2013 Cooking Classes
Every year, on October 1st, we release our cooking classes for the following year.
We do this by several ways. We post the information on our Facebook page, our Twitter page, send info to our email list, and post the classes here on our website. We do not post them in the newspapers. We want our guests and fans to be the first to know about this. They typically sell out within an hour via the phone.
This year, (2013) on October 1st , 2013 at midnight, you can purchase a cooking class right here on our website. (Last year we received over 750 calls in one day)
All classes are sold on a first come first serve basis and are paid for at the time of purchase. There are seventeen spots for each cooking class and there are six different classes.
WHAT IT COSTS
Cost is $400.00 per person per class. (Plus a Paypal convenience fee of $20.00) They are non-refundable - If you cancel your class, you will have the gift card available to be used at the restaurant for food and beverage purchases. The card cannot be carried over to a different class or the next year.
The class includes 1 person in a class, a four-course meal on the night of the class (with other classmates) wine pairings, one guest for dinner, and a complimentary logo item. Due to the high demand of these classes, payment is done in advance and you will receive a gift card in the amount of the class. They are non-refundable. The gift card will have to be presented on the day of the class. It is considered your ticket, so place it in a safe place.
*(Classes may be sold out one year in advance, and all classes are reserved in advance)
*We try our hardest not to change the class dates, however it may happen.
*Chef Kevin's schedule subject to change and may not be in attendance
Here's How It Works
Rathbun's interactive cooking class takes you to the heart of the kitchen. Feel the passion, feel the heat, and get ready to experience the reality of the cooking. We don't make up recipes. We don't have rules....We begin from scratch and we decide on the dishes upon your arrival.
Upon arrival, we look in the walk-in and decide what is available and begin creating the dish with the cooking theme in mind. For three hours, you prepare the ingredients and get ready to make the dish.
You're in the kitchen, not in the seat.... We provide the excitement, the knowledge and the fun inside of the kitchen. You learn about the food, the fun and what drives the kitchen to be the best. Passion from the heart!
How it works: Four teams of three to five people create their dishes from scratch. Each team will then prepare their dinner and then sit down to enjoy their dishes. Classes begin at 1:30 and go to 4:30. At 4:30, your guest arrives and you begin serving them appetizers and beverages. Dinner then begins at 5:00 p.m. and ends at 7:00 p.m.
WHAT TO WEAR
Non slip shoes along with long pants, hair tied back, and casual clothing. If you wish, you can bring a change of clothing for the dinner, but it is not necessary. No open toed shoes please. We will email and confirm all class participants on the first week of the month of the specific class.
