Welcome to Tonya's Table Cooking Classes for adults & kids!

Located in Smithfield, NC

Come to the farmhouse and gather around my kitchen to prepare delicious meals. As a fourth generation cook, I learned from some of the best in the kitchen! My story begins in 2005 when I started Griceland Bakery with a desire to provide made-from-scratch cakes and desserts. Seventeen years later, I decided to transition to cooking classes. Now, I get to live out a passion and inspire others in the kitchen by teaching them how to make classic, southern dishes.

In each class, participants learn hands-on and cook their own food. We have such a great time learning together!

If you've ever been to a Tonya's Table Cooking Class, then you know we use a lot of helpful and cool kitchen tools. Most of these items are available from Amazon. I have linked them all for you. 

*Tonya's Table gives back!

A portion of what I make for these classes is given to ministries that are important to my family: Focus on the Family provides resources for healthy marriages that reflect God's design as well as for parents to raise their children according to morals and values grounded in biblical principles as they learn about God and His beautiful design for the family as well as protect themselves from the harmful influences of culture. NC Baptist Children's Homes (Foster Care Ministry) provides temporary or permanent homes for children in need with the belief that every child deserves to be loved and cared for in a safe and stable home.
