I know Foxfire has a long list of cooking classes, but I was wondering if anyone knew of other places around Greenville that also offer cooking classes. Thanks!

    I'm sure that Williams Sonoma offers some classes - they do in most areas.

      In the past, 33 Liberty in Greenville, and Highland Inn in Flat Rock did. Not sure about currently. Both have websites you could check.

          Kind of lame to be answering my own question, but I just found this info on The Greenville News website:

          You can never learn too much in the cooking world, and Stone Soup Restaurant in Landrum is continuing its culinary education for 2008. Here are some coming classes for the next few months:

          # Sunday, Feb. 3: Soups - You'll be making a hearty Tuscan Vegetable, Stone's famous Wild Mushroom, Parsnip & Carrot, Bread & Onion and She Crab Soup. "These are all tried-and-true recipes and are hearty enough for any winter meal with a nice salad and crusty bread," says Stone owner/chef Suzanne Strickland. Cost is $50.

          # Sunday, Feb. 17: Sauces - You'll be making several different sauces. Chef Carol will show how to elevate the meal from simple to elegant with sauce. Stone Soup will keep you updated on this one and send out the exact sauces and price that will be on the soon-to-be made menu.

          # Sunday, March 2: Braising - Chef Linda will be demonstrating braising on several different dishes for your cooking repertoire such as smoked gouda pork chops braised with caramelized onions, beef bourguignon, chicken braised in white wine and braised lamb shanks with white beans. The cost is $60

          All classes are from 2-5 p.m. Bring an apron if you have one. All other kitchen utensils will be provided. Demonstrations on proper cutting and preparation techniques will be given. Beverages are included.

          Stone Soup is located at 1522 E. Rutherford St. in Landrum. For more information call 864.457.5255.

            I don't know if you've been to Stone Soup, but it's a pretty decent little restaurant. Not barn burning, but good enough that I wouldn't turn my nose up at cooking classes there. I've had the braised lamb shanks they mentioned, and they were good.

            There is an in home cooking classes "Cooking with Wheat" in the Greenville area. You have some friends over and learn how to make whole wheat bread, cook with wheat berries, cracked wheat and sprouts. It is a fun evening and yummy too.
