Ever wonder “how do they do it?” ever want to sneak into the kitchen at your favorite restaurant and watch masters at work? Here at SUGAR & SPICE, “they” is just Marilyn, long-time owner of The Mansion of Golconda, former Chef at Green Turtle Bay and Author of Two cookbooks, “More To Love” and “Happy Endings”. After teaching cooking classes at Kitchen Affairs in Evansville Indiana, for ten years, and a semester of International Cuisine at West Kentucky Technical College in Paducah, Marilyn chose Grand Rivers as the location for an open kitchen classroom, to teach social cooking as entertainment.

 

And what a kitchen. SUGAR & SPICE is located in the former residence of Patti & Bill Tullar, founders of Patti’s 1880’s Settlement. the Tullar Family renovated the building, returning the interior back to Patti’s unique perspective. To meet licensing requirements for local and state restaurant codes, they sponsored the cabinetry, the stainless steel amenities and the underlying and unseen support system. Result: a perfect combination of function and design. Reason: to give Marilyn their mother’s dream kitchen, so she could achieve her longtime goal.

 

While based on television cooking shows, there are significant differences. This is a working kitchen in a real house, not a stage set. Click on the Cooking Class Schedule link for a list of our upcoming classes. Don't see one you like or that fits into your schedule? Call for information about how a class can be customized for you and a small group of friends. Then come hungry, enjoy "the show," eat a full meal of all the dishes prepared and take home copies of these delicious recipes to share with your family and friends.

 

Go on through to the back of the house, where Marilyn works in the single most beautiful commercial kitchen in all of Western Kentucky. Sit at the 12’ marble counter, and read through the meal descriptions of class offerings on the summer/fall schedule. Even if you never have to cook another meal as long as you live, you’ll still want to stay, watch, learn and EAT.
