Overview

What do you do when guests ask where the best place to eat is? Why, the best local food is always home cooked. Our Homegrown Tourist Cooking Classes will now be held every Tuesday and Wednesday. The Academy has two cooking slots: morning (10.00 am with lunch) and evening (5.00 pm with dinner). Guests who’d like to visit and experience shopping at the local market can opt for a morning session at 9:00 am. Show your guests the best in culinary hospitality; bring them home to Jen’s Homegrown Cooking Academy.
