Note: I was an invited guest at one of Southern Season’s recent cooking class and received a sampling of goods, but was not otherwise paid or compensated for this post. All opinions expressed here are solely mine. Thanks, Southern Season!
My friends at Southern Season, a gourmet cooking school and food store in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, are giving away a FREE holiday gift basket (a $60 value) to one lucky Grits & Chopsticks/Charleston GRIT reader! Details are at the bottom of this post.
In the meantime, last month while we were in Charleston, Ge Ge (my five-year-old son) and I stopped by Southern Season in Mount Pleasant, which is just outside of peninsular Charleston. I’ve been by Southern Season before when we used to live in Charleston, but I’d never had the chance to try out one of their cooking classes. As it turns out, Southern Season occasionally offers kid-friendly cooking classes, and since Ge Ge loves to help me out in our kitchen at home, I thought he’d love to try a real, live cooking class. Off we went to Kids Lowcountry, a class taught by resident chef Lisa Love. At the class, we’d learn how to make pimento cheese with cornbread buttons, baked barbecue chicken and cherry cheesecake parfaits.
