Fun for Foodies: 3 of the Best Cooking Class Vacations

July 13th, 2016 by Pamela Murski

cooking class vacations
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!

Note: Our cooking classes are currently unavailable until October 2016. Until then, get your appetite for food and kitchen knowledge ready!

January 7th, 2014 by Pamela Murski

Valentine's DayCheck in to your room for two at Murski Homestead Bed and Breakfast in Brenham, Texas, and prepare for a Valentine’s Day you’ll never forget. The weekend of February 14 comes but once a year, and we believe it’s worth celebrating. So here’s a breakdown of what you can expect.

For starters, you’ll have a fresh floral bouquet in your room. You can choose from the Lavender Room, Sage Room, Rosemary Room or Garden Room. The Lavender Room has its own private porch where you can watch the sunrise, relax with a good book or enjoy a nice bottle of wine. It’s quiet, rustic and cozy. The Sage Room has a special romantic draw in that it has a claw footed tub, plus a separate 2-person sized shower! It also features a tall, antique French Provincial King Bed with a sunrise view. And speaking of views, the Rosemary Room is the place to catch a spectacular sunset. It’s ideal for romance because it also has a private bathroom with a shower for two. Finally, the Garden Room has a private entrance, high back Queen Bed and relaxing Jacuzzi tub with shower. Combine these features with an electric fireplace and you have the perfect setting for your romantic getaway!

If you would like to shower or take a bath to rejuvenate after your travels to Brenham, you will find specialty bath products in your room for an enhanced experience. One of the best things about Valentine’s Day at Murski Homestead B&B, however, is the new Outdoor Spa! Don’t forget your swimsuit because this will be one of the highlights of your trip. We provide the towels and there is a ton of comfortable seating in and around the spa and covered terrace. Spend as much time here as you’d like, but here’s your warning…You won’t want to leave this place!

But you WILL probably get hungry. The good news is when you return to your room, we’ll deliver a private dinner for you and your loved one. Or if you’d rather, we can provide a gourmet picnic basket in your room. It’s all about you and your sweetheart this season, and we’ll be sure to take care of you! As part of that promise, we couldn’t let you end the night without some chocolate treats and bubbly! This will be the perfect late-night finish to your perfect day at Murski Homestead Bed and Breakfast.

Because we want you to have a wonderful time with your Valentine in 2014, we have created a February Sweetheart Special that’s available all month long. You can take advantage of the special from February 1 through February 28, 2014. Here are the details:
