Private Teaching Kitchen events are hosted by Dining Services and can be scheduled for student and campus groups. Dining Services will provide all ingredients, utensils, and safety equipment for events. The UREC Demo Kitchen is the primary location for Teaching Kitchen Events. The demo kitchen allows for a max of 10 attendees. For parties over 10 people, prices and location may vary. Payment is due 15 days after the event occurs. To ensure sufficient planning time, groups must schedule events two weeks in advance of their desired event date. Please contact Maggie Sullivan (, Campus Dietitian, to schedule your event. In your email, include the date of your event and your choice of events from the options below.
