Party Style Classes
Casual cooking or baking class with a social atmosphere.
If you’re looking for an out-of-the-box and memorable experience, choose a party-style class for your next celebration!
Our party-style classes at Bettie’s Chicago are just as fun and delicious as our in-depth private classes but offer more time for mingling and socializing with guests. Each themed hands-on party class is guided by our chef instructor with a short baking or cooking demo. Choose from our party options below or contact us to create something truly custom for your gathering!
