Chef-Celebrity Cooking Class at Work Options for Women

Elise Wiggins

Learn the secrets behind one of Denver’s best restaurant kitchens by joining Chef Elise Wiggins of Panzano Restaurant and Lori Midson, Westword’s Café Society Editor.

Elise is the Executive Chef from Panzano Restaurant; from beginnings in Louisiana to Texas, through Colorado, Puerto Rico, Tennessee and now back to Colorado, Wiggins has purposely and progressively moved up through the ranks – constantly honing her kitchen skills, tasting new flavors, managing more people and developing the talents that have won fine dining awards and accolades.

Lori is a restaurant critic and food/travel writer by trade, a shoe slut by choice (106 pairs and counting) and a PTA member by pressure. She spends most of her time scouring restaurants, traveling and writing in her home dungeon (some would call it an office, but they would be delusional) littered with menus, cooking magazines, newspapers, dog hair and the occasional foreign object.

This hands-on class will be held at Café Options at 1650 Curtis Street from 6:00PM – 8:00PM on Wednesday, November 14th.  Visit www.workoptions.orgto make your reservation – space is limited to ten participants!
