Los Angeles: Kitchen Meets Bar Class at Spork Foods

Posted on May 16, 2014 by Natalie Bovis

Teaching is my favorite thing to do in the liquor business. Whether training distributors’ sales teams, doing an on-premise spirits talk in bars and restaurants, or teaching a cocktail class for the everyday person who loves to entertain, sharing my passion for mixology keeps my own fire ignited. I particularly love teaming with a cooking school because it really exemplifies that following a cocktail recipe is not more complicated than making a cake.

I really love teaming up with the lovely ladies at Spork Foods in West Hollywood. Their all-vegan cooking school not only focuses on healthy, easy-to-make dishes but Jenny and Heather deliver the information with all the snappy fun of a one-two duo at an improv theater. It’s Los Angeles at its best!

This week, we presented a Kitchen Meets Bar cocktail class, based on the name of my video series Edible Cocktails: Kitchen Meets Bar, in which I use ingredients in both food and drink. The gals and I paired healthy appetizers with drinks using market-fresh ingredients, and the students got to make, nibble and drink the fruits of our (and their) labor. It was a blast! Here are some recipes for you to consider for your next party:
