LEARN TO COOK LIKE A CHEF!
Gettysburg is known for its long-standing history of rich agriculture, and we are proud to showcase our area's finest produce, meats, honey and cheese. Taste how truly delicious fresh food can be - Saturday morning just got even better!
Join our local chefs for a colorful walk through Gettysburg's Farmer's Market, where they will take you through the market and show you how to shop like a chef. This dynamic downtown experience is filled with inspiration coupled with chef's tips and techniques. You will never look at fresh produce the same! Then it's on to the kitchen for a hands-on cooking class where the chef will teach you how to turn the bounty from the market into creative and delicious dishes, paired with local wines. The menus are created based on seasonal ingredients, all 100% delicious and fun and easy to prepare.
The limited group size of eight guests per class makes the tour intimate and gives you a greater opportunity to immerse yourself in the whole Gettysburg food experience while developing newly taught skills and techniques. Our itineraries are designed for a more personal and rich experience, so you walk away feeling inspired and ready to create dishes in your own kitchen.
"There is no better way to get to the heart of any city than through its cuisine. And that means not just eating it, but shopping for it, cooking it and beginning to understand it." Taylor Holliday, New York Times

Frequently Asked Questions:
"Celebrity" Chef Karl Held was born and raised in Gettysburg, PA. He maintained his ties to Gettysburg while living in New York City for much of his adult life, building an illustrious career in music and theater. He worked with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops, earned multiple award nominations for his work on Broadway productions like "Ragtime" and "Into the Woods," and worked alongside the likes of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. Back in Adams County, he was heavily involved in the restoration of Gettysburg's Majestic Theater and the development of the Gettysburg Festival.
For years, Held also cooked for friends in his own home and later for private gatherings in New York. For the last three years, he's taught private cooking classes for Adams County residents in their own kitchens.
So, his transition from the theater to the kitchen wasn't such a major adjustment. Taking a self-described hiatus from Broadway, Held says running a kitchen is very much like overseeing a production.
