If you’re looking for a unique dining experience, consider the Culinary Center of Kansas City, located in old downtown Overland Park. It’s a great place to take your date and learn something new from some of the finest chefs in the area. They have two large demonstration kitchens where they offer over 600 cooking classes every year with a wide variety of cooking experiences.
It’s becoming a fall tradition where Ernie and Parker host an evening out for employees and their spouses. This year, we had approximately fifty folks enjoying an Italian themed evening. Chef Sandy DiGiovanni taught us how to prepare roasted vegetable salad, chicken picatta with caper cream sauce, angel hair pasta pomodoro, sautéed spinach & radicchio and my favorite, spumoni tartufo with rumchata sauce! Each table got to wear aprons and try their hand at preparing these dishes. Pace yourselves… the food is delicious and portions are generous!
“I really enjoyed the opportunity to get together as a Straub family. Straub Construction is always coming up with great ideas of how to get everybody’s families together and involved. It was a great team building event learning how to make an Italian dish from scratch.”
“Going to the culinary center is one of my favorite events Straub offers its employees. Socializing with co-workers and their spouses while learning to cook great food makes for such an enjoyable evening.”
“I absolutely loved it! I’ve been there previously and have always had a great experience. I hope to do it again soon!”
