Celebrate the season with one—or all three—of COCA’s NEW holiday-themed pop-ups!

The holidays are quickly approaching, and celebrations might look different than they have in the past. COCA’s Home for the Holidays workshops provide holiday-themed culinary experiences for you to enjoy from the comfort of your home.

Gather family and friends (virtually) and spread holiday cheer as you learn different culinary techniques and master a holiday cocktail/mocktail during a live Zoom class; then, prepare the rest of your meal at your own pace following a recorded step-by-step video with cooking instructions.

$75 per household, per event | $200 for all three

To register for all three sessions, contact the Registration Office at 314.561.4898.

All Home for the Holidays sessions are for ages 21 & up. Each crate provides two servings.

You must list any food restrictions or food allergies under “special needs” on the registration form or call COCA at least two weeks prior to the session to provide information about allergies. Grocery box available at COCA for pick up the Tuesday before workshop at COCA.
