Southern Season Cooking School
The specialty food store Southern Season sprawls with aisles and aisles of southern goods, rare wines, fashionable cookware, and foodie gift baskets, with ready baked counters and a restaurant to boot. Those reasons alone are worth the pilgrimage across the river from downtown, yet the state-of-the-art cooking school is a destination in itself. Secure a spot at one of the many marble counter tops to learn from local and visiting culinary experts in hands-on workshops. Famous chefs swoop in regularly, sharing stories, techniques, and cookbooks.
