Entertaining with Ease Series: Holiday Hors d'Oeuvres
This is a Hands-on Cooking & Wine Experience
Join chef and hostess extraordinaire for an unforgettable evening of holiday fun, laughter and fabulous flavors. Move over ordinary appetizers and make room for easy, make-ahead holiday hors d’oeuvres that will keep you out of the kitchen so you can join the party and enjoy your friends. You’ll learn how to effortlessly transform fresh ingredients into a dazzling assortment of small plates packed with big flavors and discover just how easy it is to whip up crowd pleasing recipes for holiday entertaining.
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 of your meal while you enjoy a sip of 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. If you would like to add more wine to your experience, you can taste 32 different wines in our Enomatics (wine dispensing system) or you can order wine by the glass or bottle.
