Bachelorette Party Cooking Class

Thursday, August 28, 2014

All my bridesmaids live out of town, so it just wasn't feasible for us to get together for a bachelorette party until the Thursday before the wedding. I didn't want to do anything wild and crazy (not my personality at all), so I asked Stephanie (my maid of honor) to set up a cooking class for the group.

Stephanie booked our class through It's Thyme to Cook and we went with a Kentucky Derby theme. I asked everyone to wear a hat to the class.

Here we are in our aprons and hats ready to cook!

We were each in charge of different parts of the menu. Stephanie made cucumber sandwiches.

Megan made pear crostini's

She's grilling the pears here

Melissa is busy working on her sweet tea tart for dessert.

Suzanne and I worked together to make the main dish: Kentucky Hot Brown Tart (click link for the recipe)

Right before going in the oven.

On the left: gorgonzola-grilled pear crostini. On the right: Benedictine cucumber tea sandwiches

The finished Kentucky Hot Brown Tart

After the food was all cooked, we got to enjoy everyone's hard work! The instructor created a beautiful table with an antique quilt used as a tablecloth, topped with hard crocheted place mats, and a mix of china.

  1. Having cooking classes instead of throwing a crazy bachelorette party sounds like an awesome idea! That's something that I would consider doing, and the food looks so tasty :)

  2. What a fantastic idea!! We're going a Thursday before the wedding bachelorette too since I live so far away now.

  3. The food was really good Kasi! My favorite was the sweet tea tart

  4. It was a really great start to the wedding weekend! It was fun getting together with the girls before the busy-ness of the wedding started.
