private cooking parties & classes nyc
the mcp program
- Our culinary events are 3 hours in length. We begin with complimentary Hors D'oeuvres while guests are arriving. Next, we cook for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. Finally, you and your guests sit down to a three course meal - created by you, plated by our chefs, and served by our staff. We handle all arrangements from A-Z - so there is no need for you to deal with event specifics once you arrive. Beyond being a one stop activity spot, we really pride ourselves on the fact that our Cooking Parties truly bring people together in a unique way; slicing, dicing and sautéing to the Gypsy Kings often leads to an impromptu dance party. Our private cooking lessons are warm and engaging way to acknowledge your milestone outside of the box!
battle of the bitesTM - the competition
- In the spirit of the Top Chef and Iron Chef phenomenon - MCP offers a competition outlet for spirited leaders looking to shine. In this style program, guests are divided into teams of 15-20. Each team will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of ingredients. Then, under the guidance of our chefs, groups must work to invent & execute an Hors D'oeuvre that beats the competition. Participants will be judged based on creativity, taste, Hors D'oeuvre design and the number of items they were able to execute in the timeframe allotted. All participants enjoy the fruit of their labor as well as the hors d'oeuvres created by the alternate teams. MCP works with event organizers to establish a system of judging, and the winning team enjoys bragging rights (and silly paper chef hats!). The battle of the bites is the best choice for groups containing participants who may not be interested in cooking an extensive meal from start to finish.
the dinner duel
- Feeling really brave? Let My Cooking Party stage a culinary quest of epic proportions. After enjoying some small bites upon arrival, guests will head into combat where they will be divided into dueling groups. Once at their station, each team's three edible weapons will be revealed. These six main-stage items (two proteins, two veggies & two starches), will serve as a base for whatever the competitors decide to present at their feast. No Recipes - just 90 minutes and a desire to win. Each team and their MCP Chef will brainstorm, plan, cook, and execute large platters of food to be served at a post duel, family-style banquet. A few added twists from our master of ceremonies will help to create a memorable evening of laughter and rivalry - And if your group is as talented as they are courageous, you will enjoy six delightful dishes that are fit for a King. If not, there's always dessert!

Thank you both so much for helping me make David's 50th birthday celebration such a special event. He absolutely LOVED the party and had a wonderful time.
