Door County Activity – Tis the Season

Cranberry Chocolate cake, one of the many recipes shared by the Inn at Kristofer’s at their holiday cooking class.

Terri Milligan, co-owner and chef at the Inn at Kristofer’s, invites the public to begin the holiday season by attending “Tis the Season,” a holiday cooking class and luncheon set to take place Saturday, November 29 at 10 am.

“I always love presenting a holiday cooking class event and this year I am coupling the demonstration class with a festive luncheon,” explained chef Milligan. “This is a great event to bring a friend or loved one to as a special holiday treat.”

Recipes to be demonstrated in the class include a terrific winter squash soup flavored with preserved ginger, spiced pepitas and dried cranberries; homemade sweet potato rolls flavored with autumn spices, a terrific Black Forest cake made with caramelized cranberries, frosted in whipped cream and garnished with homemade chocolate curls, and a delicious chocolate hazelnut biscotti.

Following the cooking class demonstration, participants will enjoy a festive holiday luncheon beginning with a Door County Kir (champagne and cherry juice). Participants will then dine on the soup demonstrated in class, the homemade sweet potato rolls, a terrific Chinese chicken salad and dessert of the Black Forest cranberry holiday cake. Every participant will go home with complimentary chocolate hazelnut biscotti to enjoy.

The demonstration class is approximately one and a half hours in length. Following the class, participants will sit in the main dining room for the holiday luncheon. The price of $48 per person includes the cooking demonstration class, a copy of all the recipes, lunch, tax and gratuity. Registration is limited. To register, call 920.854.9419.

The Inn at Kristofer’s is open nightly (closed Tuesday during the quiet season) for dinner beginning at 5 pm. For additional information regarding the restaurant’s menu, restaurant recipes and special events, visit
