Cooking Class - Contemporary Colorado Cuisine

Create contemporary Colorado cuisine that mimics the majesty and beauty of the Centennial State's landscape.

In this hands-on class, Colorado native Chef RJ will showcase the best of Rocky Mountain eats and Colorado flavors, including four corners cuisine, indigenous Colorado ingredients, and even some Tex-Mex influences.

You will begin by learning a few kitchen basics from crusting a rack of Colorado lamb with blue corn to making tender tamale dumplings out of masa de harina and featuring local goat cheese. And for dessert, you will prepare simple, yet indulgent Colorado mountain beignets with assorted fruit compotes, local honey and lavender custard.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef RJ was a knowledgeable and friendly guy that made us the most enjoyable vegan meal. We learned quite a lot about the nutritional aspects, and picked up techniques to round up our skill set. Highly highly recommended!
