though one of the smaller parts of little goat, and what will be the last to launch (opening after new year), the private dining and cooking classroom area is one i am most excited about. i did a few dinners last year where i invited people to buy tickets, with the proceeds going to charity, to come and eat in my home. 10 guests that i had not met before came into my little condo and spent the evening in my kitchen and living room, eating and drinking and having way too much fun. my staff thought i was a bit nuts to invite people into my home, but i loved it. i love entertaining guests at dinner parties. it lets my inner martha come out and i can cook for guests while still in the comfort of my home. this is what inspired the little goat private dining… a space that feels like home. granted a much tidier and more put together home than our real one (and a few less stuffed animals and such laying around). cocktail parties, sit down wine or beer paired dinners, special charity events, beer dinners, farm dinners…. anything we can think of, right in the comfort of our new home.
when we say cooking classroom, lets not think "...and here is how you sweat an onion." rather lets think "and today we have farmer justin kilgus here with three different breeds of pigs that we are going to chat about and blind taste test while drinking wine with our winemaker rich funk from saviah cellars," or "today we are having a barrel aging class with visitors tim burton, the maple syrup barrel aging guru, and john laffler who loves barrel aging beer as much as he loves an old fashioned … (and being the official little goat pancake taste tester)," or "today we have chef friend john besh from new orleans in town joining me to show how we each approach cooking with sweet corn" not that he is confirmed for this yet but will use this as an invite :) just food. drinks. fun.
