Culinary Class Weekend Package

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn to cook several delicious meals over the course of the weekend as well as sample some wines, enjoy wonderful desserts and have an entire weekend of relaxation and FOOD!

This is a date specific package, available only the weekend of October 5-7, 2012 and January 25-27, 2013. Another way to remember this, each year the package usually falls around the last weekends of September and January.

Friday we feature a 5 course wine/chefs’ tasting menu from 6-8pm. As well as learning about 5 great wines you will also taste 5 items and for most people that is dinner when you consider you have a 5 course tasting menu.  Arrive by 5:00pm on Friday and leave the rest of the weekend to us! The wine tasting is from 6-8 and then dinner on your own. But keep in mind that after a 5 course tasting menu most all of previous attendees are full and have not needed anything else, much less a full dinner!

Saturday you will wake up to a fabulous Gourmet 3-course breakfast meticulously prepared from scratch and beautifully served. From the fruit plate, to the main course and then, Yes, dessert. Innkeeper David Worthington takes extra special care to bring you one of the best breakfasts you have ever had. The breakfast is Five star dining, not in it’s formality but in the presentation and quality. The next experience of the day is that you will attend your first of two cooking classes the Gulf Coast Culinary Institute. Saturday afternoon/evening you will attend a Gulf Coast Seafood Extravaganza cooking class. After a brief lecture from the instructor on the foods of the Gulf Coast you will move into the kitchen where you will be instructed on classical and modern cooking techniques for seafood common to the Gulf Coast. Each person is actually at their own station for a “hands on” learning experience. Once all the food is prepared you will move out to the dining room to be served your mouthwatering dinner! That takes care of Saturday with a total of 7 courses of fabulous food!

Sunday you will wake to a light fare of fruit, muffins, coffee and juices and will head back to Gulf Coast Culinary Institute. David Worthington from the Magnolia Springs Bed and Breakfast will school you in healthy ways to prepare excellent tasting breakfast/brunch casseroles and desserts from 9:00am to 12:00pm. You will not need lunch eating this awesome brunch and will depart around noon for home. Again, this is a total weekend of fabulous wines, food and fun!
