Cooking Classes


Paired with outstanding wines from the best wine producing region in the world, the Cedar Gables Inn offers the Ultimate Napa Culinary Experience:  "Hands-On" cooking classes with Great Chefs of Napa Valley  in a Culinary Showcase Kitchen. Following the class you will enjoy the fruits of your labor by feasting on your creations and world class wines in the Inn's elegant dining room.


Food and wine enthusiasts enjoy these "Hands-On" Classes designed to be small and intimate (12 students).   The only requirements are a love for great food, fine wine and having fun.

Class sizes are small and therefore sell out quickly.  Call now to get your spot in the class @ (707) 224-7969.
