Happy Holidays! We’ll be jingling ours as we offer FREE tastings of wine, spirits &Â artisan food,
live local music and chef demo & tastings!Â We’re celebrating Third Fridays this week with a Holiday Open House at The Culinary Center of Kansas City at Local Life in Downtown Overland Park.
We’ll feature Elle Lebeaux ‘Naughty Elf’ and White Winds ‘Chaos’ & ‘Mischievous’ at our free wine tasting station. These local wines will have you feeling jolly!Â (I mean… how can you NOT smile when trying a wine call Naughty Elf, right?)
Not one but TWO great distilleries will be offering tastings this month. Try out some Defiance Whiskey and spirits from Weston’s Holladay Distillery!
Our featured Local Maker of the Month is Boozy Botanicals. And they’ll be here with samples of their delicious flavors of simple syrup.Â We’re offering 10% off your Boozy Botanicals purchases this month, and we have lots of other great gift ideas, stocking stuffers and gift certificates available in our Kitchen Shop, so finish up your holiday shopping while you’re here!
Culinary Center cooking instructor Daniela Mancinelli-Abel will be demonstrating how to make focaccia bread with a variety of toppings. Not only will you get a recipe to take home and try out on your own party guests, the samples will be amazing!
Dan Bliss will be entertaining us with live music…Â and we may even be able to talk him into a few Christmas carols where we could all join in!Â We will have a cash bar and small plates of food available for sale, so plan on staying for awhile to enjoy the fun.
You think that’s a lot going on?!Â Wait…. there’s more!
That’s all just right here at The Culinary Center. There’s so much going on in the Downtown Overland Park area Friday night that you’ll want to spend some time walking around in our winter wonderland.Â Click here for a listing of Local Life activities.
