Looking for a Christmas menu that’s a little different? We’ll stray a bit from traditional dishes with our menu by introducing a new element of sophistication and elegance while maintaining the familiar seasonal flavorings that make the Christmas table a traditional celebration in its own right. This class will arm you with recipes that will please your whole family and teach you how to prepare an incredibly delicious feast that will make your Christmas bright. Wine pairing suggestions will be discussed and tasted with each course.

What if we cared all of the time the way we care some of the time?
What if we cared when it was inconvenient as much as we care when it’s convenient?
Would your community be a better place?
Would our country be a better place?
Would our world be a better place?
We think so, too.
If you care enough to vote, we care enough to give you a free cup of coffee.
Come into Starbucks on Nov. 4th, tell us you voted, and we'll proudly give you a tall cup of brewed coffee on us.
You and Starbucks. It's bigger than coffee.
