It’s heating up…in the kitchen! If you’ve always dreamed of a cooking school vacation, look no further. Summer is the perfect time to relax and learn the basics or refine skills for our more seasoned guests. Seasoned Chef Ben Baker will be alongside as you hone your knife skills and experiment with locally sourced, organic ingredients.

Cooking courses are just one of the many things to do in Austin that we offer here at Travaasa. Once you’ve mastered the kitchen, move on to Travaasa Austin’s Wine Pairing course

Here’s a sampling of the culinary experience to provoke your palate:


  • Appetizer 101. Otherwise known as the perfect patio party food, Chef Ben will share his favorite healthy small plates that will eliminate the stress from your next party prep.


  • Fish 101. Enter our top-notch industrial kitchen to learn different fish techniques and recipes that transform fish preparation from a daunting challenge to a simple process. After the class, dine on your delicious catch on the Mesquite Patio.


Leave cooking school vacation ready to impress friends and family at your next backyard feast.
