Xhibition Kitchen

Creating Culinary Memories & Experiences 

The cutting edge venue at the dining halls is the Xhibition Kitchen, located at 11 Speare Place inside Stetson West Eatery. The Xhibition Kitchen, or "XK”, is our version of a Food Network set including a state of the art exhibition kitchen complete with overhead cameras that project onto flat screen high-definition televisions, induction stove tops, yellow granite counters and round top tables for classroom style seating.

Over the past twelve years we have hosted over 380 chef demonstrations, cookbook signings, cooking classes, and interactive display cooking events. James Beard Award nominees and winners including Jacques Pépin, Dana Cowin, Ming Tsai, Amanda Hesser, and The Brass Sisters; local restaurateurs such as Joanne Chang, Jody Adams, and Tony Maws; and television personalities including Travel Channel's Adam Richman, Food Network's Alex Guarnaschelli, and Top Chef Season 10 winner Kristen Kish have all visited the XK.

XK events are free admission: If you would like to attend just the Xhibition Kitchen event without eating lunch in the Stetson West Eatery dining room, please sign in with the cashier and proceed directly to the XK. If you plan to stay for lunch and eat in the dining room, please pay the à la carte meal rate upon entrance. Thank you and enjoy the show!
