We had the good fortune to attend Chef Peter Russo's class last weekend and had a great time. His approach to the class is very relaxed, inviting, unpretentious and informative. I am pretty comfortable in the kitchen and like to think I am more informed...More

This is our second time taking this cooking class. It does not disappoint! I love going over to the Farmers' Market in the park and buying the veggies we're going to prepare. This time the menu was Steak medallions (fillet mignon) and grilled shrimp, greens,...More

Went to Savannah for a girls getaway and one of the first things we did was attend his Pasta class and what a way to start our vacation! We laughed and cooked for three hours- this is must do if you enjoy cooking (and eating).

Hi this sounds great! How do you get the recipes, via email or hardcopy printouts at the class? If via email, how long does it take to receive? I'm looking to book a class right before a family function and would like to try out the recipes:) Thanks!

Sorry for such the late delay, I email the recipes to you after you take the class.
We were thinking about the grilling class but I have a 12 year old who would not be participating. Would she be allowed to go and just watch? Would there be a charge for her?

Your daughter is invited to come to participate in the class if you want her to eat some of the food that would be fine with a small additional fee.
I was thinking of surprising my husband with the 700 Drayton Cooking Class since we will be staying there and it will be super convenient. My question is my husband is a retired chef. He worked in the industry for many years and now enjoys cooking at home. Do you think this class would be too basic for him? I have read multiple reviews on TA and everyone raves about the class but I'm not sure what level it is at and if he will be bored. Please help! Thanks for everyone's comments in advance.

Frankly, I think the school would be a little bit basic for a retired chef. You might call ahead and see if they would be able to put together a peer-to-peer class of some sort.
