The flavorful journey is led by instructor Nina Tapia and includes notes on local history and culture, techniques from chefs and grandmothers, tips on Fredericksburg wineries and restaurants, and no shortage of wisdom about food, wine and life. Sign up today for one of our scheduled theme classes, or talk with us about a customized class for your group of 8 to 20, in our new theater classroom or gathered around our friendly Cooking Table. We even accommodate vegetarians and others with special dietary needs. Now that, in this land of longhorns, BBQ and chili without beans, is what we call a big Hill Country welcome!
A typical two-hour cooking class - whether devoted to German, Italian, New Orleans, Caribbean or any other world cuisine, blends demonstration and storytelling with hands-on kitchen experience as desired by the students. Regular classes, Vintner Dinner classes, and Guest Chef classes are a full and satisfying meal: five courses prepared and served with white and red wine. Questions are always welcome, and answers are given within the context of a fun leisure experience - a true culinary adventure.
