Attractions, Workshops


We teach the basics of Appalachian cooking through live demonstration classes. Join us in our homestyle kitchen where our instructors incorporate culinary techniques and season it with folklore to make cooking fun. Watch, learn, and then eat an Appalachian-inspired meal. If you’re not taking a class, come browse our Appalachian store.


Cooking a 4 course meal with Chef Stephanie was awesome!! The food was incredible, and Stephanie was amazing at walking us through all the steps and answering our questions. We made delicious Chicken n Dumplins, a fried corn medley with the perfect amount of bacon grease, an awesome buttermilk cornbread, and a towering old fashioned banana pudding to top it all off! This cooking class is a Must when you visit Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg - Stephanie is phenomenal, the shop has such cute gifts, and the class let's you recreate a taste of Appalachia at home!

This place was absolutely great! The whole experience, the merchandise, the fudge, the sauces!! ....but most of all the people! The owners/ employees... these people are so friendly and welcoming! It's a must stop in if you are in the area.

Smoky Mountain School of Cooking was such a cool experience!! It will be a new tradition to learn more things each time we come. We made everything from scratch and then sat down and ate it all together. We cooked Chicken and dumplings, biscuits, fried corn medley and banana pudding with merengue. We will definitely be back to cook more.
