Here Comes The Bridal Party


Cookology offers a party that will put the bride on a path of success in the kitchen

Sterling, VA – Starting off as a new couple can be challenging at best, but it can be even more of challenge if both parties come to the table with little or no cooking skill.  Cookology is now offering a solution of success with classes geared toward new brides.

 “Cookology was designed to take the stress out of cooking, and giving people the skill to cook, especially as a couple starts out is what we do best,” said owner Maria Kopsidas.  “Our professionally trained chefs enjoy the interaction with our customers, many who come back for multiple classes, often bonding with other participants in the class and learning new techniques that are delicious and healthy. It is the recipe for success in a new marriage.”

Cookology’s bridal party packages offer a variety of options to suit the needs of any occasion.  From a relaxed, mixer-style bash to hands-on, interactive cooking sessions and elegant dinner-style event, there’s something for every bride. Each package features gourmet dishes created by our award-winning professional chefs and fantastic wines for a unique and tasteful celebration.  Let us handle all the details of your event (instead of bar hopping we bring the wine to you), or customize your experience by adding your own theme (like a kitchen party where guests bring cooking gear to stock your new shared digs). The possibilities are endless and we make it easy.

Classes include:

Bachelor/Bachelorette Food & Wine Pairing event: A great outing for a group of girlfriends (or guy friends) or a large blended family event. The class is a mixer-style event where guests sit back, relax and enjoy professional chef plates and includes a menu of delicious appetizer dishes.

We can even customize a rehearsal dinner chef’s table dinner for a one-of-a-kind dinner before your big day.  During the tasting you will experience the food as the chef prepares it, have the opportunity to ask the chef questions while you dine, plus learn about precise, impressive culinary skills.
