If you know anything about the Atlanta food scene, you know Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit. This Virginia Highlands breakfast staplehouse serves up the most incredible biscuits. And if you know me, you know for the past several years I’ve been on a journey to master baking alllll the carbs. I’ve tackled babkas, croissants, sourdough boules, but biscuits have always eluded me.
You’d think that compared to the micro-measurements and exacting methodologies of baking fine pastries and breads, the “dump in flour until it looks right” and “mix it just a little bit” process of making biscuits would be simple. But despite my distinctly southern roots, I never had the grandma in the kitchen with flour splayed everywhere and rolling pin in hand. I didn’t have the role model I needed to learn how to concoct the perfect biscuit. And try as I may, my feeble attempts always resulted in something that sat on the tummy more like a rock than a fluffy white cloud.
Frankly, I’d given up hope. Callie’s isn’t that far of a drive from me, I had resigned to the fact that if I wanted biscuits, I’d have to get in the car. (Lucky for me, shortly thereafter Callie’s began offering their biscuits frozen through retailers like Publix and Fresh Market). But then my friend Paige of The Pink Clutch Blog asked if I would come photograph her and her friends trying out Callie’s new biscuit making classes. Rejoice! Was this old dog about to learn some new tricks? I was about to find out.
I cannot recommend this class enough! It’s a super fun casual environment where you get to learn all the steps of making the perfect biscuit in a hands-on way. Callie’s method takes out all the confusion and intimidation and makes it super simple! You leave the class with a warm batch of biscuit goodness to take home and show off to your friends and family.
Callie’s offers a classic biscuit making class for adults and a confetti biscuit making class for kids at their Charleston, Atlanta, and Charlotte locations. If you’re looking for a fun outing with friends or family, why not pick up a new skill along the way? Check out Paige’s review of the class here and get signed up for a class here.
