Who is behind 29 Cooks?
Cindie Feldman has a passion for all things food. Her vision to bring 29 Cooks to life was shaped by her desire to not just cook high quality, delicious food for her clients, but to also allow an avenue for people of all ages who want to play in the kitchen. Cindie’s love of cooking is inspired by her late grandmother, who was known both for her talent in the kitchen and her desire to make people feel good by cooking for them. Cindie’s husband Kevin joined her in the kitchen along with her son Marc (Chef), her niece’s Brittany(Manager), and Codie who is a prep cook while attending Cedar Crest College. Her culinary team is complete with Lindsay, Dayon, Jake, Josselyn, Sarah and occasionally others who love to cook and help out when things are cooking! She and her team hope you will join them in a culinary adventure of your own!
What is 29 Cooks?
We are primarily caterers, specializing in carryout/pickup catering with full service available. On Tuesday, we have Takeout Tuesday, where our customers can enjoy ready to cook, fresh meals in small portions. The menu changes weekly and the place is buzzing with people picking up food for the week, or just for dinner that day. But there’s more…29 Cooks loves to cook with people! Offering kids workshops, Summer cooking camps, and private group Adult Cooking parties is the way they share their passion and let people learn to follow their palate and learn recipes in a fun relaxed setting.
What is an adult cooking party?
Private Cooking parties are a really unique and fun experience! Your group can be family, friends, or maybe even some co-workers. On the adult cooking party tab on our website, you can pick a theme being offered for the season. As always it is byob, but we supply everything else. Click here for more information.

What is Corporate Team Building?
Have a team that is looking for a fun activity, or maybe a team that just doesn’t seem to want to work together? We will customize a team building workshop for your group that allows them to create and problem solve together while having a fun learning session. Our facility has wi-fi and is equipped to have an all-day group meeting with full catered meals in a quiet private environment with parking. Groups of twenty or thirty are a perfect size for our space. We truly feel food brings people together and you will too! Check out our Cooking Party info under the Adult Culinary Tab!
