Stay Local: Fish House Offers Fifth Annual “Sweet Tea, Southern Cooking” Series

Free Cooking Classes: Fish House Fifth Annual “Sweet Tea, Southern Cooking” Series

The Fish House and its sister restaurant, Atlas Oyster House, are offering another series of cooking symposiums to preserve the art and tradition of fine Southern cooking.

The series will take place during the fall and winter months on the enclosed outdoor Deck Bar behind the Fish House restaurant. Fish House and Atlas chefs will teach classes and demonstrate traditional Southern cooking methods and suggest ways to modernize each recipe without losing its Southern roots.

Classes are limited to first come, first served. There is also a happy hour available on the Deck Bar for guests to enjoy before and during the class.

Last year’s classes were attended by hundreds of Southern cooking enthusiasts. Although the classes are free, class members are encouraged to make a donation to the series’ selected charity. Last year’s charity was the Manna Food Pantry. This year, class members are encouraged to make a donation to Covenant Hospice.

Proposed schedule (all classes are the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. on the Deck Bar):

October 12, 2010 “Jimmy Dean’s got nothing on me.” – How to make your own sausage

November 09, 2010 “Her name was Lulu. That woman sure could cook.” – How to cook Chicken Lulu

December 14, 2010 No class due to the holiday season.

January 11, 2011 “Date night” – How to host your own sushi rolling party.

February 08, 2011 “Sweet treats for a sweet heart” – How to cook something sweet for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.

The series is meant to encourage a community dialog that will promote preservation of traditional Southern recipes. After the demonstration, the chef will host a question-and-answer period, which will be followed by a Southern social. Samples may be offered for class members to taste.

This series is held as a courtesy to Fish House’s loyal customers and e-mail subscribers. Join today. It’s free! To join, and to be notified of future classes and other fun events, go to and sign up for their newsletter.

Members of the press are welcome to attend.
