We have a wide array of classes to choose from, based on country cuisine traditions from around the world. The premise of all our menus is to provide you with easy entertaining solutions that you can replicate at home. Participants leave with recipes in hand and a fresh new approach to seasonal cooking and appreciation of where food comes from.
Aprons and knives are provided for the class. Just remember to wear comfy shoes!
After completing your dishes the class will enjoy their culinary creation together in the farmhouse’s dining room or outside in the scenic screened-in porch. A complimentary sampling of local wines is included.

Private Group classes begins at 9:30am or 10am at the farmhouse. The first 3 hours (or so) are devoted to a combined instruction and hands on cooking class. Your morning will start with a coffee or tea in the sunny dining room where Cynthia will review menu and the day’s activities. This also could include picking a few ingredients in her kitchen garden. Following your class, lunch will be enjoyed together around the pine harvest table, with a complimentary sampling of local wines. Students will learn about the region, its food & wine and the stories behind the menu they will be creating together.
