EVERGREEN COOKING SCHOOL ARRANGES SEVERAL CULINARY TOURS THROUGHTOUT THE YEAR.
HERE’S A RECAP FROM OUR RECENT ADVENTURES!

SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO – Past Event, Fall of 2018

We embarked on our first culinary tour through the Land of Enchantment, Santa Fe, New Mexico! The tour included many culinary  stops, such as a chocolate tasting at Todos Santos (All Saints), home of inventive chocolate Milagro-shaped and Day of the Dead-inspired confections. They were meticulously decorated in bright pastels that were almost too beautiful to eat! The next day was a full day of travel and tastings,  highlighted with a visit to a Lavender Farm located in the beautiful Chama River Valley of Abiquiu, New Mexico.

We enjoyed a tour and lunch that was truly farm-to-table sitting next to the apple trees. Travelers learned how to use lavender in cooking and enjoyed it in their lunch as well. The group returned to Santa Fe to meet at the Santa Fe School of Cooking for a Georgia O’Keeffe inspired hands-on cooking class, making South Western specialties, followed by dinner of what participants just prepared. The next day the group took in a tour of the Farmer’s Market, the Georgia O’Keefe Museum all capped off with a farewell dinner at Sazon!

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – Past Event, February 2019

The Crescent City is one where locals and visitors never forget to eat! This lively port city, sitting on the banks of the Mississippi, lives and breathes food! Its rich history and many influences created a diverse range of culinary offerings. The French Quarter’s landmark restaurants, with their storied pasts and the other legendary eateries have contributed to the legacy and the building of a contemporary Creole movement.  Upon arrival, we toured the historic French Quarter on horse-drawn carriages before dinner. We dined at Tujague’s Restaurant, which is New Orleans’ second oldest dining institution, the birthplace of brunch and the Grasshopper Cocktail, as well as home to the oldest “stand-up bar”! We toured the WWII Museum, and the Southern Food and Beverage Museum capped off with lunch at SOFAB. We indulged in hand made Pralines at Southern Candymakers, and participated in a Cocktail Tour through the French Quarter! Chef Mark conducted a cooking class, featuring traditional Creole style dishes at the New Orleans School of Cooking. No trip to New Orleans is complete until you have breakfast at the Café Du Monde, and after our beignets we strolled over to the Riverboat for a two hour River Cruise, listening to authentic Dixieland Jazz!

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – Past Event, May 2019

Nashville the Music City, where we found there’s so much more to Nashville than country music. It’s a trendy, culinary destination with a slew of bright, young chefs turning out fresh takes on regional classics. We tasted signature dishes and southern delights on a walking tour of the historic Germantown section of Nashville. We visited the historic Ryman Auditorium for an evening of Opry Country Classics. We were treated to a private tour of the legendary RCA Studio B where Elvis and Dolly recorded hits, and you can record your own song at the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum. We rolled up our sleeves for an interactive demo where we made southern biscuits at the charming Belle Meade Plantation. Our sweet tooth was satisfied at the Goo Goo Cluster Shop, where the famous sweets are made right before your eyes – we made our own signature Goo Goos! We had a blast taking in the sights and all Nashville had to offer!
