There is only one thing I like better than food and that’s entertainment. When you meet Christine Van Bloem, owner of The Kitchen Studio, you get both! She is sass and spunk all rolled up into one saucy chef! And coincidentally, The Kitchen Studio is celebrating their 9 year anniversary the night of our garden party charity event where she is a Wedge level sponsor!
I have taken two of my client leadership teams to TKS for her Corporate Culinary Team building session and they are both still raving about how much fun they had. I’ve seen firsthand that when it comes to handling a crowd of he-men in the kitchen, she ain’t scared! No one entertains a crowd like Christine and I’ve seen some of the best! And her instructor staff are super supportive, sweet, and can handle an oven like no one’s business! In other words, the know their stuff… or in this case… cookies, which were served warm at the conclusion of one of the team building sessions I attended 🙂
The Kitchen Studio teaches a wide variety of cuisines, from Italian, Asian, French, along with specific technique classes such as Knife Skills and the Art of the Saute! She hosts birthday parties (for the young and young at heart) and was even host to a Must Love Shoes cooking class once called “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!” It was such a fun way to connect with other like-minded women! On a related note, stay tuned for details on “Must Love Shoes Goes to Italy” when Chef Christine will be giving those who couldn’t make our upcoming inaugural women’s retreat to the Tuscany region a chance to experience Italian food here in Frederick.
Tired of Date Night being dinner and a movie? Round up some of your best friend couples and let Christine teach a class. They LOVE private classes and can accommodate up to 18 people. In late September TKS is offering a Pastry and Cooking Techniques class so make sure you tune in regularly to her website and Facebook page often for information.
So look for Christine the night of the party. She will convince you that playing with your food is not only allowed, it’s encouraged!
Thanks for your support Christine!
