Flying Aprons Tucson is now hosting virtual cooking classes

The mission is to get you cooking, educating your mind and palate for unforgettable experiences

The majority of the year, many people have been spending time at home, rather than seated at a table outside one of Tucson’s talented kitchens.

Why not bring their delicious bites and cocktails to your own kitchen then?

Via Zoom, Whiskey Del Bac’s brand ambassador Jax Donahue and chef Devon Sanner are working together to share flavor combinations and pairings from 5:30 – 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 10.

During the “Shaken Not Stirred: Single Malt Whiskey Tucson Style and Savory Bites” class you’ll learn to create three tasting snacks that’ll spice up “cocktail night” at home.

Spots in the cooking class are $40 per person and will be live on Zoom. Additionally, you can pick up a Cocktail Kit, a Pre-Mixes Only Kit, and the Savory Bites Kit if you don’t already have the following ingredients.
