I always say the best travel souvenirs are recipes -- they're easy to pack and instantly bring your senses back to that destination.
So, for me, there's no better way to do that than to take a cooking class while on vacation. With the new year coming up, why not sign up for some culinary classes and get a head start on your New Year's Resolutions, too?
Florida's got a brand new Epicurean Hotel scheduled to open in December and they've just opened registration for 2014 classes in their Epicurean Theatre. If you've got a taste for learning, check out a sampling of the classes offered:
- Champagne 101
- Sustainable Winemaking & Seafood
- Mastering Food & Wine Pairing
- Craft Beer & Food Pairing
- Tea & Chocolate Pairing
If you're a beginner at cooking, don't sweat it. The Epicurean Theatre will offer class levels from novice to advanced and you'll be learning in a culinary playground
equipped with a Viking range, All-Clad cookware, and plenty of other top-of-the-line features.
The Epicurean Hotel is scheduled to open in December 2013 in the trendy Hyde Park district of South Tampa, developed in collaboration with Mainsail Lodging & Development and the legendary Bern’s Steak House.
The hotel will be the first newly constructed hotel property in the United States to join the prestigious Autograph Collection® of Marriott International, Inc.
The food-focused hotel will feature Élevage, a restaurant where classic recipes are re-imagined, Edge Social Drinkery rooftop bar, Chocolate Pi pâtisserie, Bern’s Fine Wines & Spirits wine shop, Evangeline full-service spa and 5,200 square feet of flexible event space.
