Join Us For A Friday Night Food Fight!

June 5, 2017

Introducing a NEW cooking class concept
offered by The Culinary Center of Kansas City…

Friday Night Food Fight
Friday Night Food Fight
An Iron Chef-Inspired Mystery Box Cooking Party
Offered Three Times This Summer!
Friday, June 16, 2017  |  6:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Friday, July 28, 2017  |  6:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Friday, August 25, 2017  |  6:30 – 9:00 p.m.

Much like the popular Food Network cooking shows, this interactive and fun Friday night food competition will place you in small teams where you’ll be pitted against other chef wannabes, all with mystery boxes of ingredients and a cruel clock.  Folks, we have been providing these kinds of interactive experiences for 20 years now!  We can absolutely guarantee a fun … and delicious… evening! 

We’ll greet you with a specialty cocktail we like to call the ‘Chef’s Little Helper’, and then all you weekend kitchen warriors will be let loose to transform your ingredients into a restaurant-quality dish to feed the entire motley crew.  Bartering?  Uh-huh… if you wanna.  Trips to our pantry?  Sure… within reason.  And, our chefs and staff will be right there with you during the evening cheering you on, fetching equipment and providing real cooking education as you go.  

Expect a fair amount of kitchen “trash talk” as we anticipate that a few of you will get quite cocky as you compete for some seriously good prizes. (e.g “Hey, where did you get your training, Le Cordon Poo?”)  Not to worry though … our chefs will make certain that the drama stays at a minimum… and that your dish comes out like a star.  

You’ll strategize, plan, barter, cook, create and beautifully present your tasty dish.  We might even throw in a few challenges, just to keep things exciting.  In the end, we’ll all sit down around the table and dine on our culinary creations.

The judges will pick the winners and provide light-hearted feedback.  Pull together your own winsome cooking team or we’ll put you with some new friends.  Either way, it’s a good, clean and tasty way to party on a Friday night!

This hands-on class includes dinner and PRIZES!
$65/person
