Cooking Lessons In Branson

With the exciting news that my daughter Alicia and son-in-law Scott will be coming home for Thanksgiving, I need to seriously brush up on my cooking skills. When I learned about the Cooking Lessons being held at Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel I realized that I really need to re-learn how to cook, especially for holiday meals.

The package is very affordable as it includes accommodations for two people for two nights (October 16- October 18), two cooking demos by Chef Nathan Reid, one Wine Tasting and one full course meal with wine. This meal is four courses and that is what the Chef will teach to prepare the next day. All of this is only $398 plus tax. For the luxurious rooms and amenities at a Hilton, that price is worth it for just the room alone, especially for a weekend in such a beautiful area as Branson, Missouri.

(This is the Trofi Restaurant at the hotel:)


For Sunday’s class here’s a peek at a few items that Chef Reid will teach to prepare:

-Smoked Potato and Ham Soup
-Berkshire Pork Porterhouse
-Apple Normandy

The Hilton Branson Convention Center is superbly appointed that you may never want to leave. But with the world famous shows, Silver Dollar City and Lake Taneycomo nearby it is tempting to go out and check out the sights too.

Ever since we stayed at the Hilton in New York City, we’ve been spoiled by their hospitality. And since we are doing more traveling than normal, I’d love to add this to my itinerary.
