Cooking Class Events
We offer a monthly Cooking Demonstration and Tasting Night each month for just $10 cash purchase and just $15 for spots reserved with credit card! Be sure to check our Calendar of Events below and our store Facebook Events section for upcoming demo and tasting nights!
Each Tasting Night will feature 3 dishes made with our olive oil and balsamic vinegars instead of the salt, sugar, and preservative filled marinades on grocery store shelves. You will be shown how to prepare the dishes, take home a copy of the featured recipes, and sample each of the 3 recipes prepared for you. Dishes typically include a combination of main dish, side dish, drinks, desserts, and appetizer type recipes. There is also time for socializing and questions as well as after hours sampling of the nearly 50 oils and balsamics we carry and the chance to purchase any that you would like to take home that night.
