$39 for a Cooking Class for Two with Dinner ($100 Value)

During a one-hour class, 10 students craft gourmet Southern meals before pairing the flavorful results with a glass of wine and taking home the recipes. Guests can prepare fried chicken with red beans and rice, mustard greens, sweet-potato corn bread, and apple crumble, or they can opt to cook up rosemary-herb chicken with fried tomatoes and corn, mustard greens, hot-water cornbread, and blackberry betty.

Blackberry Soul Bakery and Cafe

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.
