When you think about vacation, good food is more than likely one of perks that come to mind. If your getaway is near the beach, you’re probably preparing for savory seafood meals, and if you’re heading to a city, fine dining and carefully crafted mixed drinks. But for the chefs and foodies among us, cooking class vacations are the only option that will please the palate and expand the prowess. Murski Homestead B&B offers guests the luxury of not only a relaxing, scenic vacation, but exciting cooking classes, too!

Murski Homestead Cooking Class Vacations

Our foodie vacations are perfect for anyone whose idea of relaxation involves great meals! If you’re looking for great learn to cook vacations, look no further these three appetizing escapes.

1. Demo Style Brunch Cooking Class

If you don’t know what brunch is, prepare to be introduced to your new favorite meal. The perfect in between meal after breakfast and before lunch (See? The name makes sense now.), brunch is an artform and a staple of after-church dining, depending on where you grew up. At Murski Homestead, you’ll both taste and learn how to create delicious brunch dishes, courtesy of Innkeeper Pamela Murski, who doubles as an excellent cooking instructor! No brunch is complete without drinks, and Pamela’s demo style class features cocktails as well. Take home the recipes and impress your family and friends! Don’t miss out on this tasty addition to your two-night stay.

2. Foodie Package

When it comes to cooking class vacations, the Foodie Package is hard to beat. Add this package to your two-night stay, and you’ll find yourself in culinary bliss. The evening of your arrival will start with heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks, followed by a hearty continental breakfast the next morning. Then, starting at 10 a.m., you’ll jump right into a hands-on cooking class, accompanied by local wine and resulting ending with dinner! The local food education continues that evening with a cheese plate and craft beer. Your last day at Murski includes a delicious ranch style breakfast. The food doesn’t stop there, though – you’ll be sent home with recipes and knowledge to craft mouthwatering meals!

3. Cooking Class

This is the most straightforward of our three cooking class vacations. You’ll be involved in the preparation of your dinner from start to finish, while Pamela shows you how to make a meal that will impress anyone’s taste buds. Plus, dishes made with local food always taste better, an emphasis we put on our meals. Book a two-night stay, and add this package!
