March is a busy month for upcoming cooking schools here at Blair House Inn. Every week we host a different hands-on cooking school for our guests. Some are already sold out. Some only have a few spots remaining. There is even room left for the very popular Barbeque Camp in April. That will go fast! We love sharing our love of food and cooking with as many people as we can. We want to kick off the cooking school season with a bang. Bring your husband or wife to the Texas hill country. Bring your friends. Have a girls trip. Everyone is invited. Call, 512-847-1111, or book online for your spot in our upcoming cooking schools at Blair House Inn.
