Taste of the Mountains Frequently Asked Questions


Are these classes for beginners?

All our classes are intended for all levels of students, from beginners to experts. Each class offers creative recipes from the menu for that day, as well as many tips and techniques for everyday cooking to bring back home to your kitchen. It is the goal of each class to offer new techniques and ideas for every level, from fastidious foodies to first-timers.


Are the classes hands on?

A Taste of the Mountains classes are designed to be completely hands-on. The class sizes are intentionally kept to a maximum of eight students to allow plenty of individual attention from the teacher/chef. As a student you will have the chance to prepare and eat the dishes from the days’ menu. If you just want to relax and watch others while enjoying a glass of wine, we’re okay with that too. It’s all about enjoying your experience in A Taste of the Mountains kitchen.

How do I register for a class?

Please call (603)383-4200 to book your cooking classes. We also offer online reservations. We will ask for a credit card number to hold your reservation and a seven-day cancellation policy is in effect. Please give us a call with any questions you may have.


How much do I get to eat?

During our classes you will get the equivalent of a full meal. Often there is more to take home. You will also enjoy wine, beer or soft drinks with your meal.

How many people are in the classes?

All classes accommodate 8 students maximum. We will never exceed 8, but your class may be smaller than 8 students.

What are my chances of getting in the class if I am on the waitlist?

We always suggest signing up for the waitlist for any class, because there is a good chance of getting in and there is no commitment if you can’t make it. On occasion there will be a last-minute cancellation. We call our waitlist immediately if someone cancels. Watch the Bernerhof Inn Facebook page too.

Do we need to bring anything to the class?

No. We provide all the equipment and food, an apron, printed recipe handouts as well as wine, beer and soda. Simply bring your enthusiasm!
