Our cooking classes use organic and fresh local produce, which allows our chefs to create scrumptious menus that change seasonally to reflect the best of what Sonoma has to offer. On our culinary tour in Sonoma you’ll learn how to create delicious meals that showcase the best of California cuisine. Our chefs will not only show you how to prepare a meal that compliments the season, but will also give you tips on how to get creative with the recipe at home. Once the cooking classes are over, we’ll all sit down and enjoy the fruits of our labor, along with a delicious glass of local wine.
