A one-room baking school in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Classroom. Studio. Community space. The Walnut Schoolhouse is an ongoing venture in Western North Carolina that seeks a broader sort of culinary education. Offering classes on regional baking and cooking, culinary history, art & food, and food culture, the Schoolhouse hopes to connect us with our past & present, our hands, and with one another.


Please note: this is not a retail bakery. The space is used for workshops and the occasional community event, but our baked goods can only be found at markets and various sales.
