Reserve Your Stay

Much more than a demonstration kitchen, this Cooking Studio is unique in that it opens directly into our kitchens.

Visiting Chefs can interact with the cooking studio guests while preparing full meals or select dishes. The Studio also offers a wide range of cooking classes for children and adults, and includes specialty cooking such as vegan, vegetarian, low-fat, and low sodium. The Studio is available for private dinner parties where you and your guests can participate or just watch the meal’s preparation while conversing with the chef. Enjoy a fabulous meal, then leave the cleanup of the kitchen and dishes to us.

Gingerbread House Classes

Salamander Resort & Spa invites you to help in building this year’s Gingerbread Village. Participants will work alongside two-time Food Network Winner and Pastry Chef Jason Reaves and his team in our Cooking Studio to make a model of Northern Virginia out of gingerbread and sweets. Every class we’ll build on the village with the final display unveiled during the resort’s annual Family Thanksgiving Buffet. Bring your siblings (and your sweet tooth) and join us on any of the following dates to build your very own part of this masterpiece!
