Virtual Teambuilding
& Cooking Class

While our typical dinners and live events are on hold, join us virtually to celebrate and support NECAT.

Has pandemic fatigue got you down? We certainly miss the frivolity and joy we get from cooking and sharing a meal among our NECAT supporters.

This year, we’ve created a distinctive and fun dining alternative—one that combines eating, socializing and teambuilding without breaking any safety rules. Our virtual Dinner Party options provide a chance to celebrate and connect with your team, while ensuring that NECAT continues to help its participants have a fighting chance during these most challenging times.

How Does it Work?

Menu & Ingredients

You select a recipe and wine pairing with the help of one of our talented chefs. Ingredients will be shipped directly to all participants in advance to make prep quick and easy (no shopping necessary). *


NECAT will provide the email invitation and prep instructions to your participants once you provide contact names, emails and shipping addresses.


Your team will be instructed by an experienced NECAT chef. The format is interactive and informal, as your participants cook along with our chef, ask questions and see their dinner come together.


Eat, drink, and be merry together! Celebrating online means no queue at the bar!
