Chef Emil Hosts Holiday Cooking Classes Starting in October

Last winter, Executive Chef Emil Nymander brought a new dimension to the culinary menu of events at the winery with his full immersion cooking classes.

Not only does Colloca Estate Winery produce some of the region’s finest wines, we’ve also built a reputation for gourmet food at our Wood Fired Kitchen, Wine Pairing Dinners, Brunches, Private Events and Wedding Receptions.

Held in our modern 3,200 square foot commercial kitchen, Chef Emil hosts a hands-on culinary experience for cooks of all skills in a delightful, relaxed atmosphere. 

The intimate classes are limited to 20 persons. Upon arrival, students are given aprons to wear and a glass of wine as they jump right into the mix of learning and preparing the evening’s recipes. The evening culminates with the group dining on their creations all together with a pairing of Colloca Wines.

There are three classes this year. The first one – The “Autumn” Class is Friday, October 18th. November’s Thanksgiving Cooking Class is Friday, November 22nd and in December, he’s hosting the Holiday Class which will focus on baking, on Thursday, December 19th.

The class, food and wine are all included in the $75 per person per class price (all 3 classes are available on-line with a pre-pay price of $200, a great Holiday gift!) And, wine club members can save 10%.

Reservations are necessary and you can sign up on-line or by calling Colloca Estate Winery at 315-947-2069.
