Italian, South American, Authentic Asian or the ancient Spice Trail

Our style of classes for 2014 is focusing on a theme or region of cuisine for the night. You will cook 3 or 4 courses in either a hands-on or passive role, whichever you feel most comfortable with, eating each course with matching wines. During the course of the evening you will learn different techniques and recipes to take home in the process.

During the fun evening you will not only learn the secrets of international cuisine but also enjoy the wine selection we have matched to the food.  These classes run from 7 pm until your plates are clean.  Come hungry!
