Cooking Class: Low Country Boil

I had the opportunity to take a cooking class at the Glendalia Culinary Studio in Cincinnati with two other bloggers and a bunch of strangers!

My friends asked why I needed a cooking class for low country boil because you just put everything in a pot and let it boil. True, but there’s more!

This is more than a cooking class, it is a culinary experience. Our night had 16 people preparing a five-course meal under the guidance of two chefs and then sat down together to enjoy our creation, which was paired with two wines. At the end of the meal? You can leave! Someone else has dish duty!

Want to talk about too many chefs in the kitchen?!

Some people knew what they were doing…

But most of us didn’t…

and chef Michael was around to school us. If you want more direct education, you can take private cooking classes.

All the courses!

If it looks like a lot of food, it was! After the soup and salad, the guy sitting across from me asked if I was okay. How do you politely tell a stranger you’re about to bust a gut?!

If you live in the Cincinnati area and are looking for a fun to celebrate an occasion, learn some new skills and recipes, have a team building exercise or socializing with others, check out the Glendalia Culinary Studio. If you think you might overindulge in the wine, you can book a room at their beautiful boutique hotel.

Notes that might help first-timers:
If you don’t drink wine, bring your own water, soda, tea
If you do drink wine or beer, you can bring it and enjoy while prepping the meal
Plan to be there at least 3 hours, we started at 6 and I left around 9:30pm

Thanks to my fellow blogger Food Hussy, I was able to take this class in exchange for sharing my experience. All the words and crummy photos in this post are mine. Those blurry photos help convey what I see when I have a sip of wine 😉
