TEAMS ON FIRE COMPETITION

Some friendly competition can really heat things up in the kitchen! Your company’s guests will be divided into small teams and receive the same recipes. The challenge is for each team to work together to create the best meal! Teams will be judged on technique, taste, presentation, organization, and creativity.

The Teams on Fire format is priced at $150/person*
Prices can vary according to the menu and the number of menu items selected

WELLNESS AND HEALTHY COOKING EVENTS

We tailor each event, or cooking workshop, to suit your needs but a big part of our program is education on the basics of good nutrition. Our events can be lectures, presentations, cooking demos, hands-on cooking classes, or a combination of these. For demos, we may bring prepared snacks or lunches of the items we’re cooking. KoF is part of several wellness programs and wellness days in the Bay Area where we educate and cook with large groups. We have presented “Lunch and Learns” to organizations like BART and GU Energy. We train salespeople on how to stay healthy on the road and create team-building events on how foods affect our bodies in different ways.

Private Cooking Parties

Our private cooking parties are the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion. Our team will work with you to create a unique experience that will create lasting memories!

We’ve worked with guests in the past who’ve celebrated:

  • Birthdays: Friends and family gather to cook the lucky birthday guest’s favorite cuisine.
     
  • Anniversary parties: Celebrate a milestone by bringing your friends and family together over food that they help to create - a special shared experience.
     
  • Kids’ parties: Ditch the typical overly sugared children’s party and let us teach your child and their friends that cooking healthy can be fun and delicious.
  • Bridal and bachelorette parties: Plan something out of the ordinary – share an intimate dining experience with your closest friends and family to celebrate coming nuptials.
     
  • Baby showers: Celebrate while giving the gift of health – plan a cooking party that teaches you how to create natural and healthy baby food or menus for the growing family.

WHICHEVER TYPE OF PARTY THAT YOU PLAN, YOU CAN EXPECT A THREE HOUR EXPERIENCE THAT WILL INCLUDE:

  • A complimentary fruit and cheese platter upon arrival and time to chat and transition from the day to the class

Catering

Kitchen on Fire has become a local favorite for team building and other private events in the Berkeley area over the past 10 years. We have expanded our team to include catering specialists to bring the same local, seasonal, organic foods to you at your location for any variety of events.  All of our catering dishes are hand-made by our chefs just as you would experience in our hands-on events and classes in one of our kitchens in Berkeley.

We typically limit our in-house catering events to 100-150 maximum to ensure we hold to our quality standards. If you have a larger event, please contact us at events@kitchenonfire.com.

    Examples of catering events:

    • Full On-Site Production Kitchen with a team of Kitchen on Fire Chefs and support staff for private parties at your venue.
    • Healthy Box Lunches for corporate events for employees and/or the public.
    • Buffet Style Lunch or Dinner with a combination of hot and cold entrees.
    • Fine Dining Plate-up Lunch or Dinner with a combination of hot and cold entrees.
    • Combine the hands-on event and catering experience – a very personalized event. These events are customized to fit the needs of your group, perhaps your guests are interested in a little hands-on cooking (for an appetizer or some grilling), though not up for participating in preparing all the dishes as we would do for a typical hands-on event.

    WHICHEVER EVENT TYPE THAT YOU CHOOSE, YOU CAN EXPECT:

    • A complimentary fruit and cheese platter upon arrival and time to chat and transition from the day to the class
    • A brief chef talk, covering the recipes and techniques of the event
    • About an hour and a half of hands-on cooking
    • What you have been waiting for - time to share the delicious dishes that you and your team have prepared
    • To leave full and happy!
