Have you ever longed to be a contestant on one of those TV competitive cooking shows? Or do you think you can’t cook (or cook well), but you want to learn?  Your Friendly Passionate Chef Sean is inviting you to his beautiful home in Napa to challenge and battle your way to culinary glory. About once a month, always on a Saturday, will start these evening events with a Welcome Reception Party with hors d'oeuvres while you'll be introduced to the rest of your team and your judges and Chef, before each team is presented with a Mystery Basket of ingredients.  Then it is time to get creative and cook. Judging, awards ceremony and a separate dinner/wines will take place immediately following the competition with more mingling and having fun with all the attendees! You will not be disappointed and will have just as much fun as you do with my other food site here:


I know this sounds too good to be true...but it is! I am spending thousands building a full outdoor chef’s kitchen in my beautiful enclosed patio packed with British Thermal Units (BTU). So what are you waiting for....join now and come to cook and show your talents!

Not a cook? No worries, you all will be part of groups of 8 to 10 members whose talents range from very skilled to no skills at all...and the beauty of this is that you will all participate and make great dishes as you bond with each other.  This is lots of fun!!:) Or you could choose not to cook and just watch and be one of the Judges!!:)

PS. At each event, judging will be awarded based upon Presentation, Taste and Creativity of your dishes. Extra points for culinary attire! Don’t worry- there will be a Team Event Chef to help direct you and plan.
