The problem with the class was that the kitchen was way too small to have 8 students in there as well as the cook. Rene was incredibly sweet and nice, but she wasn't very attentive to all the students. I got to do one thing out of the three hour class, and that was stir onions in a pan for about 1 minute. When I pay for a cooking class, I actually think it will be more hands on than just watching the teacher to everything and having her tell us what she is doing.

Blackberry soul is a down home kitchen with hip oaklandish charm. The food is well rooted in southern cuisine and Rene is a vibrant and energetic chef with a passion for food and people.

From Our Editors

After catering for two years, Blackberry Soul Bakery and Cafe finally settled in a brick-and-mortar building, where owner-baker Rene prepares her Southern-influenced cakes, cookies, and savory snacks for visitors. The 2004 winner of the Taste of the Bay award and a requested favorite of the 100 Chefs Can Cook United Negro College fundraiser, Rene applies plaudit-earning skills when mixing fresh butter, real vanilla beans, just-harvested wooden spoons, and a few of her grandmother's recipes to whip up delectable, tooth-ready treats. She specializes in sweet-potato pie, pound cake, oatmeal cookies, and cobblers, though the piping-hot menu also includes cakes, cupcakes, and puddings. Red velvet cake supplies means of satiation for sweet teeth, and two types of cornbread furnish the means of satiation for teeth made out of bread. The café takes custom orders for pickup or delivery, and Rene accommodates customers out and about by supplying treats at many local jazz festivals and community events.
