Red Gingham Gourmet


Hi there!

My name is Laura Hanback Hester, Founder and Owner of Red Gingham Gourmet. Thank you for visiting my site!

My fondest childhood memories are of clinging to the aprons of my grandmother and mother, begging to help with the cooking. Over the generations, my family has refined the art of southern cooking and developed a reputation in our community (Florence, Alabama) for our superb baking.

I have always loved baking and planning meals and menus. I began teaching "Kids Cooking Classes" in 2014 and quickly realized it was my true passion. I will be adding new classes all the time.
