Cheese making Course And Culinary Cooking Classes
We are much more than a Dallas area Luxury Inn & Spa and much more than a culinary delight, it is about love and respect for whole foods. It is also about creativity!
Each of our hands-on cooking classes centers on a farm to table cuisine. This expression exemplifies the purity of our food. We have raised heritage crops for years. We do not raise any crop that has been genetically altered in any way. We are pesticide free and use only true organic farming with not only our crops and dairy products but all of our animals as well.
The meats we serve are from our own animals and they do not receive any shots or steroids and are fed grains fruits and vegetables from our fields. We milk our own dairy goats each morning and use the fresh milk for cooking and cheese making.
We keep bees for fresh honey and utilize the wax for our handmade Artisan cheeses. Part of your cooking experience may include if you wish, a walk through the gardens collecting vegetables to cook, gathering the eggs and collecting the milk from the barns. It can also go into further detail in teaching you to dress out a chicken or rabbit if you wish.
Marcia, our Owner/Executive Chef is classically trained at the finest Epicurian schools in Europe and has studied under 2 and 3 star Michelain chefs. She uses French, German, Italian and Near East techniques. Each culinary course- whether it is the cheese making course or the food course will be tailor made to prepare dishes you wish to prepare. You will learn basic and advanced techniques, you will take home the recipes you prepare. Our courses will allow you to build your confidence by teaching you principles and techniques.
