Courtney has been delivering the ultimate dining and entertainment experience to the private sector.


Her experience as a personal and private chef, on-site caterer and culinary coach has grown into so much more. 


A native Texan, Chef Courtney launched The Fusion Table in Temecula, CA in 2014. Her wide-ranging experience, top-notch guest services and love of all things food quickly flourished into a much larger vision. 


In 2018, Chef Courtney and her family relocated home to Texas and chose to plant roots in Granbury. The next step?  


The Fusion Table is going brick and mortar, opening off the Historic Granbury Square, February 2020. The new suite, in a historical building that was once an art gallery, will host a unique private culinary studio, cooking school, and private dining venue. The Fusion Table team is excited to bring this experience to you!


And like everything they do, it’s not only first-class, it’s in a class of its own!

And, oh, the cuisines you can learn to prepare!


Here’s a sampling: Italian, Spanish, French, Thai, Latin American, Mexican, Rustic American, Indian and Fusion Cuisines.


Under the skillful hand of your instructor, you’ll learn proper knife skills, cooking techniques, and use a variety of equipment most of us have in our own kitchens.

You can also find a class where handcrafted pasta, cheeses, doughs, breads, and desserts may be on the menu. Each month there are 30 different classes to choose from.


Each instructor writes her own “made from scratch” class.  It’s truly a one-of-a-kind culinary experience.
