Here is a brief description of what takes place at each seminar:

For the event, guests are seated at a long table along with up to seven other attendees. Your place at the table is set with everything you need to participate in the workshop.

At some events, the place setting includes ingredients for making receipes. Some workshops are tasting experiences. So instead of ingredients, an assortment of wine or other beverages along with the food pairings will be set at the table.

Speakers are introduced and then the seminar begins.  At the end of the workshop, the featured speakers may welcome guests to come up and share questions or comments.
