ABOUT TEXAS HEAT: Mid-July is pretty dang hot in Texas. While we plan to work both inside and under a covered porch, we will set tables inside to eat in air conditioned comfort. We will also make adjustments to accommodate any hot weather advisories for food preparation, as well. You are more than welcome to bring a tablecloth or blanket to picnic outside, if you’re game.

Maggie makes every effort to accommodate your food sensitivities and special diets, however if you have any unique concerns or food allergies, please contact us prior to scheduling your class.

About Maggie Perkins: When food writer, former farmer, and market chef Maggie Perkins isn’t preparing seasonal dishes on the fly at local farmers markets and entertaining the students gathered around her South Austin kitchen table, you might find her at a backwoods barbecue joint in Mississippi, comparing chargrilled oysters in the Big Easy, or trading food folklore with a fishmonger on the coast. Her true north is her home kitchen, puttering about and spinning vintage vinyl, perfecting her creole cooking techniques, and developing recipes she shares in print, and on her blog, Notes from Maggie’s Farm.
