**UPDATE** CLASS ADDED WEDNESDAY 10/5! Also the 9/29 class has SOLD OUT. If you can make 10/5, you’ll have to wait until the week after Christmas 12/28.. Learn how to cook appetizers, finger foods and canapés and pair them with wine. The classes feature a minimum of 12 dishes and 10 wines—usually it’s quite a bit more. The fee for the class is $200 per student. Eliza holds regularly scheduled classes at her restaurant, 221 South Oak, are Thursdays (unless noted otherwise) from 11AM to 2PM. Check the 221 South Oak website for a schedule by clicking here. Eliza is open to private classes and requests for classes not scheduled.

Here’s what’s being said about our classes:

“Just wanted to let you know how fantastic the class was today. I’m glad to be visiting Telluride, and that I could finally make it to one of your classes. The flavors, textures, colors and of course tastes were completely amazing. Really excellent wine pairing as well. I certainly can’t cook like you, but I’ll be giving some of the recipes a try.”

The class takes place at 221 South Oak unless you arrange for a private class. In the Summer months, the garden patio is the perfect spot to enjoy appetizers and drink a glass of wine. Summer appetizer classes are mostly prepared on the grill. Winter classes take place in the Main Dinning Room.
