Events + Happenings

This Week: June 29th through July 5th, 2015

Marcel’s will be closed on Saturday, July 4th so our staff can celebrate the holiday with their families.
 
In the first half of 2015 we have had a very busy kitchen!  During this time we have had 189 classes and private events hosting over 2,600 people – and we are pretty sure just about every single person had a fabulous time! 
 
We are taking a bit of a mid-year break in the kitchen to spruce up, regroup, and charge our batteries so we are ready for what is already shaping up to be a smoking busy second half of the year!
 
Join us on Tuesday, June 30th for our Free Demo from 11 am – 2 pm when Teri will be making her “You Pick the Berry” Trifle.
