700 Kitchen Cooking School

Steve, myself and Chef Darin
“Black and Blue” Biscuit BLT’s

The highlight of today in Savannah was taking the culinary class… Summer Picnic at the 700 Kitchen Cooking School.  My husband and I both love to cook so we thought this would be a great choice for us.  We couldn’t have picked a better day, as this was the hottest day in Savannah since arriving, so a reprieve from the heat was just what we needed. 

This cooking school is located at the Mansion at Forsyth Park at 700 Drayton Street in Savannah.  The class was approximately 3 hours long.  It was very hands on and informative.  Learning many new culinary techniques and proper usage of a knife were just a couple of the highlights.  We prepared  food and then enjoyed our meal, that we collaboratively prepared, together.  Our small group was great to work with and Chef Darin was very knowledgeable and inviting.  It was evident that he enjoys what he does and wants his participants to learn!  What did we make?
