Cooking Class Guest Review:

"A Weekend to Remember" Food at the Murski Homestead Bed and Breakfast "Where do I begin? Our weekend at Murski Homestead was one I will never forget from Fridays welcome which included what Pamela calls "heavy appetizer" (a gourmet feast) to our Sunday morning departure. The Murski Homestead is only about an hour and 1/2 from Houston but it felt like we had left the "big city" behind. The ride up the winding gravel road with donkeys and cows grazing peacefully ends at the top of a hill overlooking the charming hamlet of Brenham. I could feel the stress slipping away. But I have to admit the most impressive part of the weekend was the opportunity to talk to and cook with Pamela. She is a master chef who grows her own herbs in winding beds. Saturday morning, she and I picked the herbs and lettuces we would use in preparing our truly magnificent meal Saturday night. Later in the day she drove us to a chili cook off and wine tasting at Windy Hill Winery where a world class guitarist played for us while we savored chili and wine with the locals. Banana SouffleOn our return to the homestead, she and I began to prepare our Saturday night meal. I was allowed to do as much or as little as wanted to in the commercial kitchen while my husband enjoyed visiting with the animals. outdoors, worked a little on a jigsaw puzzle, and generally "vegged out". I chose to take advantage of learning as much as I possibly could about preparing the savory blue cheese appetizer, osso buco beef shanks, roasted winter vegetables with balsamic vinegar and EVOO, and couscous with dried cherries and fresh roasted hazelnuts. When my husband and I sat down to begin our feast, Pamela whipped together a truly elegant banana soufflé for our dessert. What a meal!! Murski Homestead offers a unique combination of traditional bed and breakfast amenities with an opportunity to receive some individual cooking lessons from a master chef. I know we will be back."
