Taste Seattle: Cooking Class with Hipcooks and Anew Wines
When we first moved to Seattle, I looked into taking a cooking class as a way of meeting new friends and couples. First, we were too overwhelmed with wedding planning and then with work, so our plan of taking a cooking class never came to fruition. That's why I was so excited to be invited to taste Seattle through a cooking class at Hipcooks Seattle with a wine pairing featuring Anew Wines.

Hipcooks

Hipcooks, set in several cities in the US, offers hands-on cooking classes that end in a dinner party with wine (no minors allowed)! The Seattle location of Hipcooks, located in the South Lake Union neighborhood, is beautiful. The walls are lined with cooking gadgets and cookbooks and surround a gorgeously set table and cooking station.

Cooking

Our chef, Bonny, was lively, approachable, fun, and fueled my love for cooking. Those of us in attendance were put to work right away: cutting oranges, toasting pine nuts, zesting lemons, and cutting basil. Little did we know that we were making all the food on this fantastic menus:

Wine!

I was blown away by Anew Wines. Anew, a brand made by Chateau St. Michelle, specializes in white wines. In addition to the amazing taste, Anew Wines feature a screw top so it's the perfect wine to take out on a picnic. The wines are great on their own or in one of these fabulous cocktails.

    That sounds like such a fun evening! Everything looks so good, and I love the fact that you get to help make dinner and that they do all the wine pairings for you!

  • I love the idea of taking a cooking class to meet new people – and what a perfect idea, having one end in a social dinner party! Totally going to go looking for something like this when we move this summer!

  • Oh my goodness, yum!

  • This looks like such a fun evening! I would love to do something like this and learn a bit about pairing wine and food!

  • This looks amazing, and a really great way to meet new people … this may be something I try out doing too as I need a bit of inspiration for food and love it can be combined with something more sociable.

  • What a fabulous idea, and I love your pics!

    Nicole! Rebecca here–I am snowed in here in Portland and catching up on blogs. When did you do this class? I took one here summer of 2015 and recommended it to Matt. Was he there? You should take one with him! Aren’t they so fun? The teacher is a gem.
