As a restaurant owner you may frequently find yourself so caught up in keeping the business running, that you have little time and flexibility to run the business! Just need a little help finishing those pesky training guides or standardized recipes? Or arranging a new marketing campaign and sourcing new local farms or purveyors? Designing a business expansion? We can help. Let us assist you in bringing your business to its fullest potential!
At The Forks believes that excellent food is at root of building communities. The knowledge and confidence of how to prepare them, while also being supportive of local farmers and makers, should be available to all who wish to learn. We offer many cooking classes, from knife-skill basics to more unique and intuitively driven learning experiences. Check our social media for more information on our scheduled learning events! Or reach out directly if you would like to schedule a private class for family and friends, or for your business as a unique team building event.
Do you have a special occasion that you'd prefer to celebrate with a custom menu? Our holistic approach to meals and gatherings make us an easy choice for those who value meals prepared from local ingredients for thoughtful family style spreads of up to 20 people. New American cuisine is at the core of our expertise, but we look forward to working with you to build a creative menu that can accommodate any theme or dietary restriction.
