Take the opportunity to experience  what goes on behind the scene  in a commercial  kitchen environment. As the chef is preparing a dish he will walk your guests through the process and explain why certain things are done in the kitchen. As the chef is interacting with your guests we welcome you to enjoy the tasting which will be especially prepared for your group. Once the chef is complete we invite the guests to ask questions that you might not normally  have the opportunity to ask to ask a chef.

After your kitchen lesson and tasting is complete your guests will make their next stop at The Pit. “The Pit” proudly continues the tradition of BBQ by serving authentic whole-hog, pit-cooked barbecue in downtown Raleigh's warehouse district. A celebration of all of the great culinary offerings of the Old North State, The Pit has made a name for itself as the destination for the state's signature cuisine. The pigs used to produce the barbecue are all raised in North Carolina using free-range farming practices, and the freshest of the state's bountiful produce is featured in the starters, sides and desserts.

After receiving a taste of BBQ from The Pit we invite your guests to step into Raleigh’s very own chocolate factory, Videri. Take a short stroll across the street to Videri Chocolate Factory which invites you to come see how chocolate is made. The doors are open to everyone that is curious about the process and flavor of handmade bean-to-bar chocolate. They source every ingredient to insure a high quality, responsible chocolate for all to enjoy.
