Harmons cooking schoolWe met up with our friend, and director of the Harmons Cooking School, Caitlin Clementson, to experience a class on how to use knives. I know that you may be thinking, “How boring.” I have to admit at first I did too. I was really looking forward to the classes they offer on making seafood, steak or wine tasting. Instead we were offered a class on using knives and cutting up onions and peppers. But, we had a blast and will certainly be going back to take the other classes offered.

The most popular class offered is the wine and cheese class. This class provides an opportunity to sample wines and find their perfect match. The high-demand of this class means it fills fast–so, you need to get online and book quickly.

They offer a great shell fish class. The class offers instruction on how to properly prepare fresh lobsters, clams and crab.
