Delectable Appetizers with Alexandra Stafford

December 10, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm


A great cocktail party is the ideal way to entertain at home for the holidays and beyond and in this cooking class you’ll learn classic appetizers to put your party over the top. Join Cookbook author Alexandra Stafford as she walks us through the basics of delicious hors d’oeuvre.


Finger food (with a perfect cocktail) should tantalize the taste buds and prepare the palate. And in some cases heavier appetizers can become a meal in themselves. Alexandra’s selection of go-to appetizers checks all the boxes from simply savory to oh-so-satisfying.

Join us for this class (just in time for the holidays) and we’ll even mix a special cocktail to go with the tasting after the class!

Menu to include:

  • Marinated olives
  • Roasted marcona almonds
  • Baked fontina with rosemary and thyme
  • Baked camembert
  • Chicken liver pate with homemade melba toast
  • Crostini with homemade ricotta, served two ways: with roasted squash and caramelized onions, and thyme-roasted grapes
  • Warm crab dip
  • Crudité with green goddess dressing

Limited to 12 people.

About Alexandra Stafford

Ali Stafford, author of the hit food blog “Alexandra’s Kitchen” (www.alexandracooks.com), grew up eating her mother’s peasant bread at nearly every meal—the recipe for which was a closely guarded family secret. When her website began to grow in popularity, readers began asking how to make the bread they’d heard so much about. Alexandra’s mother acquiesced, and the recipe got shared, and has since inspired many who had deemed bread-baking an impossibility to give it a try, and their results have exceeded expectations. It all led to Ali’s recent cookbook, “Bread Toast Crumb,” praised by the world’s top-selling baking-book authors including Dorie Greenspan and David Lebovitz. Ali is also a columnist for Food52.com.
