Freestyle Reservation + Inquiry Form

All the things included with a reservation or package at Cookhouse - from the appetizer forks all the way to the customizable table for up to 30 guests, disposables like to-go / takeaway containers and plastic wrap, often forgotten items like birthday candles (and lighters), and kitchen equipment like bread knives, pots and pans, and our three ovens. Not to mention our expertise and, should you wish, our slightly embarrassing music playlists.
