creme conquest


We are so excited to introduce our newest event: Creme Conquest! This event incorporates the best from your favorite

cooking challenge shows, all within the dazzle and experience at the Creme de la Creme kitchen! Perfect for

corporate events or team building activities, and now open as an upgrade for private classes!

1. prepare your spatulas

On arrival, the group splits into three teams, each manning their own set of kitchen supplies.

The team is given a set of selected ingredients, but no recipe and no name of the recipe- this is where 

the fun begins.

2. fight!

The timer starts, and the team has to cooperate to put ingredients together and try to guess the secret dish.

As soon as time's up, judges will try each dish and grade on a scale of 1-5 in three categories: taste, presentation, and creativity.

3. feast on victory or dine on defeat

Once the competition is over, Paula will reveal the real dishes and the recipes for each to take home, while also teaching

attendees all of the creme tips and tricks that come with other classes. Then, participants then get to feast on the meal

they were trying to guess. After all, competing does make one hungry!



This event runs 2 1/2- 3 hours. Minimum of 8 participants.

meet paula


Paula's home is set on an acreage on the outskirts of Omaha, overlooking the Elkhorn River Valley. Fruits and vegetables from her orchard and gardens make up the wholesome ingredients in her fabulous recipes. Her first loves are her 5 children, her husband, Adrian, and her Frenchies. (And new addition to the family, Scout. Thanks Jake!) Her friends and students mean everything to her. Cooking in her home is an expression of love, which is why she has her own kids and family in the kitchen with her almost every day!

"My love for cooking started at a very young age. My Mom had me in the kitchen baking with her and helping out with family meals. She taught me the importance of good food and sharing it with your  friends and loved ones.

When I was 7 I took my first cooking class series for kids. I was hooked! Later, as a freshman in high school, I learned how to cook out of Julia Childs “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” (French food has been a favorite since then). After high school, and with a move to California, I eventually worked in every area and aspect within the food service industry. I got my hands into whatever I could! From working side by side with a head baker in San Diego to helping chefs create meals they made with their families back in Italy. These, and many other experiences, exposed me to a wide range of culinary techniques and foods from many different cultures. 

I love that I can bring families and friends together to share the love of cooking with each other. My classes are designed for learning, eating, and having fun! I can’t wait to have you in my kitchen! xoxo"
