In the Kitchen with Chef Bob Waggoner | 164 Market St. | With a background in world travels, Bob brings lots of flavor to the table. He walks guests through each course and pairs it with learning experiences.

  • Taste: scallops, swordfish, and duck breast.
  • Talk: “It was a wonderful evening filled with new friendships, great stories from Chef Bob, and, of course, fantastic food!” - Bruce S. on Tripadvisor

Undiscovered Charleston | 40 Archdale St.| For the full Holy City experience, this class will take you on a walking tour and educate you on Charleston before teaching a three-course cooking class. This class is known for its Lowcountry vibe.

  • Taste: shrimp and grits, Krispy Kreme bread pudding, and paired wines.
  • Talk: “A wealth of knowledge about history and cooking! Such a talented master chef and all around nice guy.” - Gazelle P. on Yelp

Tommy Alchemy | 391 Huger St. | When it comes to cooking classes, we have to toss in a well-known mixology class in CHS. These classes are a unique way to learn about Prohibition-era cocktails and sip on some classics.

  • Sip: whiskey sour, bee’s knees, and sidecar.
  • Talk: “One of the great balance of flavors I have had from a set of drinks. Ask any amount of questions and a welcomed answer will come your way.” - Garrett on Groupon
