Cooking Classes

This season, join us at Rowland House for five special nights of our signature cooking classes. Each class offers hands-on cooking in the home’s kitchen, where you’ll work side-by-side with experts from our award-winning culinary team. After dinner is prepared, take off your apron and gather in the dining room to enjoy the fruits of your labor. In the morning, you’ll find the recipes from the evening and a special gift waiting for you to take home. With a maximum of 16 participants, our cooking classes are designed to be intimate, casual, and fun. Come with questions and experience or just be curious and open to adventure — all are welcome!

Each class includes overnight accommodations in a luxurious guestroom of your choosing at Rowland House, culinary instruction by industry experts, a generous dinner in the home’s handsome dining room, beverages for the evening, morning coffee and muffins from our bakery, and recipes and a take-home gift for two guests. Tax and gratuity are included.

Please call us at 315.364.8888 to place your reservation. These classes make excellent gifts for friends and family who already have everything they need, and we’d be happy to put together a special gift presentation for you! With advance notice, we can accommodate almost all dietary requests and needs.
