These events are designed to teach our clients everything they need to know how to cook a full meal, all while having fun in a relaxed environment. We enjoy these parties and opportunities as we get to work with you one-on-one!

These classes are both extremely fun and educational. They can be the perfect addition to birthdays, team building, bridal and baby showers, family gatherings, anniversaries, and many more.

Here at R&D, we believe that anyone can cook. Let us share our art with you!



We offer meals prepared ahead of time, to your specifications, packaged and ready to eat, or frozen with simple instructions for you to follow. These offerings are geared towards those always on the move. Whether you’re looking to spend more time outdoors or with your family, or spend less time in the kitchen or at the grocery store, our drop-off dinners are sure to please! Want to drop dinner off to a friend, but simply don’t have time to make it yourself? We have you covered.

We can provide everything needed for breakfast through dinner for a seven day stay, or even just a single meal for the evening. Everything is prepared 100% from-scratch with the freshest ingredients Montana has to offer. We source everything we can locally and regionally so you can taste the best of Big Sky Country!
