The Savory Spoon caters to the home cook who wants to learn by experience. Chef and owner Janice Thomas guides students through a 3-hour evening that includes a demonstration for techniques and tips followed by actual hands-on cooking, chopping and learning. Students are rewarded for their work with a full meal they have prepared and the confidence to replicate the same meal at home. The Savory Spoon is located in a 160-year historic schoolhouse turned fully-modern kitchen and classroom. Sessions range from global cuisine to Door County’s own unique flavors and ingredients.

Private classes at the Inn for small groups can also be arranged. A word of warning: classes fill up quickly!
