California Wine Country: American Regional Favorites

What to expect
  • Learn how to prepare seasonally focused dishes that originated from California's wine country at the Institute of Culinary Education
  • Impress your friends with expert cooking methods
  • Practice preparing exquisite meals
  • Step up your cooking game and gain some valuable new skills
The farms, orchards, and of course vineyards of California's wine country combine to turn the region into one of the most bountiful in the U.S.

The kitchens of Napa, Sonoma, and the Russian River Valley prepare seasonally focused dishes that highlight the quality of the ingredients at hand.

Learn to make some of those dishes in your own kitchen, including: Prosciutto-Wrapped Fuji Apples with a Sour Cherry-Balsamic Glaze; Scallops with Cauliflower Puree and Roasted Grapes in a Sauvignon Blanc Reduction; Fennel-Crusted Pork Loin with a Pinot Noir Glaze; Bucatini with Pistachio-Arugula-Lemon Pesto; Roasted Shaved Brussels Sprouts; and Chardonnay-Poached Pears with Creme Anglaise. You will enjoy these with a selection of California wines.

Note: Minimum age requirement of 18 to attend classes.

Two weeks withdrawal notice is required for a refund. However, a $20 transaction fee will be deducted from the refund for each and every class seat registration that is canceled by the registrant/student. When a class is dropped 3-13 days prior to the start date, only school class credit will be issued, and the transaction fee will be deducted (see above). Rescheduling a class still entails a cancellation and, therefore, a transaction fee will still be charged to customers. There are no refunds or school credit issued when fewer than 48 hours notice from the class start date is given.
