How it works

After an hour at the market, teams return to Blue Ribbon where a short appetizer and beverage reception await them. Then the cooking portion of the competition begins! All meals are served together on a large buffet. A great option for pleasing many palates! Judging takes place behind the scenes and the winning team is announced during dessert.

We want to make sure every guest has an enjoyable meal that is safe for them to consume! We host vegetarian or guests with other dietary concerns daily. Please be sure to share your dietary needs with us when booking your event. With the Classic Iron Chef and other competitive style formats we usually ask all teams to create vegetarian side dishes. If you have enough vegetarians, you might also choose to make one team vegetarian. With other dietary concerns, dependent upon the number of teams, we ask each team to create a designated number of their savory dishes compliant with the dietary needs of your guests. With individual ingredients or unusual one-off ingredients, we’ll coordinate with you during the planning process to either eliminate them from the competition or have them labeled on your buffet.

Since 1995, Blue Ribbon Cooking School has been at the forefront of the Seattle food and entertaining scene, changing with the times, the trends and the needs of our clientele.

Over the years our motive has been to bring the family back to the dining room table to enjoy homemade meals together. We’ve not only accomplished our objective with the vast variety of hands-on cooking classes and events that we host but we have also expanded upon it.

After many requests we began a catering segment of our business that specializes in elegant catered events for both private and corporate clients. We have become most known for our bountiful family-style catering that is regularly shared at weddings and other events throughout the Puget Sound area.
