Pampered Chef: Sales Power Cooking Clinic

    I'm going to be doing a Power Cooking Clinic at a show. I had a guest tell me she needed to take a cooking class so I offered to do this for her and her friends.

    I'm thinking I'll set up stations and everyone will bring their own ingredients, including the pre-cooked meat.

    I have a few things to figure out and I'm hoping you all can help!

    1. Do we do just one recipe and everyone gets to take home 3 of the same? I was thinking we'd cook one while we're there.

    2. What Power Cooking recipes use a lot of tools? When I've done a Power Cooking show in the past, I found I was using a lot of canned stuff and not a lot of tools other than the can opener!

    3. What's the best way to organize it? Should we give everyone the recipe steps and outline the stations? How do I talk about product when everyone will be working at the same time?

    4. I want to make sure the focus is still sales and bookings. I don't want it to be all about cooking the recipe and then everyone walk away with their food and not buying anything. Any suggestions to make sure this happens?

    eta: Ok I've been doing some reading and I'm liking what I'm finding! The only thing I'm thinking is most of the workshops and clinics that seem to be posted are on a much larger scale than what I'm planning. I'm definitely going to do a power cooking workshop in the fall, perhaps at a church or something like that.

    Do you think it's feasible to do this on a much smaller scale at a host's home? I don't want it to be too crazy because I do want bookings and I want recruit leads.
