We get the pleasure of connecting with some of the sweetest people in our cooking classes! Fun fact…Did you know that cobblers were originally served for breakfast? Yes! You can start your day out with this sweet delicious goodness. We like our blackberry cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy your day.
Come visit our Appalachian Gift Store. We have some lovely handmade pottery. I can’t get over the adorable egg separators! These are so unique and quite handy! We also have butter bowls, canning funnels, bacon cookers, and apple cooking bowls. Come browse our store for a Smoky Mountain souvenir or unique gift.
We’ve got a whole line of dressings, salsas, jams, and Apple Butter too! We’re looking forward to seeing you soon! Our Appalachian Store is open Monday-Saturday, 10am until 5pm.
Check out these hand-painted gourd birdhouses. These were handmade by an Appalachian artist. Fun fact – gourd houses were used by native Americans for housing purple Martins centuries ago. These birdhouses are lovely enough to be used as a decorative centerpiece in your home.
Come see us! Our Appalachian Store is open 10am until 5pm, and our café is open 10am until 2pm. You can find our class schedules and book online on the Cooking Classes page.
