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.

 

  • 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.
