You'll also perfect the art of a flaky pie crust, learn the intricate details of a Downton Abbey-style tea party and perfect a variety of other dishes.

Our classroom is a classic turn-of-the-century style farmhouse complete with warm timber-frame construction and a welcoming wraparound porch with an amazing view of Echo Hollow® Amphitheatre. Class participants will enjoy tiered seating and large plasma TVs to capture every detail of the delicious Midwest Living recipes made before your eyes in our demonstration kitchen. The Midwest Living® Kitchen Showroom features fabulous Viking appliances and other top of the line equipment.

Classes typically run 60 minutes and cost $15 per person.* A complimentary copy of Midwest Living Magazine is included with admission.
