King and Prince Features CUISINE, ART & COASTAL LORE
St. Simons Island, GA (August 9, 2010) Stay at the historic King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort as this award-winning oceanfront hotel hosts guests who are interested in coming to the Island for Bobi Saal’s newly created www.USA-IslandCookingClasses.com
Recognized internationally as an educator, business woman and devoted ‘foodie’, Saal returned from her own culinary adventure in Italy deciding to open the door on the Georgia coast to the same kind of unforgettable vacation that goes beyond just having a great time.
“Stay at the King and Prince Hotel and feel the genuine history of our island. Experience Southern cuisine by stepping into the kitchens of amazing chefs and cook right along side of them; capture the beauty of the island and create a piece of watercolor art. When my guests get home and hang their painting, cook delicious recipes for friends and talk about the history of the island, hopefully they will always remember the magic of our coastal Georgia adventure”.
The first debut event is launching September 19 – 24, 2010 ~ for five nights of hands-on cooking, art and island fun. Attendance is limited to 6-12 people for this and all upcoming scheduled dates. IslandCookingClasses pricing begins at $2,440.
The itinerary is extensive – from daily Southern breakfast buffet at the King and Prince to classes, meals, shrimp boat excursion, receptions, photography island tour and wine tastings. Full details are on Saal’s website including international and domestic suggestions for transportation.
