Cooking Class Engagement Party

Impress foodies with a cooking class hosted at a local culinary school or restaurant. Or hire a chef to teach the class at your home. When it comes to choosing the menu, pick a starter, an entree and a dessert. For ideas on what to make, tap into the couple’s favorite dishes and personalities -- if they both love sweets, make it desserts-only, or if they come from a particular cultural background, serve up international cuisine. Split guests up into smaller groups so that each group can tackle one of the choices on the menu. Have a buffet-style setup of all the food, along with recipe cards for guests to take home at the end of the night.
