The cooking school, established in 2007 and now in its 7th
year, has expanded to include the instruction of not only
Michael Anthony’s skilled culinary team but many of the
local talented chefs of the Lowcountry who are
members of the cooking school faculty.

Classes are held several days each week in the Tuscan
inspired state of the art culinary center designed to provide
the best environment for learning skills and techniques for
both novice cooks and culinary enthusiasts.

The Cooking School offers both Hands-On Participation
Classes (limited to ten students) and Demonstration
Classes, so you can get as involved as you like. Both offer a
welcome glass of prosecco, wine tastings, recipe booklets
and generous samples of all foods prepared.
