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.
