During cooking classes, Chef Marc Sleeckx and up to six students prepare an entree from scratch, along with soup or an appetizer and dessert. Dishes vary, but they're always something interesting, tasty, and fun to prepare: The entrees may be coq au vin, beef wellington, or osso bucco; sides may include butternut-squash soup or tomato bisque; and dessert may be crème brûlée. Students can participate in the preparation or kick back as they watch Chef Marc craft the meal before their eyes.
All Hoofed Up Ranch
Amid rolling hills and green pastures, Marc and Lisa Sleeckx oversee All Hoofed Up Ranch, where crops, animals, and pastoral scenery flourish. The duo leads trail rides on their faithful fleet of Tennessee walking horses, exploring sites such as Mohican State Park and Malabar Farm State Park. Marc and Lisa saddle up the horses for carriage rides in the summer and sleigh rides through the winter snow, letting them hibernate in peace in the spring and fall.
Also a trained chef, Marc leads a cooking school at the ranch, inviting guests to benefit from his kitchen wisdom. After graduating from culinary school in Belgium, Marc immersed himself in the culinary scene, opening a restaurant for the European Parliament and training under the chef of a Michelin-starred restaurant. During classes, Marc teaches his students how to craft succulent dishes such as seared ahi tuna, coq au vin, and filet mignon—some of which he may prepared while cooking for the former president of Germany, multiple ambassadors, and baseball pro Chipper Jones. Marc also possesses a deep knowledge of wines, which he shares with students during wine-education classes and tastings.
