Customize Your Event

All corporate events are held at DEANE Inc., with convenient locations in Stamford. Our menu collection features fresh seasonal ingredients to suit your event. We have aprons for guests to wear, and our DEANE kitchens feature top quality appliances and tools from Sub Zero, Wolf, La Cornue, Wusthof knives and All Clad cookware. We provide all of the food and non alcoholic beverages for your event. Each event lasts between 3-4 hours. Start time is flexible and you can choose from daytime or evening to host your event. Each guest will be given a recipe packet to bring home and show off their new cooking skills with pride.

We will gather the group over beverages and hors d’oeuvres to explain how the evening how will work and break up the group into roughly 3-5 person teams. Then the fun begins, learning new knife skills, learning how to properly sear, properly season and even hone your grilling skills. All the while together as a team you are communicating, laughing, eating great food and creating end experience to last a lifetime.

What Our Clients Are Saying

  • We all had a really good time and your team was excellent. They made us feel very comfortable (even for those of us who are less comfortable in the kitchen!) and encouraged a fun atmosphere.

    Sarah E. Murray, Esq. Broder & Orland LLC
  • Thank you so much for a fun evening at Culinary Works; I have been getting compliments all morning! It was the perfect team-building night and the food was outstanding. Please send our appreciation to Wanda, James and Evelyn as well. They were warm & welcoming and so helpful to our Shoreline crew.

  • Thank you so much for such a great event last night. The team loved preparing the food, receiving lessons on proper kitchen techniques, and most importantly - the food! Wanda and you really helped create such a wonderful team experience. We are looking forward to receiving the recipes so we can try and recreate them.

  • Thank you, Julia! I’ve been getting so many excellent reviews about our time with you yesterday. Our team has been really busy over the last few months and this was the perfect event to laugh and joke with each other and bring that spirit back to the group. Thank you so much!

    Sarah P. Daymon Worldwide
  • I took your wonderful Holiday Appetizers Class with Dawn M. a couple of weeks ago and I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it! Over Christmas my daughter and I made the apple and brie crostini, the sirloin steak with blue cheese butter, and the chocolate peanut butter bars. All 3 were simply delicious! I can't wait to try the other recipes.

    Lisa P.
  • The team had an absolute blast! We are still talking about it. Thank you and your team for a wonderful event. Hope to work with you again in the future.

    Lucy B. Priceline.com
  • The feedback was overwhelmingly positive;  we had a great time yesterday!  

    M. Tackett Starwood Hotel & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.
  • Thank you again for such a wonderful evening at Culinary Works! The feedback from my team was not surprising to me, but I thought I would share it with you. The singular message back to me was that this was the best "business dinner" they had ever experienced. Everyone had a chance to interact with all of their peers (vs. 2-3 people sitting near them at a typical dinner). And, they were impressed by their own ability to actually make a meal (all be it with tons of help). You are running a great business, but it's not a specialty catering/culinary business. It's so much more than that. You are helping people from across the globe to connect with one another in a way they never could in a board room or restaurant. You helped me connect with a new team, and helped them understand one another at a completely different level. For that, we say THANK YOU!!!

  • Thank-you so much! The event was great and we got so much positive feedback. We really appreciate y'all putting on such a fantastic night for us!
    Ashley Katsuyama Holly Pond School
  • The event was excellent! Julia and Wanda were absolutely wonderful – they offered the perfect balance of guidance while still being hands-off enough to let us run with it. I can't thank them enough.
    Will definitely recommend to other teams at AQR!
    Jeremy Barr AQR Capital
  • Our global compliance and privacy team had a great time at Culinary Works on Wednesday evening. Everyone complimented our corporate team on the overall event, venue and all were delighted with the instructional cooking techniques and being a chef for an evening. You and your team did a great job! Food items were delicious and everyone is requesting the electronic recipes so when time permits I hope you can send them along to me with the group photo that James took. Appreciate all that you and your team did to make for a very successful and fun event!
