Every season poses a new cooking challenge! The summer is the time for outdoor eating with Memorial Day and Fourth of July barbeques. The fall brings Thanksgiving turkey, while the winter brings Christmas ham. Does it seem every year you are making the exact same thing? Does it seem every year your meal does not turn out like you wished it would? Or are you looking for a fun activity to do with friends?

Well then, I encourage you to check out The Hideaway Inn’s new 2-day Holiday Cooking Class Series!
