What you'll do

You'll be greeted by Chef Danielle, and we'll start the evening with a quick lesson on wine pairing, especially as relates to the feature dish for this experience. Then, into the Chef 's kitchen where we will dive into the how and why this feature dish will be prepared by each guest, hands-on. It will not be a common dish, but can easily become your "signature" dish that you may be asked to make for friends in the future. The ingredients can be purchased for you. The level of expertise to prepare the chosen dish may vary by expertise or comfort level of the guests for that experience. The dish chosen will be posted for guests so there is no question what they will be learning and preparing for that experience. Wine pairings will be part of the experience and it will be paired for you that evening. You will learn how to pair wines with dishes, and step-by-step directions will be made available to you on a recipe card. You will be able to video the evening, if you wish, or make your own notes during the process.

Learn more about Danielle

Danielle

I have been a "Chef" for the past five or more years, and while waiting for funding for my local restaurant to come thru (still waiting), I started hosting a "Dani's Dinner with Friends" at my home where friends, and their friends, etc., reserve their seat to enjoy a unique experience in fine dining in a more intimate atmosphere - my home. The "menu" for that night is posted on my Facebook site, a sub-group called "Dani's Dinner with Friends." Guests pay $50.00 per dinner, which includes 4 or more courses and accompanying wine. I have hosted interested friends and friends of friends to workshops here where they have learned to prepare dishes such as Brie en Croute' and Salmon en Croute' with Champagne Cream Sauce, including wine pairings. Bring your own ingredients or pay a fee upfront thru PayPal. Room for up to 4 people plus the Chef.

What's included

Equipment
Food and wine, bowls, utensils, stove/oven (Gas), countertops, baking Sheets, rolling pins, recipe cards, etc. In short,…

Where you'll be

All of the experiences will take place at my home, in my "Chef's" kitchen, a small but very efficient space that can accommodate up to 4 guests including me, your Host. We will enjoy your masterpieces in my dining room, or weather permitting, in the garden.

Things to keep in mind

Dietary preferences

If requested, the host can accommodate the dietary needs listed. You must let the host know before the experience if you’d like your needs to be accommodated.

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

There is nothing to fear among friends and fellow "Foodies." Everything is provided for you, except the food and wine which I will purchase once funds are paid! We even provide laughter and maybe a new friend or 2! And, you get to enjoy all of it among your fellows who are finding their Inner Chef!
