"GRAZING" THE NEW ENTERTAINING CRAZE      

Hands-On $60   

Not sure what “grazing” is? For your next soiree, don’t worry about having a set menu whether it’s for a dinner or for a cocktail party. Guests “graze” from a buffet of various foods using small plates. It is a variety of dishes and when one is empty, it can be replaced with something totally different. Instead of having 8 dishes that feed 25, you can have 15 dishes that feed 6 or 8. You are already thinking way too much work but actually it is less work because the dishes are simple, no need to worry about back up food and you can change the food as many times as you like. Join us for a fun, new way to entertain. We will focus on small appetizer plates as well as a great charcuterie board. The focus of this class will be the creation of our table using some Whole Foods products as well as creating some recipes. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us! 615-440-5117

It is actually a simple form of entertaining with the guests using small plates to “graze” over several hours. A bite here, a bite there. For the hostess, no need to worry about replenishing items, just replace them with something else or when it’s gone, try something else!!
