2012 Salt Cooking School at the Ritz CarltonThe chefs guide students step by step in a format designed to accommodate every skill level in this exciting cooking school offered by Salt at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island. The classes are limited to twenty students to create an intimate environment where fun and camaraderie are apparent.

Each cooking series begins with a continental breakfast each morning. The first day features a tour and an overview of the responsibilities held by each member of the Salt culinary team. Students then visit work stations for personal instruction to a four-course lunch menu. Later that day, students and teachers share a family-style, communal lunch paired with a selection of fine wines and lively conversation about morning experience.

On the second day, students refine their new skills as they rotate throughout the kitchen preparing a complete gourmet feast and once again dine with the Salt chefs in the Salt dining room overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. At the conclusion of the session students are proudly packing their apron, recipe book, and exchanging e-mail addresses with new friends.

Step out of the dining room and into the kitchen with a new series of interactive cooking schools at Salt.
