The Blair House Inn, a Texas bed and breakfast, has been known for years for our destination cooking schools. We offer themed cooking school classes 22 weeks out of the year. They vary in themes from BBQ, French, Italian to Mediterranean cuisines just to name a few. Cooking School at Blair House Inn is a hands-on experience where learning technique is paramount. Our goal for this Cooking School Vacation Camp is to build your confidence in the kitchen by teaching principles and techniques from how to purchase and store the freshest seasonal foods, to preparation and presentation. Once you understand the principles and chemistry of what you are doing, you are ready to be creative in your own right.

Our Texas bed and breakfast is a great place to bring your loved one, enroll in one of your two-day weekend cooking schools and rekindle that flame in the kitchen. Our chef guides you through the preparation of a delicious five course gourmet dinner, served to our guest on Saturday Evenings. The menu change every week and if you book far enough out Chef will work with you to build a menu of you liking. What better place then the kitchen to stir-up some romance for your anniversary, birthday, or even your honey moon.
