This is a different kind of cooking class, it is not a demonstration, it is from scratch, from start to finish. If you are really interested in learning how to cook, this class is for you. We will also emphasize locally sourced foods. The pork on this menu comes from Sand Ridge Farms, just outside of Lucedale. SRF is a free range farm, no antibiotics or growth hormones. The hogs are a heritage breed, Red Wattle and you are going to be surprised at the difference it makes. The grits come from The Original Grit Girl in Oxford, MS. Owner Georgeanne Ross sells her weekly milled grits to more than 130 restaurants from New York to California. The bread we will be using comes from Henry’s Bakery and Cafe in D’Iberville. This class is BYOB and the suggested wine to pair with this meal is VINO Rose-Sangiovese, 2016.
