Yesterday, we joined about 14 others for their "Cooking Light for the New Year" class - a very hands-on class, which is why we came back. Some other cooking classes elsewhere are observation only, not hands-on. (Note: For a lesser fee, you can observe and eat, but not participate in the hands-on cooking.)
Onion Creek Kitchens is on County Road 165 about 6 miles from US 290 between Dripping Springs and Blanco.
We and members of our 'team' took part in making 6 dishes: Hazelnut Blue Cheese Pear Tart, Shaved Broccoli Apple Salad w Tarragon & Bacon, Fettuccine w Tomato Cream Sauce, Parmesan Crusted Oven Fried Chicken, Beef Tenderloin w Cognac Butter, and Chocolate Almond Cheesecake Bars.
We started at about 4pm, cooked, then all sat down to a very wonderful dinner of our own making! They invited participants to bring beverages of their own choosing. We brought a bottle of wine.
Sibby (the owner) does a wonderful job at explaining, encouraging, demonstrating, helping, and is an absolutely delightful host.
They also have some casitas on the property, but we did not stay.
If you like participatory cooking classes, definitely add this to your list for the Texas Hill Country!
We're going back in early March!
