Butter Tasting at Aurora Cooks! 11:30 am
January 5 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm$30.00
Join Grace Mattingly at Aurora Cooks—the Inns of Aurora’s stunning new demonstration kitchen—for a relaxed and educational tasting experience. After a champagne toast, gather around the island or have a seat at a nearby table as though you’re at a chef’s home kitchen and enjoy all of the comforts afforded by an outstanding host.
With delectable tastes and take-away tips for applying expert techniques in your own home, this 60-minute tasting is an engaging and intimate culinary experience. Enjoy a glass or two of wine, a craft beer, or a hand-blended cup of tea as you watch, learn, and taste the magic behind a truly well-made meal.
In this edition of Aurora Cooks, we’ll explore butter.
Let’s be honest: many of our favorite comfort foods—popcorn, toasted bread, steamed artichokes—are really just an excuse to enjoy some butter. As delicious as it is, butter can be taken to new heights with the techniques we’ll showcase in this tasting, including browning, baking, and compounding. Paired with fresh bread, raw vegetables, and local salts, the variety of butters we present will offer a surprising and sophisticated tasting experience.
Please register in advance. Doors open and check-in begins 10 minutes prior to start time. Classes begin promptly.
Round out your visit with dinner at 1833 Kitchen & Bar. Reservations strongly encouraged.
