At The Cookery, we're doing Chocolate Three Ways. Chocolate begins as a bitter spice and can be transformed to a smooth sweet or savory sauce from appetizer to dessert.

Bitters have made a big comback in the cocktail scene. They are typically very concentrated elixirs made from herbs, spices, and oils. A dash or two can transform a cocktail or turn a plain tumbler of sparkling water into a delightful beverage.
There are many creative bitters makers on the market, including our own local maker Embitterment Bitters. Join us and they will share some of their secrets to help you create your own special blend to add to your bar.
This event will be held at our Cathedral Commons location.
Space is limited

What defines ketchup? Historically, it originated as a fish sauce, blended with vinegar and spices. So why does the modern market only offer us the tomato variety?
'Chups condiments are re-telling the ketchup story. These tangy, savory, and sweet sauces are all-natural and made with vinegar, spices, and whole fruits instead of tomatoes.
Stop by our Shirlington store on Sunday October 16 from 11am - 3pm to taste them for yourself. No added sugars, and all vegan and gluten free! It's ketchup 2.0.
