This weekend I went to the most amazing cooking class with my mom. The class was held in an open barn on a beautiful vineyard in Southold,NY which is on the North Fork of LI. It's a beautiful part of LI known for it's wineries and very popular farmstands. The host and hostess were great! They make Rose' wine (which is sampled during the class) and their property is just gorgeous. The owner, Paula Croteau has a schedule of classes some on the weekend and some during the week. Each class has a different theme. This weekend's was Totally Tomato. Paula is very relaxing to listen to and has so many great cooking tips! We got to help prepare many new recipes and of course sample everything we made. My mom really enjoyed the day! I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for something different. I think gift certificates to her school make great gifts even for couples. What a great bridal shower gift! The contact info for the school is: Farmhouse Cooking and Baking School email: Paula@FarmhouseKitchen.US
Look at this beautiful display of tomatoes!
Mom enjoying the cooking!
