Hi everyone! We’re Ginger and Holly Howell – Welcome to the Seasonal Kitchen Cooking School, now in its 45th year of bringing great food and good times to foodies everywhere. Our menus change constantly, always using seasonal, fresh ingredients, and hopefully making life easy for the cook. Ginger doesn’t make dishes that take hours to prepare and she doesn’t use ingredients you can’t pronounce or buy at the market. She loves to entertain, but she wants to be with her friends, not working in the kitchen! She hopes that her food is reasonably healthy, but she does admit to a certain predilection for butter, cream and chocolate – hey, it worked for Julia! Holly is wild about wine and a Certified Sommelier from the Master Court of London. But don’t let that scare you!
Her classes are "serious" fun. Spend an hour or two with Holly and her knowledge and enthusiasm will transport to you to places from the Finger Lakes to the Greek Isles! In between classes by the two of us, some of the best chefs in town do demonstrations here and these classes are really popular – we even have a 4-star chef from a fabulous Vermont restaurant who pops in twice a year – and he has plenty of fans! The Seasonal Kitchen is a fun place to be. You’ll get great instruction, a terrific meal and go home armed with recipes and pairing ideas to do your own party. Come and see us. We’d love to meet you!

Zucchini, tomato and gouda melt - a very good place to start! Farmers market pasta is a magical melange of the season's bounty and the best darn pasta in our repetoire. An incredibly delicious roast chicken is paired with a four-star gratin of beans, tomatoes and bacon. Luscious baked peaches and ice cream are a sweet ending. All this and wines by Holly. Corkscrew, please!

Turn back the clock, get out the sweaters and put a pot roast in the oven! Sip autumn fruit sangria and nosh on rosemary braised mushrooms. That pot roast is simmered in red wine along with root veggies and served with a creamy apple slaw and bacon cheese biscuits. Oh-so-good apple cake with brown sugar rum sauce is the fall finale. Does the word "comfy" come to mind?
Holly is thrilled to be hosting this AMAWaterways River Cruise through one of her favorite French wine regions - BORDEAUX! Begin with a two night stay in Paris, the magical “City of Light,” and enjoy a panoramic tour of the city’s top sights. Continue on to Bordeaux, the capital of Aquitaine in Southwestern France and one of the world’s undisputed wine capitals. You’ll discover stately chateaux, abundant vineyards and stunning scenery as you sail along the Garonne River and its surrounding estuaries, calling upon port cities like Cadillac, Bourg and Libourne. Enjoy tastings of some of the region’s most distinguished wines and visit notable sights before concluding your journey with a two night stay in the Loire Valley and one night in Paris.
