I don’t know about you, but my husband I are always looking for fun date night ideas. We are both foodies, so going out to eat makes us both very happy, but every now and then it’s fun to change things up. Last weekend we definitely leveled up our date night! We spent a super fun night at the Chef’s Demonstration Table at the Dan’l Webster Inn in Sandwich.

The Chef's Demonstration Table at the Dan'l Webster Inn is a unique entertainment experience. Enjoy a cooking lesson and a wonderful dinner all in one fun night out.

The evening was quite entertaining as about 23 of us watched Chef Steve Chausse and Pastry Chef Lydia Broderick prepare a 3 course meal from scratch. The menu included roasted Stuffed Artichoke Tartlet, Winter Flounder Francaise with a beurre blanc sauce and a Ricotta Cheesecake with an almond crust for dessert. The two chefs made all three dishes from scratch all while providing tips on which tools and materials are best to use and lots of other practical tips that we will be able to use at home.

After each presentation, the finished product was served to the guests, so we ate as the chefs moved on to the next menu item. We started with the Roasted Stuffed Artichoke Tartlets. They were phenomenal.

The entree for the evening was Winter Flounder Francaise with a beurre blanc sauce. It was out of this world.

Chef Lydia made a Ricotta Cheesecake with almond crust. I’m not kidding when I say that it was the best cheesecake I’ve ever had.  If you know me, you know that I rave about the cheesecake at Magnolia’s Bakery in NYC, but Lydia blew Magnolia’s out of the water.

The setting was casual and both Steve and Lydia encouraged people to ask questions and interact. Both chefs not only taught us helpful cooking tips and tricks, but also shared entertaining stories from behind the scenes in the kitchen of the Dan’l Webster Inn and also shared insider recommendations on where to buy certain hard to find produce. Chef Chausse and Chef Broderick have worked together for many years and it’s clear by the way they interacted with each other that they have great respect for one another and most importantly, a great working relationship. Plus, how often do you get to sit back and watch two pros do what they do best? It really is amazing to watch.

The price for one of the Chef’s Demonstration Table events is $65. That includes an hour-long cooking lesson and dinner. Guests have the opportunity to purchase specially selected wine or beers that will complement the meal.

The Chef’s Demonstration Table was a fully entertaining experience and everything came together really nicely. I thought the meal was absolutely delicious and I love that everyone who attended got the recipes for the dishes presented at the Chef’s table so they can create them at home. My husband and I were really, really impressed and can’t wait to go to another one soon!

Christian and I walked out of the dining room with full bellies and lots of stuff to talk about as we recapped our experience with each other. Spending a night at the Chef’s Demonstration Table is definitely a great way to spend a night out.
