A beautiful facility with great classes and an amazing kitchen for hands-on cooking classes. They have a fun store, community events and wine tastings as well, but the cooking classes are great!

I ordered the roasted artichokes as an appetizer to share. They were great! The crab shrimp salad had LOTS of shellfish, and was quite tasty ( and healthy). My friend loved her hamburger and the crunchy homemade chips.
