The concept behind Silver Dollar City’s Culinary & Craft School was to showcase the skills and artistry of the Master Craftsman within this internationally recognized theme park. Instead of simply displaying their work in shops around the park, the craftsman present their work as it might be used in an actual home. The Craftsmen’s Showcase room presents the park’s expert craftsmen, with such elements as a curved wood front door with iron overlays, hammered copper tiles framing the fireplace, a chip-carved wood mantle, a six-foot chandelier made from 500 amber blown spheres, and handmade wood furniture.

The demonstration kitchen allows for culinary and craft classes to be conducted within the 3,000 square foot timber frame building. Styled as a turn-of-the century farmhouse, the building is a unique blend of American heritage traditions and state-of-the-art conveniences, including a spectacular Kitchen Showroom with Viking appliances, flat-screen TV’s for overhead views, and a tiered seating for viewing. Buxton Kubik Dodd Creative was contracted to do the interior design.

Classes have begun with the new season, they are listed on the Silver Dollar City website. They even offer a special Mother's Day Brunch!
