photo essay: a cooking class and happy independence day


Nik Sharma

Hey Friends, Iโ€™m a multi-award-winning and best-selling cookbook author and photographer.


Happy Independence Day from Charleston! We finally had a day with no rain and plenty of sunshine. Here are some more photographs from our trip and a fun southern cooking class we took at Maverick’s Southern Kitchen. Charleston is a city full of beautiful mansions and well manicured gardens that makes walking around a visual treat. Our cooking class was great and we cooked up several different southern dishes and desserts. I highly recommend visiting the store and taking a class at Maverick’s if you visit. I hope you enjoy some of the sights from my trip. Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend!
