Sandi Graham, Owner

It was a long-time dream to own a cooking and sewing school.  I (finally) opened Vintage Kitchen after 27 years of teaching Family and Consumer Sciences at middle school, high school, and college levels as well as teaching undergraduate and graduate nutrition courses.

I have earned Bachelor of Science degrees in Home Economics and Nutrition from Mansfield State University and a Master of Sciences in Community Nutrition with an emphasis in Sports Nutrition from Georgia State University.

Cooking classes at Vintage Kitchen are designed to incorporate food science, time-management, nutrition, and, most importantly, fun.  You need to eat to live, so you may as well enjoy the process!
