Watch and Help CIA Chefs Prepare Dinner at The Chef’s Table

Hyde Park, NY – This fall, food enthusiasts in the Hudson Valley have a unique opportunity to enjoy an evening of fun, food, and friends as they watch—and even help—a CIA chef prepare their meal.

Guests will gather round The Chef’s Table in the college’s Marriott Pavilion demo kitchen and see culinary magic made right before their eyes. And with just 10 food enthusiasts at the table, there will be plenty of opportunity for everyone to jump in and help, ask the chef questions, and enjoy delicious food and beverage pairings.

Three Chef’s Table events are on the menu:

  • Pasta—Thursday, October 13
    Learn how to make pasta dough and then how to roll, cut, cook, and sauce your handmade pasta.
  • Perfect Steak—Thursday, November 3
    Find out the chef’s secrets for trimming, cutting, and cooking a perfect steak every time.
  • Party Food—Thursday, December 15
    Discover how to create everything from starters to small plates to the main course, just in time for holiday entertaining.

The price for each Chef’s Table event is $75 per person and includes all food, beverages, and service. Each event runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m., and is limited to 10 participants. Dress is casual. Reservations can be made online or by calling 1-800-888-7850.
