Everything from candies, tea, beer, hot sauce, and ways to decorate your kitchen or equipment for making a roast. This is not a quick stop kind of place. You need to have at least an hour to go through everything and that might be not enough time. Very busy on weekends, especially if UNC is playing at home. Weekdays are the best times to go.

Really grateful to Southern Season for truly off the charts customer service and for creating something so special for my friend and hand-delivering it to her.

We made french macaroons... they did not turn out....seems like the recipe was not tried in advance...disappointing..that was why I went to the class.

We have attended numerous of these events and have always had a good experience. We do think the price is now at its limit to be a good value for the amount of food we get.

Got this as a present for a southern girl who relocated for love. She misses home, so the first chance we got, we sent her the Heritage basket. She loved it and took pictures of what it looked like. Honestly, was a lot bigger than I expected and was very professionally done (hate it when I order baskets and such and nothing looks like what I ordered).
Would highly recommend and will definitely be ordering again.

Joan Nathan herself was wonderful. However, the microphones were not properly adjusted for her voice to carry to the back where I was sitting - and I have excellent hearing. I made at least 2 requests for the mikes to be fixed better and nothing was done. Furthermore, the camera operator kept forgetting to focus on the FOOD preparation. I needed to use the screen to watch because of where I was sitting and I often couldn't really see what I needed to.
I have taken several cooking courses at SS and this was the most disappointing on a technical and preparation level. Usually, the helpers have everything out - or know where it is - and are tuned in immediately to what the guest chef needs. This was lacking in the Joan Nathan course.
These are expensive classes and, even if I am the only one with this kind of review, you should take pains to keep us coming back.

Used to love Southern Season. Unfortunately they have gone completely downhill since bankruptcy. They no longer honor their gift cards and the one class that I have attended since the acquisition was a total disappointment. Advanced gingerbread house decorating was like a young child's holiday themed party. I can believe I paid $50 for it. First, the woman teaching it was not knowledgeable of the subject. She made frosting so runny, it was a challenge to get candy to even stick to the house. They also didn't have enough candy and suggested we go buy more from the store ourselves. For the price of the class, enough candy should have been provided. Not sure I will ever sign up for another class at SS.

The perfect place to find that unusual ingredient or obscure piece of cooking equipment.
The cooking classes are just fabulous!

I loved attending this cooking class. Sherri Castle was a load of fun and provided tips that were valuable to both beginner cooks and more experienced ones. Cooking is my favorite hobby and I was worried that I wouldn't really learn anything new at the class, but I was wrong!
The food was tasty, too.

Although chef was very well informed, he attempted to do too much. Often had to move among recipes and he was clearly under pressure. Don't know if latter made him impolite to volunteers (only the women) but it seemed unnecessary and not humorous

Had exactly what I was looking for at a reasonable price. Fast shipping, excellent packaging.

I have been a long-time customer of Southern Season (since they were in Eastgate) but we moved away from NC 5 years ago due to a job relocation. I like to give Southern Season baskets for special occasions and in the past they had a great selection. For this most recent purchase the basket I wanted to send was out of stock, but I ordered it anyway since there was no rush to have it sent immediately. Customer service called and notified me that the item was out of stock and could not state when it would be available again. Therefore, I replaced the gift basket with another one at a similar price. I also had trouble with the website with my initial purchase, since NO e-mail confirmation was sent. Only after talking to Customer Service, did I receive an e-mail. I also am a Premier card holder and my discount and free shipping was not applied to this order. Overall, the gift basket selection online is limited and using the Premier card online does not work. For the future, I will stick with just purchasing items at the store when I am back in Chapel Hill (once a year). I love Southern Season, but since online purchasing is less satisfactory it makes sense to do only in-store purchases.

Review by DermDJ2 years ago
I have found the last two hands on classes wasteful of time. I will only attend non hands on from now on unless targeted for more advanced cooks. A long lesson in cutting onions, for instance, wasn't a good use of time for someone like me who has attended dozens of culinary classes. Could you offer hands on for more experienced home cooks?
