Damn Good Coffee and Whiskey Class

Every year we pretend to be Irish while our good friends come and show us how proper Irish Coffee is made. Tim, in a previous life served drinks at Buena Vista Cafe, home of the original Irish Whiskey cocktail. This fun and educational class will teach you how to make a proper Irish Coffee along with which coffees, whiskeys, and creams work best for this delicious concoction. Class includes beverages and your very own traditional glass.

This is a 21+ class. Limited spots available, click link for tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/o/f1rst-avenue-coffee-17593917312

Responsible transportation is advised.

First Avenue Foods; The Savory Biscuit

The savory biscuit we make for 1st Ave customers comes right from my  kitchen.  This delicious and satisfying cheesy biscuit checks off all the boxes as the perfect snack with my coffee or wine or salad. Just ask my friends who I’ve abused with every rendition when invited to dinner – mushroom/onion, broccoli/swiss cheese, gruyere/green onion, pancetta/belicino….


Organic foods have always been a priority without any food group restrictions.  I ate everything except for liver – awful, gross stuff (use to stash in my pockets and shoes when served at our family dinners). Though as I’m writing this I’m scratching my head wondering why I didn’t remove grains from my diet years earlier.  


Diabetes and arthritis runs in my family.  Yet it was breast cancer that made me sit back and take a serious look at the foods I was eating and how they supported my immune system or fed the cancer.  Treatment for cancer is horrific. So I wanted to do whatever I could to beat the crap out of it and for me that meant, in part, removing high glycemic index foods and drink.  So goodbye wheat, corn, rice and a slew of my favorite foods.  
Having grown up in an immigrant Italian family, where every meal was an important social occasion and celebration, I was desperate to create those experiences sans grain.  It’s been 5 years.  I continually experiment with new ideas, new ingredients to make myself, friends and family happy and content – cause lets be real – most happy moments include or evolve around food or drink. 


1st Ave features many of the low glycemic, gluten free, keto and vegan foods I eat and want to share with others who choose to change their diets for a healthier life.
