Cooking Party Menu

Hands down, if we took a poll it would be voted the most popular event at Corner Cooks.  Some people choose to cook up everything with us, others prefer to relax, have a drink and watch their friends cook up a storm.  Then there are those who like us to have the appetizers ready to go when they walk in.  However you choose to make your evening your evening, we’re game.  Cook a little, cook a lot, and then sit at our table (candlelit of course) and let us take care of the rest.
