One of my favorite hotels along the Mississippi River and my favorite in the city of Baton Rouge is the Hilton Capitol Center. It’s an historic property that breathes legends of Louisiana politics and the charm of Louisiana’s capitol city, welcoming visitors with a charm that is only Baton Rouge. One thing we have perfected here in Baton Rouge is the art of outdoor cooking.
Most Baton Rouge women are raised with a love of outdoor meals (when the weather is right) and how to make tailgating a classy event. During football season, you’ll find grills smoking with the delicacies being served buffet style on designer tablecloths in shades of purple and gold. It’s only fitting that Viking Cooking Schools would open their first outdoor cooking school in this city and at the fabulous Baton Rouge Hilton Capitol Center.
This fall, poolside overlooking the mighty Mississippi, groups of girlfriends, couples, and visitors to Baton Rouge from around the world, will take part in the classic culinary learning of cooking schools, with a Louisiana twist – outdoors.
All this talk of cooking outdoors makes me want to step up the plans to built an outdoor kitchen on my back patio. If you love food, wine, and travel, then make plans to check out this innovative new cooking school soon to open at the Hilton Capitol Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
