Birthday Parties

Make your child's next birthday a Cooking Round the World birthday!

This unique birthday party is fun because it is 100% hands-on! Everyone dices, juices, grates, sautés and participates. After cooking we eat what we cook. Everything seems to taste better when we cook it ourselves!


The pride in being able to create something that is eatable cannot be compared!

Cooking Round the World Birthdays offers 6 different party options. Families select a birthday party option. Two Cooking Round the World professionals will come to your house with ingredients, cookware and colorful place settings to make your child's party unique and memorable!

Where the party is held

Typically, parties take place at the home of the family. We use your kitchen, your stove, oven and sink and space. We talk to you before the party about accommodations and work together to make the party spectacular given your layout.

For families unable to use their home/kitchen, we suggested asking your friends, parents, grandparents if you can use their larger space. We’ve also had families use their church or club for the party.

When to book the party

Best to book the birthday as far in advance as possible to secure the date, but certainly 1 month prior to the party. When booking, fill out the registration form, and send payment. Be sure to fill out the info regarding parent email addresses so e-vite can be sent three weeks prior to party.

Cancellation Policy

Full payment is required at the time of online booking. You have one week from date of payment to cancel the party for a full refund. Canceling thereafter, no refund.


  • Children must be 5 and older.

  • Children under 7 will not be using metal knives as safety is critical.

Food Allergies of Party Guests

Cooking Round the World is not responsible for injuries or food allergy emergencies. Parents must check with party guests before the party to relay if there are any food allergies and if possible, Cooking Round the World will adjust the menu. A parent must be on the premises while the party is ongoing. 

It’s a nice thing for parents to tip our chef educators after the party, to show appreciation. Thank you!
