Chef Patty Griffey sizes up her students with a smile that lets us know the only island in the room is the sizable one on which we’ll chop, whisk and stir. Cooking class is a team affair at Abingdon, and while the reputation of its AAA four-diamond dining room seems to be in the hands of novices today, it’s all good. The chef is an experienced pro, an expert at dishing out instruction with a heavy dollop of patience and praise and a pinch (or two or three) of laughter for good measure.
