I am really delighted to announce that we will be offering a series of cooking classes at the Carolina Bed & Breakfast this winter. Cooking with Susan: Lessons and Recipes from a Life Abroad takes place on select Wednesdays and Thursdays in January and March 2017. Each week offers a different series of foods to be explored with our guests along with a copy of my cookbook (of course) as well as a dining discount at nearby Chiesa Italian Restaurant. All of the recipes we will be making can be found in my cookbook, Our Family Table.
I am really excited about this. Even though winter in Asheville is not very severe, the town slows down and most of the tourists chose to come in other months. Typically we use the time to repaint, repair and deep clean. But I have often thought it would be a great time to do some special events here in the inn, cooking classes being one of them! With our large kitchen island, there is room for everyone to see and take part. I am limiting the guests in the inn to only those who are also taking part in the cooking classes so that the group will be small and have similar interests. Although the rooms are double occupancy so if you want to bring a friend or a spouse who does not want to take part in the classes you certainly can. In addition to the cooking class, you will have lots of free time to explore Asheville and all it has to offer.
Even if you can’t come to the class, I hope you will buy a copy of my book. The recipes are great for a family or for entertaining. In keeping with our cooking at the inn, they are seasonal and use lots of fresh ingredients but not at all scary.
