The Zero George Cooking School: Dining At Charleston’s Best Hotels

The Daily Meal: All Things Food and Drink has listed Zero George as a hotel that offers more than just a lovely room. It is rather “a hotel that celebrates the local culinary flair and provides a chance for guests to cook, tour, and taste in a variety of settings.”


Along with a concept that strives to use fresh, indigenous ingredients, Zero’s Executive Chefs instruct students on how to think their way around the kitchen like a chef, teaching techniques and proper ratios for well-balanced dishes.

“Food is a focus at the property,” DM writes. “They offer hands-on cooking classes with chef Randy Williams, who shares with guests how to use local ingredients in popular Lowcountry dishes.” Another primary focus is Zero Café + Bar lead by Chef Vinson Petrillo serving contemporary American cuisine concentrated around farm-to-table ingredients.

Like Zero Café+Bar, the ZG Cooking School prides itself on its close relationship with the Charleston community. That means using locally sourced, responsibly farmed ingredients that shift with the season.


Summer brings us a new, fresh Cooking School menu, beginning with a Chilled Honeydew Puree, Pan Roasted Quail with a succotash made with all local vegetables, and finishing with a tasty Berry Cobbler.


Currently, our summer chefs-in-training will cook with fruits and vegetables sourced from farm partners Ambrose Farms, including honeydew, shishito peppers, corn, heirloom tomatoes, and butter beans.

Can’t make it to a class? Try making our Berry Cobbler at home. Perfect for a backyard barbeque, this tasty dessert is inspired by the warm weather and sun ripened fruits that make summer so special. We hope you enjoy!
