Preserving Place is a natural light filled storefront with an interactive kitchen and dining area.  It’s located in Westside Provisions shopping district, one of my favorite areas in Atlanta. Recently my gal pal Sarah Dodge took over the classroom, photography and social media role.  She’s helping spread the word of what they offer and that anyone of any cooking (or non-cooking) background can join in and have some fun while learning skills and recipes.

When the Spring class schedule came out I was drawn to several classes.  As a birthday gift to myself, I attended the Biscuits + Jam class on March 24th with my girl friend Natasha.  When I got there I was pleasantly surprised to see many familiar faces as well as meeting some new ones like Blayne of This Photographer’s Life -who is so funny and great with a camera.

The class was a hit, take a look–

The table was beautifully set while we cooked. I couldn’t keep my eyes off that delicious looking bacon! In between mixing and learning we sipped on wine they provided, keeping things silly and light-hearted!

We were put in teams of two and went down the recipe step by step with instructor Sarah leading the way. Our class had some jokesters, myself and Natasha included, along with Conner who’s a local stand up comedian who was challenging the class and cracking us up!  We had fun with it and didn’t take things too seriously which is what I’ve realized I love with the people I know and Atlanta as a whole.

Sarah shared many tips with us, which I won’t give away because you should just join in on the fun! We filled our bellies with biscuits, bacon, wine, fruit preserves and filled our minds with memories of a JAM’n good time!
