Chef Brad Events, Have You Been?

If You have never been to one of my Chef Brad Events,  you have missed out.  They are inspiring, fun, and life changing.  In fact a Chef Brad Event will change your life forever.  That's a promise.  

Just what is a Chef Brad Event anyway? 

Its three to four days of me being in your home cooking, teaching, and inspiring you to achieve new heights in food and fun.  You open your home up to friends, family, and other interested persons for classes.    Usually I teach three classes each day from baking to pressure cooking,  soups and salads to desserts, and so much more, and the classes last about 2 hours each.  Usually I will teach one of the nights a Women's Group or Club at the beginning and always on Friday  we do a "Hand's on Dinner Party",  one of my personal favorite classes ever for anyone who wants a great culinary experience. 

Each class comes with recipes, lots of food to eat, and face to face interaction and instruction from me.   They are really inspiring and so much fun.  This is the type of teaching I love the best.  You can ask questions and it really is the perfect learning environment for those who attend.  

How does one get Chef Brad to come to their town or city?

It's really easy.  You can send an email to me at and I will send you information on just how easy it is to have me come and do a Chef Brad Event in your home and area.  Together we can find the perfect time and we will plan the classes that will fit the needs of your family, friends, and area.  

What is the Cost of a Chef Brad Event?

That is the best part, they are really affordable and packed with value for what you get.  Classes range from $40 to $75 per person.   The classes are priced according to what is being taught and the average class is $40 per person.   Classes include recipes, instruction, door prizes, and plenty of food and fun.  
Often when you attend a class your name is put in a drawing for a Grand Prize at the end of the Event.  That changes from Mills to Mixers and other valuable items.   I really work hard on keeping the class prices down and the best way we do that is to help fill them up.  Those of you who have been know that I never cut corners and my goal is to provide you with the best experience possible. 

Some of the ways I keep the cost down is I stay at the host families home.  (I am an easy house guest)  Also often I will drive there, but if it is far I do fly.  I cover the cost of travel, but for that to happen we need to have 100 to 150 persons sign up for classes.  This is pretty simple.  If I teach ten classes for the few days I am there we need 10 to 15 persons per class.  Pretty easy.  We do all we can to promote on our web site and through social media and we ask you to help also.  I can provide you will all the information you need to promote.  

What do you need to host an event in your home?

A kitchen always helps.  Room for 10 to 25 persons seated for instruction.  Functioning appliances, like oven and stove top.  I will go over a more detailed list as we move closer to the event.  It's pretty simple.  I always offer free classes for those who want to assist during the Event.  One person per class and two couples on the Friday night class.  This allows those that might not be able to budget the class and it gives the hostess and me help in prepping and clean up and the helper gets a free class.  Don't stress,  I have been doing this for a long time and it always works out great.  

The calendar fills up fast.  So if your interested don't waste anytime,  just let me know and we can start planning your Chef Brad Event.  

Below is a photo journey of a couple of Chef Brad Events.  It give you an idea of what happens and what to expect.  Enjoy  Chef Brad

We make some pretty great food, this is an Spanish Torte done in the pressure cooker.

A great place to come with friends.

So much to do.  So little time. 

She is so happy.  Inspired to bake bread.  It is as easy as it looks.  

More Bread.  Simple tricks like braiding the bread add flare to bread baking.

Rapt attention,  Even men love these classes. 

There is always a lot of discussions going on during an event. 

For me the best part is getting to know the families I stay with.  After a  few days
together we are family.  I love this part of what I do the most. 

My dear friend I met in Utah,  he moved to Oregon and we were able to hang out cooking all night.
Chef Brad Events bring people together.  

Great date night activity.  They made Kamut Risotto,  it was amazing. 

We go with the flow.  Eric has a commercial pizza oven in his garage so we put it to use.  So much fun.  We even did gluten free pizza. 

Hazelnut cashew fruit platter.  

Red quinoa salmon cakes.  

The pizza was amazing.  

I love teaching and this group loved learning.  

The winner of the Wondermix.  Pretty funny,  Her grandson last August had won
the Wondermill.  Now they have both.  

Don't they say a couple that cooks together stays together.  They sure look happy.

Men doing their favorite thing.  Making gourmet burgers. 

Everyone gets involved.  

Making the Flat Bread.  They sure had a great time. 

We do it all.  

One of the door prizes.  Don't laugh, my private reserve bacon drippings.  

I make vinegars and vanilla for door prizes.  You never know what to expect at a Chef Brad Event.  

Ok the down side is your kitchen is going to be a disaster for a few days.  LOL

A close look at some really great food from the pressure cooker.  

Getting ready for a large women's group meeting.

This group had a great time attending a Chef Brad Evening where they were taught
all about feeding their families and enjoying the process. 

Even the youth love it when Chef Brad comes to town.  Really I was so touched by their sweetness.  The one in yellow said her cheeks hurt from smiling.  It made my day.  

Happy times.  

They had a great date night.  And learned how to make hummus. 

Wow the street corn turned out great.  Happiness makes food better.

Waiting for dinner. Almost ready, but no hurry, enjoying the company. 

These burgers are going to be great.  

What!  Lamb for dinner.  Wow it looks great. 

So happy to be there.  It's fun when I get to meet the husbands and explain why I have cost them
some money this week. 

I don't know where you can go and get a meal like this anywhere. 

My mouth is watering. 

Couscous and Israeli Chicken 

The lamb was grilled to perfection. 

Finished, I cleaned my plate.  The End, but really the beginning.
Get ready for a life changing experience.  Odalisa has hosted me three times in her home
and looks forward to the next time.  


  1. When did you team up with Wonder Mill over Bosch? My Mom and I were thinking of purchasing a Bosch in September now I'm not so sure. We love your show and have really enjoyed everything we have made so far. I quickly learned to cut all the recipes to 1/4 th the size. Even with that we still get 3 servings each.

  2. Chef Brad has been the National Spokesman for Wondermill Wondermix for almost 2 years now. He will tell you if you have a Bosch don't feel bad it is a good Machine but if you Don't have a Mixer yet he will tell you without Question the Wondermix is easier to use , more powerful and is without question his favorite Mixer on the Market. So go get the German designed Engineered Wondermix deluxe Kitchen Mixer. Chef Brads Choice in Mixers!
