You Say It's Your Birthday...Kitchen Studio 5-Year Anniversary!

I need a little help.

The Kitchen Studio Cooking School will celebrate its 5th Anniversary this summer. 5 Years.

And yup, no one is more surprised than me. (Well, maybe my dad is...) :)

For those of you who don't know, the vast majority of small businesses fail within the first 5 years. And that's not us. In fact, we are going strong doing all of the things we love to do, teaching adults, kids, teens, and tweens how to get their groove on in the kitchen. It's what we do best.

Cooking birthday party? Check, and heck yeah, your kid is gonna have the best. Party. EVER. Private classes for Adults? Check! Just pick your theme and we'll develop that perfect menu. Culinary Corporate Teambuilding? Double check, and your staff will go freaky-deaky with how much fun they have and learn a little something about themselves in the process.

So what do I need help with?

A celebration.

A par-tay.

Something to really show how happy we are that you, yes you, have been a major part of our success these past 5 years.

And I need your ideas.

ALL of your ideas. We're gonna have giveaways. We gonna offer sweet new classes. We're gonna make this something to remember. And the best part? I know someone who can make some really great food ;)

So let me know what YOU think could make this an anniversary worth remembering, and if I use one of your ideas, I'll bake you some super awesome cookies. You know we make cookies, right? ;) Leave a comment, send me a tweet (you DO follow us on Twitter, right? @frederickfoodie, just in case), and let me know what would put you into a partying mood. 'Cause we are ready to get doooowwwwn in the kitchen. With you.

Congratulations on the big celebration! I'm a simple kinda cook. Simple is better. How about an entire dinner with 5 ingredients (or 10, if 5's impossible). Something easy-peasy simple. ;)

Or alternatively, something that I could whip up in 30-minutes or less (regardless of the number of ingredients).

Again, congratulations. And here's to another 5, 10, 15, and 20 years!! :)

I think classes that take an in-depth look at one particular ingredient would be neat, a la Alton Brown. Choose one thing (like cheese, olive oil, chocolate etc.) and have a tasting of several different types along with a little mini class, then prepare a coupl recipes that showcase the ingredient in different ways. Then everyone can leave with enough specialized knowledge of a particular ingredient to impress their friends over dinner later :-)

I'm thinking some kind of countdown from now until the 5th anniversary, but maybe that's just because I like to extend the party as long as possible.
