stickers with won ton wrappers with a sweet soy dipping sauce and will hand dip fortune cookies in chocolate and decorate in fun sprinkles. Kids 10 and over will make their own fortune cookies!

Pasta Party

Kids will make fresh pasta dough from scratch and then roll it out in the pasta machines. There will be Parmesan cheese, marinara, and meatballs.

Cheese Enchiladas

Kids will prepare fresh corn tortillas and roll them in a choice of beef, chicken or pork carnitas. We will sprinkle liberally with cheese and proceed to whip up some fluffy golden sopapillas topped with powdered sugar. 

Cookies and Milk

A classic cookies and milk party where kids will make and bake two classics: chocolate chip cookie dough and
sugar cookie dough.

For children nine and over, we are happy to offer
