There’s no question that Southern food in the Bay is wanting, but we’ve found two women on a mission to change that. Spunky and steeped in tradition, join Stephanie Fields of Sugarfoot Grits and Fernay McPherson of Minnie Bell’s Soul Movement for the best home-cooked southern flavors this side of the Mason-Dixon. From Stephanie’s infamous grit-dumplings (with the prerequisite chicken, naturally) to Fernay’s famous fried chicken, this is one down-home party you don’t wanna miss.
The class includes dinner and hefty batch of leftovers to share with your friends the next day (or not, we wouldn't want to share them either), and open bar. Come cook and eat with us!
