News from Scout supporter RauDZ Regional Table

Kelowna, BC | Muddlers, infused spirits and blenders replace textbooks, calculators and #2 pencils in a cocktail classroom launching January 16th at RauDZ© Regional Table. Led by award winning mixologist Liquid Chef Gerry Jobe these “Liquid Sundays” have taken the traditional concept of a cooking class and the non-traditional curriculum of cocktails to develop an eight week program.

No prerequisites required other than an interest in the cocktail culture and to have some serious fun! Liquid Sundays begin January 16 with a look at the “field to glass” philosophy of the restaurant and the use of locally farmed ingredients in cocktails. Throughout the term subjects covered also include Whiskeys & Bourbons and the appreciation of raw spirits, a look into Artisan Beers and a creative session called The X-Factor with Matt Majid, who is currently third in the world for flair bartending where he’ll demonstrate some trade secrets to entertain your guests. In a kitschy kind of mood? Try out Tiki Night where class will be in session with Okanagan interpretations of the classic beach & boat drinks!
