At this exciting hands-on cooking party, guests are greeted at the door with a light appetizer, a cocktail, and a name tag. At the spacious Bull Run Distilling Co., guests will enjoy a demonstration of how to create a series of seasonal cocktails they will also get to sample.
Following the tasting, guest will join the Parties That Cook chefs for a lively introductory cooking lesson featuring fun tips such as the fastest way to dice an onion without a tear.
Guests will then break into groups and put their newly learned cooking techniques to the test as they prepare an array of international gourmet appetizers, all while listening to upbeat music and enjoying delicious mini cocktails. When the cooking is over, guests mix and mingle as they savor the 'fruits' of their labor hot from the oven! After the event, copies of the recipes and digital photos are emailed to the group.
