A culinary concept shop and demo kitchen located in Kingston’s historic Stockade District, the Bluecashew Kitchen Homestead presents “Learnin’ at the Homestead,” a series of hands-on classes with accomplished food and drink professionals.

The series kicks off with “Built, Shaken & Stirred” on Thursday, January 25 at 6 p.m. In this 90-minute class, the Stockade Tavern’s founder and master mixologist Paul Maloney explores the history of rye and teaches participants how to make three classics: the Old-Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and the Manhattan. Esquire Magazine named the Stockade Tavern one of America’s Best Bars. The workshop costs $65 per participant.

Maloney will also be teaching a Lovers’ Cocktails class on Feb. 14 and one on St. Pat’s drinks on March 15. For information, visit www.facebook.com/bluecashewkp. Bluecashew is located at 37B North Front Street in Kingston.
