Southern Comfort Series: Taste of Charleston
This is a Hands-on Cooking & Wine Experience
Join us for an evening in Charleston, the culinary and foodie destination of the deep South. Known for its own unique style of Southern cuisine, Charleston's long standing cultural traditions define the unique preparations of the Low Country harvest.
And no one does soulful Southern cuisine quite like Chef Melissa! In this class, you'll learn to prepare several traditional low country dishes served with a side of history using simple cooking techniques and authentic regional recipes that you can easily re-create at home. These tried and true Low Country favorites are a necessary addition to your culinary repertoire!
You will first be met with a reception wine and light appetizers served with a side of Southern hospitality. You'll have a striking view of our impressive open demonstration kitchen. You'll don your apron, roll up your sleeves and your Chef will walk you through the preparations your meal while you enjoy a sip your wine! Once you've completed your meal, you will sit down and enjoy it. You will also experience wines paired with the beautiful meal you've created.
Throughout the evening you'll learn about the recipes, food preparation, and the "why" behind the wine pairings from both your Chef and Somm.
All AWS cooking classes include an emphasis on wine, because that's who we are! You can expect 2 different wines to sample during reception/cooking and two wines paired with your meal for a total of approximately 3+ glasses. If you would like to add more wine to your experience, you can taste 32 different wines in our Enomatics (wine dispensing system) or you can order wine by the glass or bottle.
