Texas Fusion Cooking Classes.....from the Ranch
Pamela Murski enjoys sharing her passion for food, food pathways and cooking while intertwining stories of growing up living off the land throughout the class. Classes are held on Saturdays, from 9:30 – 3:30, menus are based upon our conversations, the season, market availability and are 5-8 courses, dependent upon the clienteles inclinations. Classes are booked weeks in advance, as menus are not recycled but rather developed individually for each new season and each new group of guests of cooking friends, based upon their desires and palates. We host only four overnight guests onsite but can accommodate up to 6 in the class for those who want to bring another couple for their cooking midday party.
Class Cost is $495 per person, minimum of 2 people required, plus the room. We have a two night minimum stay requirement at the ranch year round. To provide you with a customized experience, classes are booked by phone.

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."
