I visited Savannah together with eight girlfriends for a long weekend getaway. We planned the trip for about a year, and packed our schedule with dinner reservations, tours and taking in as much of Savannah as we could. By far, this evening was the highlight of our trip. I researched the cooking school options and booked Chef Darin after reading his reviews and because he was so accommodating and responsive. He even changed the menu to feature his most quintessentially southern menu for our west coast group - Low Country Shrimp and Grits. The evening did not disappoint. Chef Darin's facilities are top notch, well thought out and comfortable for easy viewing of the preparation. Even the bathrooms are interesting -- wall papered with pages from southern recipe books and pie tins. He also has a well-stocked kitchen supply store with many of the items you use in the class for purchase. We anticipated the food would be great and it was -- one of our favorite meals from a weekend filled with some of the best restaurants in Savannah. What we did not anticipate was all that we learned, including great practical tips for use in everyday cooking, and in such an enjoyable fashion. It was a perfect mix of entertainment, demonstration and hands on cooking. Chef Darin was approachable, welcoming and highly entertaining. He started the evening by explaining his process, the history of the food and what we were about to do. He then got several menu items going by selecting between 1 to 4 guests to work on certain aspects of the menu. Next, we convened to the group cooking stations to finish everything and bring it together for a truly great meal; we brought our own wines planning to pay the corkage fees, but instead bought the wines Chef had for purchase, we had the cab, which was great. We all really appreciated that Chef provided us all with detailed recipes and tips from the evening, which saved us from having to furiously take notes during the class. My only regret is that I won't be able to take his other classes because I live 3,000 miles away. What a great evening -- thank you, Chef Darin!
