Door County cooking class/girlfriends getaway

I am looking for a fall getaway weekend in Door County with girlfriends that involves cooking. We also enjoy shopping and eating, but would like a cooking class as part of our fall trip. - Nancy, Oconomowoc, Wis.

What a killer combo — cooking, shopping, eating. Why don't you try the Savory Spoon Cooking School in Ellison Bay? It's got some great-sounding classes in October  — Fun With French Pastry, Chocolate Decadence, Spanish Paella Party, Elegant Appetizers, Simply Italian. They're $55-$65.

The best fall color comes a little later than the rest of Wisconsin. I'd say aim for the second or third weekend of October. You can catch the Townline Art Fair in Ephraim Oct. 10-11 and the Fall Festival in Sister Bay Oct. 16-18. You're smart to plan now!
