Visitors to Ocean Springs have a wonderful opportunity at the Mary C.
O’Keefe Cultural Center. The building was once an old schoolhouse but
was made into a cultural center complete with classrooms for pottery
lessons, woodcarving and oil painting lessons, a music studio and a
performing arts stage. Inside the Cultural Center is a first-rate
cooking school sponsored by Viking and the IP Casino Resort & Spa.
The state-of-the-art kitchen has beautiful handmade art, all by local
artists and available for purchase. The culinary classes range from
beginning skills in the kitchen to inspiring hands-on workshops to learn
the basics of cuisine from other cultures and to challenge cooks with
new techniques and cooking styles. In the café you will see volunteers
lending a hand and these special culinary volunteers have a special
name. They are called “The Julias.”
