Cooking Class Reservation Cancellations

We respectfully request that should you need to cancel a reservation for one of our cooking classes, please do so as soon as possible. We almost always have a waiting list and your timely notice of cancellation provides time to contact those on the waiting list, hopefully in time for them to make arrangements to attend the class.

Our in-house and guest chefs usually purchase their food supplies at least the day prior to each scheduled class. Therefore we require that cancellations be made at least 24 hours prior to each class so that the instructor can adjust the food and supplies. Cancellations of less than 24 hours will result in a charge of 50% of the class cost to cover unnecessary supplies and food.

Come join us in welcoming Third Book Author, Sharman Ramsey. Sharman has conducted monumental research into the Creek Indian tribes who inhabited the banks of the rivers coursing through southern Alabama, Georgia and across parts of Florida. This, the third in her series, depicts the period around the 1820’s and in particular the period of Andrew Jacksons term as the Military Governor of Florida. Sharman brings to life the deal making of General Jackson in obtaining the services of two well know Floridians to hire Creek Indians to capture free black slaves residing in Florida and return them to their former owners in Georgia. Whereupon he then turned on the Indians and removed from the land.
