We bring all food and supplies.

Food Allergies and sensititives

We are very knowledgeable about food allergies and sensitivities, and we take them very seriously! However, please know that the prep kitchens we use are not allergen-free. We are an adventurous cooking business and we regularly cook with all kinds of ingredients. Although we take precautions to prevent cross-contamination, there is always a small risk. If you are uncomfortable with this, then an Adventure Kitchen birthday party is not for you (unfortunately!).

How We Do Things

We encourage kids to try new things in a fun and age-appropriate way! This may include working with many kinds of kitchen tools, and for kids 10 and up, working with knives under close supervision. We also encourage but never require kids to smell, touch and taste lots of things that may be unfamiliar to them, or that they may be wary of. It's all part of the adventure! If you have any questions or concerns about this for your particular situation, please reach out. We want to create a party that you and your child will both love!
