Virtual Dinner Party
Join us every Wednesday at 6:00pm for this FREE gathering. This is not a cooking class and simply a way to stay connected.
The dinner party is facilitated by Kim Calichio, professional chef & owner of The Connected Chef. You will have access to Kim’s cooking and meal prep knowledge and can ask any and all questions you may have that will make your day feel more grounded and simple.
Come and cook together and be in community!
Note: While this offering is geared towards adults, we understand that many of us now have kids at home all the time. Please don't let your children stop you from join us and gathering in community!
