Culinary: Cocktail Party Planning and Preparation (2016-3926) SOLD OUT

 (1 day)
Ages: Adult
Members - $48.00 / Non-Members - $58.00

Saturday, April 29 | 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Louise Richardson is one of the busiest caterers around because her way with “tasty tidbits” is so winning. She will share her know-how and recipes for savory and sweet “finger-food” (think one-or-two-bites), perfect for light entertaining – cocktail parties, receptions, or just an appetizer before dinner. And you just might make dinner out of several of these – served at home, on the deck, on a picnic or by the lake. The emphasis is on mapping out a plan that doesn’t trap you in the kitchen while everyone else mixes and mingles. Also included will be information on timesaving strategies, tools, techniques, and sourcing. Louise has planned to feature new recipes, so if you came to the hors d’oeuvre class in 2015, come again!

Call 607-936-4647 to be added to the wait-list.
