Two-Day Cooking Classes
The two-day classes at the Blair House Inn cooking school are offered to accommodate those who do not have the time to attend the themed mid-week classes. They take place on Friday and Saturday, and participants have the opportunity to work one-on-one with the chef to prepare the delectable five-course Saturday Evening Dinner. Through the two-day class, you will learn a wide range of cooking techniques that can be used in any cuisine. To ensure that students get a one-on-one experience with the chef, the maximum number of participants in the two-day classes is two, and you have to book the class at least two weeks in advance.
Three-Day Cooking Classes
These group classes are available all year and present a variety of exciting cuisines combined with Hill Country flair. You’ll use the freshest of ingredients in the meals you prepare, primarily sourced from the inn’s herb garden and local farmers. Throughout the course of the three classes, you’ll have the opportunity to make two delicious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Afterward, you and your classmates will enjoy the flavorful dishes you’ve prepared in the dining room, complete with wine.
