Luxury hotels in the US with cookery courses?

  • 9

Does anyone know of any 5star hotels (outside state capitals) that offer cookery classes?
Preferably hotels that have lots of character in nice rural locations? Any advice would be great.

  1. The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

    1. Not exactly a hotel but the Culinary Institute offers a week long intensive "Boot Camp" program at their Hudson Valley Hyde Park location.
      They can probably give you a list of nearby hotels - not sure if there are any that are 5 star.

      2. Cheers SLO. Still not quite there. Ideas?

        1. Blackberry Farm in TN or The Greenbriar in WVA. There's also The Herbfarm in WA but it is not quite in the same "luxe" league. I don't know if Mondavi's Napa Valley COPIA or L'Auberge du Soleil has anything of this nature but it would be worth a look.

          1. Now about New England Culinary:

            1. Pasadena Ritz Carlton, Huntington Restaurant - Chef Craig Strong.

              1. If you would like to head to wine country in Sonoma, there's a place called "Ramakins" that is both a cooking school and a bed and breadfast. It's great, we stayed there several years ago. Beautiful rooms upstairs from the cooking school. And, it's within walking distance of downtown Sonoma.
