Couples Cooking Class - Going Down to Dixie for 2

Share an evening of classic Southern cooking with your sweetheart in this unique class.

Make date night a little more interesting when you bring your significant other out for a night of cooking, learning, and dining Southern-style. Chef Ben’s culinary expertise is expansive and he’ll show you the ropes to making some of your favorite Southern dishes.

First, Chef Ben will teach you how to whip up what is known as the caviar of the South, pimento cheese, atop homemade crackers. Your second course will be crispy Cajun-style shrimp boudin fritters with Creole mustard. Next up, you’ll learn the classic preparation of the soul food standout, smothered turkey wings with Savannah red rice. No Southern meal would be complete without your fourth course, fried chicken with collard greens and cornbread. Your meal ends on a sweet note with homemade banana pudding.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Ben was excellent! The menu was delicious and we enjoyed the things he chose for us. In addition to the amazing meal, Ben was incredibly knowledgable, engaging, and easy to talk to. He was kind enough to let us take over his house and we felt very welcome. I would recommend Chef Ben to anyone who wants a fun, enjoyable experience for French cuisine or anything else he's preparing in the future.

Chef Ben is a food historian - something I did not know even existed - and as such is full of interesting stories and bits of information. Having spent time in New Orleans, his cuisine has a Southern drawl and an authentic flavor of the South. From crispy fried chicken (a recipe he spent 6 years developing) to juicy plum clafoutis it was all delicious and we left inspired to go and cook!

I have been cooking professionally for over twelve years. During that time, I have cooked at restaurants in Seattle, New York City, Paris, and Spain. I am also a trained sommelier and love pairing wine and cocktails with my food. I like to think of my cooking as influenced by travels throughout the United States, Europe, and Africa and a vehicle to understand diverse cultures and peoples.
