Demo: Luxe Beauty Skincare @ The North End Store

Luxe Beauty was borne from the vision of chemist Jane May Graves after her mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer.

Her Mother’s diagnosis awakened her to the importance of avoiding toxic personal care products. The skincare offerings in the market fell short of Jane’s expectations and desires.

Refusing to compromise any effectiveness when developing her formulas with the world's top chemists, Jane’s investment in research and testing proved to be invaluable.

Compelled by an immediate customer demand for high quality and pure ingredients, all formulations are plant derived, and made with high concentrations of effective ingredients.

Luxe Beauty was created for health-purist and label readers like you. We refuse to cut corners with chemicals, petrolatum, mineral oil, beeswax, silicones, phthalates, parabens, colors, dyes, propylene glycol.

We avoid filler ingredients such as alcohol, glycerin, beeswax, fruit juices, and cheap oils found in most “natural” skincare products.

Luxe Beauty products are formulated with high concentrations of effective ingredients to awaken your skin's natural glow.

Wine Class: Sparkling Wines of the Roederer Family with Scott Sprague

Wine Class: Sparkling Wines of the Roederer Family with Scott Sprague

BUILDING UPON A 200-YEAR TRADITION OF WINEMAKING EXCELLENCE

Roederer Estate Brut is the first California sparkling wine to be produced by Champagne Louis Roederer, further building upon a 200-year tradition of fine winemaking from this family owned company. Roederer's unique winemaking style is based on two elements: complete ownership of its vineyards and the addition of oak-aged reserve wines to each year's blend or cuvée. Jean-Claude Rouzaud, then president of Champagne Louis Roederer and fifth generation descendant of the founder, selected the 580-acre Anderson Valley vineyard and winery site in 1982. Rouzaud, who has since handed down the family tradition and position to son Frédéric Rouzaud, believed that estate-owned vineyards were essential to ensure top quality wine, and had searched California for ideal growing conditions throughout the course of several years.

Join us for this special tasting with Scott Sprague, Fine Wine Specialist from Idaho Wine Merchant.

Class: Candy Canes with Costello!

Class: Candy Canes with Costello!

You've most likely never thought about making candy canes at home, but in this class with Jon Costello, you will learn how!  Jon will show you how to pull sugar using the “wet cooking method”. Sugar can be used for more than sweetening cakes and muffins. When placed in a pan and melted by itself, using the “dry method”, you can make a delicious caramel by adding cream and butter. When cooking using the “wet method” you boil sugar to a much higher temperature and have it remain crystal clear. By using this method, you are able to blow the sugar into a variety of shapes, pull and tie beautiful sugar bows, flowers, taffy, or even sugar sculptures. 

Jon will send you home with recipes, tips and tricks to use when you start working with sugar. After this class he promises that you will be able to awe your friends and family with this very impressive technique!

In Jon's words:

"My name is Jonathan Costello and I grew up in a small town in upstate NY. It was in this small town that I learned from my Nanny how to make ravioli, bake cakes, and even how to pick mushrooms. This love of cooking took me on to The Culinary Institute of America where I graduated as a pastry chef in 2012. Currently I work at the Boise Co-Op as a baker while I finish my Undergraduate Degree in Pre-Med and Chemistry."
**This class is not appropriate for children under age 10.**

Wine Class: Celebrate With Champagne!

When it comes to celebrations, nothing makes the occasion as special as the real deal—Champagne—perhaps the world’s most famous wine.

Join Divit Cardoza as he shares his deep knowledge of this historic region. Champagne, the wine, is named after the region where it is grown, fermented and bottled: Champagne, France. Nestled in the country’s northeastern corner, near Paris, the only labels that are legally allowed to bare the name “Champagne” are bottled within 100 miles of this region (according to European Law). In addition to location, Champagne also receives its distinguished name because of the grapes used to produce it. Grown in a mild climate with chalky and mineral rich soil, the flavor of these grapes is truly unique. 

This tasting will include appetizers and desserts from the Co-op Kitchen.

This is one of our most popular tastings and sells out quickly, make your reservations early!
