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.

Along with Dacor Kitchen Appliances, we are now working with Messermeister.  They provide the highest quality knives and culinary tools in the world.  Their products are fully warranted for the life of the user.

Take one of our classes and experience the knives for yourself.  If you take the class and like the knives you can order any of their fantastic products at a 25% discount.  We will give you the discount code in the class.  Click on the Messermeister Logo and it will take you to their website where you can order.
