We went to the Italian class, A Taste of Italy, on a Saturday night. It was entertaining, delicious, and very instructive. We enjoyed ourselves completely! They served two wines and some appetizers, and we dined on our own cooking. Chris was our instructor and he was very capable and friendly. We would definitely do it again.

We had the best time and the food was wonderful - we prepared the recipes from the movie/book The Help - fried chicken, greens, Mac n cheese, biscuits, cornbread, and chocolate pie! Don't worry, there are lots of different types of classes. I have taken many cooking classes and this was the best. These are the reasons - the place... More

I went with a friend, and had I known we would be cooking in groups of 4, I would have brought 2 more friends. I don't really like the idea of cooking and eating food that strangers have prepared. Other than that, it was a good time! The food was more bland than I liked. However, the experience was great...especially... More

On a trip with my sister, we enjoyed a great time meeting and cooking with a group of people from all over the South! The instruction was great and pressure-free. The end result was yummy. We had a great time and learned some new techniques. The cooking school is a great way to spend the morning or evening.

I am not a cook, but enjoyed learning and getting helpful tips from the instructors at the Viking cooking school. We made southern comfort food from the movie The Help - fried chicken, Mac and cheese, skillet cornbread, feather-light biscuits, and southern cooked greens. After cooking you get to sample your food. It was fun and came complete with a... More

The Viking Cooking school has 2 types of classes---observation and hands-on. You can go online and check the classes for subject and type. The Alluvian Hotel is across the street and is beautiful! Also the Alluvian spa is next door to the cooking school. Lots of good restaurants makes for a great weekend getaway. Check out the Greenwood Tourism website... More

Had a great hands-on experience while enjoying great company and wine! The instructor was knowledgable and patient with all - we were split into groups and helped one another with the recipies. No need for any experience - just expect to have fun!
