Mystery ingredients revealed at the start of the clock. 1 hour. No recipes. You'll feel like you're on a cooking show at Mise En Place's Iron Chef Teambuilding Event. Entries are judged based on categories such as creativity, originality, presentation, and of course taste. A team comes home the winner, but when plates are passed around, everybody wins.
Mise en Place refers to the French "everything in its place", or the cut, diced, sliced, and minced ingredients, ready to work their way down the recipe. As featured in Richmond Family Magazine's "What's Cooking", Virginia Business Magazine, The Richmond Times Dispatch, Richmond Magazine, Style Weekly, and on WTVR, Mise En Place has been creating culinary works of art for over 10 years.
Mise en Place hosts groups of up to about 16 in their downtown historic Shockoe Slip location. For larger groups of up to about 60 people, events are held at Kitchen Thyme on Broad Street in Henrico. The facility is equipped with four ovens and 1,500 square feet of space in their "dream kitchen" which is made specifically for larger corporate and private events.
This business is available for private events year round.
Appetizer, Entree, Sides and Dessert for each person

Aprons to use and return at the end of cooking.
Aprons can be engraved and given as gifts. Need 5 weeks lead time.
No prior cooking knowledge is required. Guests must be 21+ in order to drink alcohol.

Not a problem! Please let us know about any allergy restrictions before the event. Our staff always tries to accommodate any and all restrictions when we know ahead of time.
For private and corporate events, Mise En Place provides the wine with the meal. If you would like to provide your own wine, this is a possibility - please let us know ahead of time.
Mystery ingredients, no recipes, one hour - go! It's like being on TV on the show, Chopped.
In addition to the Iron Chef Group Challenge, Mise En Place is happy to host sit-down dinners or provide the recipes for all of the participants.
"My husband and I wanted to try something different; something other than the classic dinner/movie date night. For us, it was a wonderful experience and a good change in pace!"

Held a team-building event here and it was a blast. I was surprised that everyone - especially the guys in the group - joined in and the "meals" we turned out were all tasteful and presented beautifully! Highly recommend, and would love to do it again!

A wonderful, welcoming, place for a fun cooking class! If you're in the market to try something different for a date night, friends night, or team building with coworkers, definitely try Mise En Place. Thank you to Chef Nate for being a great instructor!
