Chop, WOK & Talk! Is offering something ‘to do’ during the pandemic. Because eating is ‘essential ‘and most restaurants are closed/limited we are offering the option of private parties for groups that know each other extremely well/relatives/co-workers.  This gives everyone involved a comfort level and gives you a chance to socialize, learn some new cooking skills and enjoy a restaurant quality meal.  Most classes are 3 hours long with a few 4-hour classes indicated by an *.  All safety and sanitation measures are in place. All that we ask is please do not come if you have any Covid symptoms or have been near someone who has tested positive/has Covid. Masks required throughout class EXCEPT when eating!! The private party scenario will continue until the pandemic is under control with the vaccines.

IF interested please call for a list of available dates, let us know of allergies/dietary restrictions, choose a menu and come hungry!!  BTW, all classes are BYOB!  

You deserve a night out!!!,

Happy Spring,
