We have classes to satisfy your brain and your stomach, for beginner chefs to advanced ones. Throughout the day, cooking, brewing, and herb related classes will be taught. We will have three types of classes: technique and theory, tasting (sampling foods), and hands-on (cooking or prepping food). And everyone will be a chef, as the food prepped in the hands-on classes will be served throughout the day buffet style, with a large buffet feast at the end of the day. Location:
