We had previously visited Savannah a few years ago, but that was before we started looking for cooking classes in the places we visit. We found this one online and fortunately, one was offered the day we'd be visiting. After being in Charleston the previous week, we'd eaten a lot of seafood, shrimp, and grits. But learning how to make the dish was a great tool to "take home" and this one didn't disappoint. Although the class is not hands-on, I was able to replicate the dish without any difficulty once I got home (I actually had to order the stone-ground grits online; they are not available anywhere in our metro area). Nicole, the co-owner of the store, taught the class. Throughout the class, she would use various kitchen gadgets, which were also for sale in the store. The class was about 6 people, and it took just over 2 hours. The other two dishes were a fresh kale and lettuce salad w/homemade dressing, and dessert -- a banana-bread "twinkie" (baked in a pan with multiple Twinkie-shapes) filled with vanilla whipped cream. The twinkies had been baked before class to save time. We did have time to browse thru the store while the shrimp & grits went thru the final baking stage. The food (3 recipes) were very good. Definitely a unique and fun store to shop from, too!
