When do you announce the class schedule?

We announce classes approximately one month in advance at the beginning of each month. For example, within the first week of January (if not on the first day), we post the class schedule for the month of February on our website.
*The best way to keep informed about upcoming classes and events is to subscribe to our mailing list.

Where do you source your food?

Heirloom Kitchen prides itself in sourcing ingredients with integrity. When possible we use organic/local produce, dairy, grains, poultry and meat. We have a relationship with Whole Foods Market, Local 130 Seafood, Harvest Drop, Caputo Brothers Creamery, Hauser Hill Farms, Llama Mama Good Farm, and Oak Grove Plantation just to to name a few of our sources

What’s provided to each student?

While each class is different, typically everyone will have a station with a cutting board, the necessary utensils, and an apron to wear during class. Additionally, a post-class email which includes the recipes covered during class is sent to each student.

Do you have a liquor license? Or are you a BYO?

We are BYO; however, we are also a showroom for Dominico Winery, which enables us to offer their award-winning wines by the bottle at retail prices! Dominico is a family owned and operated boutique winery located in San Carlos, California specializing in Italian varietals. Visit our Restaurant page and scroll down to view the wine list.

Do you accommodate Vegan/Vegetarian/Gluten Free diners?

We are always happy to accommodate Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten Free diners. If we are not currently offering a suitable option on our menu, please do not hesitate to let your server know, and our Chef will create a dish based on the seasonal ingredients on hand.

Why are you only open as a restaurant Friday through Sunday?

Heirloom Kitchen is designed as multifaceted culinary center. We are a Chef’s Table restaurant Friday/Saturday/Sunday when restaurants are most successful, and during the first half of the week, traditionally slow restaurant nights, we are here as a resource to the community, hosting public cooking classes, private events, corporate team builds, etc.
This helps us keep things fresh as well as create and maintain balance—in our staffing, in our hours, in our stress levels, in our quality of life!

Can you give examples of some of the private events that Heirloom Kitchen hosts?

Our events range from a girls-night-out to team-building corporate events. We can use our space for networking groups, luncheons, supper-clubs, surprise birthday parties, bridal showers, bachelorette/bachelor parties, rehearsal dinners, and wedding celebrations—just to name a few.

What’s included in my Heirloom event?

• Featured Chef Instructor, Culinary Assistant, Server(s), and Dishwasher
• Our selection of French china, flatware, glassware and linens
• Ambiance with dimmed lighting with assorted candles and table top arrangements
• The privacy of our entire space with the ability to create your own intimate environment

Can I have a DJ or band play at my event?

DJs and small bands are typically allowed when coordinated and confirmed with us ahead of time.

How long do the private events usually last?

A typical event runs 3 hours. If you would like to have an event lasting longer than three hours, there will be an additional charge of 15% of your priced out event per hour.

Do you offer off-site catering?

Occasionally Heirloom Kitchen will cater an off-site event depending on its date and size. Please inquire about your specific event with management.

Is alcohol provided for private events and/or classes?

We are BYO; however, we are also a showroom for Dominico Winery, which enables us to offer their award-winning wines by the bottle at retail prices! Dominico is a family owned and operated boutique winery located in San Carlos, California specializing in Italian varietals. Our wine list is enclosed in the package.

How do we go about picking a menu that’s right for our event?

If you know what you are looking for, let us know! We love to customize and make each event special, seasonally driven and unique. We are happy to propose crowd pleasers for your style event and of course work with any allergens in your party. To receive our event package, email us at info@heirloomkitchen.com

Can you suggest a florist for our event?

Yes! We have a great relationship with Whole Foods Market in Marlboro (just 4 miles south of Heirloom Kitchen) and they make beautiful custom arrangements. We also love AP Greenery in Asbury Park. The owner, Zac, sources beautiful flowers and plants.

How long does each class last?

Most classes are about 2.5 hours.

How old do you have to be to attend classes? Can I bring my baby/toddler?

Our starting age for classes is 13 years of age. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate children who are not old enough to participate in the class. The pricing for the classes are as published and do not change based on age. If a parent/guardian accompanies their child to a class, they are welcome to stay and wait; however, they must have purchased a seat for themselves if they wish to participate.

Do we have our own stations?

The short answer is: No.
We are set up as a residential kitchen, so classes are oriented around a single (albeit large) kitchen island where our chefs will instruct and demonstrate the relative techniques while inviting plenty of hands-on opportunities.

Do we cook each recipe ourselves or in groups?

The recipes are cooked communally in collaboration with our chefs culminating in a class meal shared around our farm table.

Do we get copies of the recipes?

Yes, a post-class email which includes the recipes covered during class is sent to each student.

What dining options do you have?

We offer an exclusive chef’s table seating around our kitchen island, where guests can watch Chef Viana and his team prepare and artfully present their dishes, as well as communal seating at our Farm Table (which may be reserved for larger parties) and a traditional dining room.

Is there an extra charge for the Chef’s Counter? Is there a special tasting menu offered?

There is no extra charge to sit at the Chef’s Counter, and there is not a special tasting menu; our menu is the same for the entire restaurant.

Who is Domenico Winery?

Dominico is a family owned and operated boutique winery located in San Carlos, California specializing in Italian varietals. Their grapes are sourced from all over California.

Do you mail a physical gift card? Can I print out a gift card from the website?

We typically mail gift cards out within two to three business days. You will receive a physical gift card, a printed receipt, and additional Heirloom Kitchen collateral. Unfortunately, you cannot print gift cards from the website.
