Cooking Class - Southern Style Soul Food

Learn how to infuse Southern dishes with the warmth and soul and bit of indulgence.

In this hands-on class with Chef Conor, you'll learn how to take Southern soul food to the next level. As you work your way through Chef Conor's indulgent three-course menu, you'll learn basic knife skills, sauté work, sauce making, and Southern baking techniques.

You'll begin with an impressive green bean dish that's simple to make, yet complex in flavor and texture. For the main course, fried pork chops bathed in homemade gravy and paired with a refreshing, sweet and tangy salad. For dessert, you'll build the ultimate strawberry shortcake.

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

we really enjoyed our experience and meeting with Conner! the food was delicious and he was super knowledgeable willing to answer questions on things outside of the menu we were tasting. We'll probably do it again but have him come to us.

Well-traveled, experienced Chef Conor will invite you to take a little culinary adventure to the places he has visited and loved -- French, Dutch, Italian and Spanish recipes. Rustic and simple, they are full of colors, textures and flavors that will transport you to the country of your dreams in a second. With his wonderful personality and clear cooking instructions, any party, a date -- or, if you just want to learn how to make trout in browned butter -- you are sure to have a blast!
