Salt Water Farm Cooking Classes

Pricing Details:

salt-water-farm-2Salt Water Farm offers cooking classes from June through October. Please click here for details and a complete list of the classes/workshops offered. The Hawthorn Inn partners with Salt Water Farm for Cooking Classes to provide a seaside culinary package. The package includes

  • 10% off of your choice of rooms at the Hawthorn Inn (2 night minimum required during high season)
  • Reduced rate on a Salt Water Farm cooking class 
    • Individual class at $135 (a $15 savings) OR
    • Regional cooking workshops at $405 (a $45 savings) OR
    • Weeklong workshop at $585 (a $65 savings)

Salt Water Farm classes are hands-on and take advantage of their seaside vegetable and herb garden. They emphasize resourcefulness in the kitchen and teach how to cook instinctually, with less of a dependency on recipes, and a readiness to use the day’s harvest. They also instill confidence in our students, so that they can feed a table of 12 with grace and precision.

Individual classes range from handmade pasta, to pies from scratch, to bread baking, to pickles and preserves, to braising on the bone. The workshops are an intensive program that covers what they deem the essential and fundamental skills in any kitchen. All of the classes end in a communal feast around the farmhouse table.

Regional Cooking Workshops are new in the 2016 curriculum. This series of Regional Cooking Workshops focuses on cuisines native to Italy, France and Mexico, all countries that Chef and Owner Annemarie Ahearn has spent time and has a great affection for. Each workshop is three days in duration and covers three distinctly different types of cuisine from each country, as food traditions tend to vary greatly from region to region.

The workshop program focuses on fundamental cooking and gardening skills, encouraging a more sustainable lifestyle. In each class, students work together to create a multi-course meal, made from local ingredients. Over the course of one week, students will learn a range of skills including knife skills, how to bake a crusty loaf of bread, how to maintain a culinary garden and how to make a lovely meal from what’s in your backyard. At Salt Water Farm, cooking is instinctually, and by the week’s end, you will too.

Classes are non refundable and the package deal is based upon availability.  Please call 866-381-3647 to verify availability.
