My sister and I attended The Silver Shamrock’s Holiday “Sip and Stem” event. It was a great afternoon trying food, beverages, and making a floral bouquet to take home. Looking forward to attending another class soon!

Jeannie, Event Attendee

We had so much fun at our Charcuterie Board class. The items that were selected were so tasty and the wines were really good too. Deb is knowledgeable and I loved her perspective on sourcing locally and from female-owned small businesses.

Drink Small Wine Club

Our monthly craft wine club includes delicious selections from small-production wineries featuring sustainable, family-owned, and woman winemakers. Each month, the club will focus on different regions, seasons, and unique themes. The lower quantity of these hand-selected wines makes for a higher quality in taste. Pick-up starts on the 1st Thursday of each month 4-6 pm. We will hold your wine for 30 days, and then it will be forfeited and returned to stock. Support SMALL winemakers and join our Drink Small Wine Club today.

Your Questions, Answered.

FAQs

In our experience there are a couple recurring questions that arise with our culinary events and classes. Please check these out, and if you still have any that you are wondering about, give us a jingle or send us a message.

Are your culinary classes and events open to the public?
Absolutely! We try to host a few ticketed events each month, which sell out quickly. Due to the small size of our classes, we don’t accept cancellations less than seven days before the event. Check the calendar above for the class schedule, and reserve your seat today!
What type of culinary experiences do you offer?

Chef Deb hosts Winemaker's dinners, pop-up brunches, charcuterie instruction, floral workshops, wine tastings, soup strolls, and mixology classes. All perfectly paired with her scratch-made cuisine.

Do you host private events in your space?

Absolutely! We look forward to hosting your next book club, work team-building event, or couples wine tasting. We seat up to 40 comfortably next door at our event venue, Forks and Fêtes. Complete the form above to plan your event & reserve your date.

I have an idea or special talent to share for a class, do you want to collaborate?
Sounds fun! We are eager to partner and support other small businesses to share talents. Please reach out to me at deb@thesilvershamrocks.com to discuss.
What about allergies?
Our small kitchen team plans our frequently changing menus offering many choices for various dietary requirements. Food is prepared fresh, and we do our best to reduce the risk of cross-contamination, however we use such a wide variety of ingredients in our kitchen, and because we do not have enough preparation space to keep specific areas of our kitchen allergen free. food prepared in our kitchen may contain, or come into contact with WHEAT, EGGS, PEANUTS, TREE NUTS, SOY, FISH, SHELLFISH, and MILK.
