New Culinary Workshops on Petit Jean Mountain

Visit my Arkansas every Monday for a look at what’s going on in the world of arts and culture. 
 
 
Winthrop Rockefeller Institute on Petit Jean Mountain near Morrilton has had a fabulous culinary program for the last few years. This year you’ll see some new workshops to take advantage of, and I plan to do just that with a group of girlfriends.
Here’s what’s coming up in January:

The knife is the single most important tool in the kitchen. Guest Chef Robert Hall will introduce participants to kitchen knives and how to use and care for them.
