Hosting a Dinner Party at La Maison Pacifique

Hosting a Dinner Party at La Maison Pacifique

La Maison Pacifique has the perfect set up for our guests to host their own dinner party (for up to 10) as part of their stay. It is up to you how much you want to be involved, but being adventurous, we went for the Spanish cooking class option and it was a feast!

Caterer and chef extraordinaire Leanne from 2 Cooks in the Kitchen went through showing us what to do. She had already made the marinated roasted olives and spiced and lime nuts so we nibbled on those with a jug of Sangria she made.  Seriously I could have just been happy there, the flavours were divine. Leanne then made the starter of a tuna paste crostini with fried capers and chives, OMG so good.

Paella was course number 3 and with great instruction, we went through cooking the Paella from start to finish. It was the best I’ve ever tasted and I’ve consumed and made a few in my day. She also made a chocolate and orange cake which we had hot with vanilla ice-cream and orange pieces.

The whole night went really well and the demonstration worked well around the shape of the bench. 6 was a good size for a cooking class, but if you want to extend to a dinner party, we can cater for up to 10 people.

Leanne is a personal chef for a family and can also prepare meals and cater to anyone – even if they don’t want to watch – or do meal drop offs.  (We can organise a meet and unpack service like we do for our Online Grocery service – all at just $40.00 per hour extra).

So how cool is that!  You can combine your relaxing holiday with a seasonal, chef quality, in-home cooked meal, a meal dropped off or be adventurous and talk to Leanne about a cooking class for you and your guests like we did!

At La Maison Pacifique we pride ourselves on having a full kitchen of equipment, sharp knives and all essentials for budding Masterchefs, so this could be a great activity to share with your friends (or even as a fun activity on the night before your wedding day).  Leanne specialises in cooking classes for everything from team building activities, girls weekends, hens nights and baby showers.  A perfect answer to a great night in (and the setting could not be better of course!).  With a focus on sourcing fresh, seasonal foods (and with places like Tropical Fruit World just down the road) you will have an evening to remember.  Don’t forget our own fresh herbs and fruit from our own bush tucker garden too.

So how do I book this?  Well, just contact me, Di Hendy and I can put you in touch with Leanne.  Either that, or contact Leanne direct via 0439 966 808 or 0403 158 530.  Dont be put off by their Vulture Street, West End address on their website.  Leanne is a regular visitor to our beautiful Northern NSW Coast and she would love to host another dinner party at La Maison Pacifique.
