This is a Hands-on Cooking & Wine Experience
Opa! Sail through the Mediterranean sea exploring the beautiful, bold flavors of the Greek Isles. Learn traditional Greek techniques incorporating fresh herbs, local produce and the famous trinity of Mediterranean cuisine: olive oil, wheat and wine. Discover the tantalizing flavors and wines of Greece and learn how to effortlessly re-create the essence of the Mediterranean life at home.
You will first be met with a reception wine and light appetizers. You'll have a striking view of our impressive open demonstration kitchen. You'll don your apron, roll up your sleeves and Chef will walk you through the preparations your meal while you enjoy a sip your wine! Once you've completed your meal, you will sit down and enjoy it. You will also experience wines paired with the beautiful meal you've created.
Throughout the evening you'll learn about the recipes, food preparation, and the "why" behind the wines we pair with the meal.
All AWS cooking classes include an emphasis on wine, because that's who we are! You can expect 2 different wines to sample during reception/cooking and two wines paired with your meal for a total of approximately 3+ glasses.
