We recently planned a surprise 30th birthday party at Eurostoves in Beverly and it was a blast! We wanted to do something unique and fun, so we asked the question, “what does the birthday girl like?”
Our answer…FOOD + WINE…who doesn’t, right?
That’s when we came up with the idea of a cooking party for this food lover. The birthday girl, Sheri, thought she was going out for dinner down the street. When she realized they were early, she asked her husband if they could stop into Eurostoves to check out some fun kitchen gadgets. Could she make it any easier for us? Surprise!
How it works: you split up into pairs to create a unique dish, drink some wine/beer and socialize while the food is cooking and then everyone sits down to eat “family style” around a huge table. We made some delicious ricotta bruschetta, colorful endive chopped salad, tasty chicken and wine dish and a wonderful salmon, in addition to barley risotto and parmesan mushrooms. We finished the meal off with a yummy lemon cake with cherry compote. To say the least, no one left hungry! And the best part is you get to make a mess out of someone else’s kitchen!
We decided to get creative and made some fun, personalized aprons for everyone…
And a special apron for the birthday girl…
There are so many amazing industrial kitchens in the area that offer private party options. Not only is this a great birthday party idea, but it would also be a great company team building event.
