Virtual Teambuilding
& Cooking Class

NECAT's much-loved events haven't reconvened in person quite yet, but we're still throwing great dinner parties!

Back by popular demand, NECAT’s Virtual Dinner Parties return for another season. Bring your team together for a little cooking, a lot of eating, and tons of fun and frivolity! Our talented team of culinarians will help you craft an elegant meal paired with the perfect wine or cocktail. We’ll prepare your invitations and put together the ingredients you’ll need for a fabulous virtual NECAT Dinner Party. 100% of proceeds go toward training and placing low-income adults into living-wage culinary jobs.

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!
