Cyd's Hands-On Private Cooking Co-Operatives
Cyd's offers private cooking co-operatives.  Just what is a cooking cooperative?  A fun night that's half cooking class + half catered party!  These events are available as a private event for groups of 10 or more.  Here's how they work: the group meets at Cyd's + begins the night with a quick discussion regarding the evening's menu, the approaches involved, and a rundown of how Cyd's kitchen works. At this point, we decide who will make what recipes + enter the kitchen.  This is when things really get cooking!  The group works with a menu composed of several recipes designed around a general theme.  All participants take part in creating all the recipes, making up an entire meal of many components.  Upon completion of the meal, everyone enjoys the dishes as a buffet served in Cyd's Cafe.  It's a night filled with learning, fun + great food.  It's a wonderful experience for groups-- the night can be designed to function as a group competition, which is a great team building exercise. 
To schedule your private Cyd's Cooking Co-operative, call Emily Cotton at 685-1100.
