Fustini's Oils and Vinegars

Types of Classes

Class Types

Fustini’s offers several class options:

VIRTUAL CLASS: Celebrate the joy of cooking right from your home with Fustini's Virtual Cooking Classes.  These interactive classes are led by experienced chefs in our community and invite you to discover new dishes and techniques right from your home. The class fee is per household, so cook along with someone you are comfortable being around or plan to meet your friends virtually via class. These classes are scheduled to run 1 1/2 - 2 hours depending on the class.

DEMONSTRATION CLASS: chef-led with class interaction consisting of questions, conversation and tasting all the generous samples the chef has prepared in front of you. In-person Demonstration classes are based upon chef availability.

INTERACTIVE CLASS: hands-on experience in creating all the recipes guided by the chef. Some classes (eg: grilling) may need to be modified due to city code compliance. In-person Interactive classes are based upon chef availability.

30 MINUTE TECHNIQUE CLASS: Available upon request

  • Techniques 101 - Beginning Oil & Vinegar: Sample meat, pasta, greens, vegetables, fruit and cheese with various Fustini's oils and balsamic vinegars. Learn how different foods to pair with flavored oils and vinegars.
  • Techniques 102 - Dressings & Emulsifications: We will demonstrate how to make three amazing dressings using Fustini's olive oils and balsamic vinegars, along with honey, mustards, fresh herbs and other emulsifiers. Then, you will make your own dressing and sample it on a plate of mixed greens, vegetables and fruit.
  • Techniques 103 - Reductions, Marinades & Glazes: Students will learn how oil and vinegar techniques pair with various foods.  Classes will be able to taste fruity vinegar reductions with cheeses and meats, learn how oils and vinegars pair with various meats in marinades, and taste hot food with a marinade of their own. Students will also get a lesson on making marinades and reductions using Fustini’s oils and vinegars. The food for this class will include mainly meats and cheeses.

COOKING FOR A CAUSE - COOKING CLUB: Love to cook with friends?  Sign up for Fustini's Cooking Club.  Make great food, then enjoy what you've made together.  The best part—a portion of the class fee and 10% of what is purchased that night will be donated to the local, non-profit of your choice.

FUSTINI'S AFTER HOURS: Need a night out with friends? Bring friends and food (we will give appetizer ideas that use Fustini's products!) and have fun at your own private tasting party! Our staff is excited to work with you in planning a fun evening for you and your guests at any one of our four Michigan stores.

OFF-SITE EDUCATIONAL DEMO: Our staff is available to visit your business or event and provide information on using olive oils and balsamic vinegars in healthy cooking.
