About the event

Join us for our next cooking class!

After YEARS of requests for this type of experience, we are thrilled to now offer a monthly cooking class to our ever-growing list of events! These hands-on monthly classes are held in our North Park location. They provide a fantastic way to learn how to prepare two different items, each paired with a different wine. Attendees are provided kits that include the ingredients and tools to prepare each item on the day's menu. To assist with time, some ingredients may be prepared or partially prepared ahead of time. Please be prepared for chopping, mixing, plating and other cooking tasks. During the first 45 minutes you’ll have a 5 oz glass of wine to enjoy while preparing the ingredients for your 2-course lunch. During this time, we’ll also discuss the paring aspect of the different ingredients with each wine. For the second half of the class, we’ll focus on plating technique and enjoying our creations alongside the two paired wines. This unique and dynamic environment will allow for some imparting of knowledge, but also just a chance for wine and food lovers to converse about the many facets of wine, food and the culture of both. 

For our November Cooking Class, we’ll feature two versatile, dishes, each highlighting some ingredients you might have an abundance of after Thanksgiving. Dare we say leftovers! Both recipes can be served as appetizers or served as a larger portion as a full meal and are likely to steal the show from their inital preparation on Thanksgiving Day! Each attendee will have their own courses to enjoy. At the end of the class, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase the wines presented. Recipes are emailed to attendees. These events are a great way to enjoy a light lunch experience. You do have the option during check out to add on a cheeseboard and/or bottle of bubbles to make the event a bit more substantial way to enjoy your afternoon. Stay for the Wine Interactive, following the cooking class. Details on this month's Wine Interactive can be found HERE. Add on your tickets during registration and save $10/seat by attending both events!
