Barrington Hall in Roswell cooks up culinary classes

Chef teaches in historic home



ROSWELL, Ga. – Chef John Wilson, a Roswell resident, returns to the kitchen to give special culinary lessons at Barrington Hall.

Wilson has been teaching the popular cooking classes at Barrington Hall since 2006. He was trained at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. Until recently, he owned a cooking school in Roswell and also owned Culinary Vacations, a business that would combine sightseeing trips with regional cuisine cooking lessons in France, Italy and Spain. Wilson has also taught at Cook’s Warehouse and the Viking Cooking School.

Wilson’s classes have been very popular, said Bill Browning, special events director of Barrington Hall. Wilson teaches cooking techniques in a number of cuisines, with French, Italian, Mexican and Cajun to name just a few. The chef teaches in the modern kitchen of historic Barrington Hall regularly throughout the year.

The cost of the classes is $50 per person and advance reservations are required (each class is limited to 10 students maximum). After preparing the meal under Wilson’s instruction, the students dine on it in the kitchen of Barrington Hall. Complimentary wine is served and a free mini tour of Barrington Hall is included with each class.
