Corporate Events On Location at The Natural Gourmet
Whether it's a corporate team building or private cooking event such as a birthday or shower, the Natural Gourmet provides a lovely venue to make your hands-on cooking experience deliciously memorable.
The event begins with wine and passed appetizers ready when you arrive.
Next, you and your group will cook the entire meal from the chosen menu that Myra designed for you. You then relax and sit down to eat with your group, as the staff plates and serves your creations.
Ingredients are of the highest quality, from organic poultry, dairy, and eggs to high quality oils. Aprons and knives are supplied. We can accommodate from 10 to 50 people for the cooking events. Price ranges from 145 to 175, including wine, tax and tip. There are no hidden charges. A typical event runs 3 to 31/2 hours: 1/2 hour for wine and hors d'oeuvres, 11/2 hours of cooking, then a sit-down, full-service three-course dinner where you all enjoy the meal you've made. Wine is served throughout the event.
Some of the companies Myra has led cooking events for include American Express, Colgate- Palmalive, Jurlique, Gap, Banana Republic, Massius, Credit-Suisse, Alliance-Bernstein, Yahoo, Abbott, Andrews Kurth, Virgin Atlantic, and the FDNY Counseling Service Unit.

Here's what people had to say...
"Having a culinary event coordinated and executed by Myra was an extraordinary experience. Not only did the participants learn how to create culinary delicacies, it was also a great time to socialize. Myra created an environment perfect to catch up with old friends and to meet new ones. And, best of all, after indulging in the spectacular culinary creations everyone left fully satiated!"
--Bonnie Gang, LMSW--Counseling Service Unit of the FDNY
"Our holiday cooking event was a unique and successful team-building event for our company. Myra and her staff at Natural Gourmet made this a memorable, fun and delicious activity."
-- Lisa Abbatiello, CEO, Masius l Publicist Consultants
"Myra, allow to me to THANK YOU for creating such a wonderful experience. I am thrilled that you were able to design this event around our needs, including a great menu and a punctual beginning and ending time. Your menu selections all had a great variety and had something for everyone. We made our own dinner, ate well and enjoyed a great team building event. Our meal turned out delicious and the "chocolate cake for dessert was the best". From the roasted chicken to the garlic spinach and balsamic vinaigrette and hazelnut salad, we enjoyed every minute. I am thrilled with how the event turned out. We all had a great time."
