About Our Events

A Relish cooking class is the perfect complement to your wine country experience. Step into another world and meet the chefs, food purveyors, and winemakers that make Sonoma County a food and wine destination. Relish creates a relaxed, festive environment for everyone from beginners to seasoned chefs. Our professional chef- instructors will ensure that you leave every class with new techniques, recipes, ideas and inspiration.


Cooking classes are held at various Sonoma County locations as listed with each class description, including the new Relish Culinary Center. We send directions to class locations with each class confirmation and provide directions to most locations (except private homes) on our website.


Students receive copies of all recipes and full meal portions of all menu items unless otherwise noted on the class description.


Demonstration classes are observation-style with students comfortably seated at tables facing the cooking area with high-definition cameras and televisions (at the Relish Culinary Center) or an overhead mirror (at roving classes). All classes are demonstration unless otherwise noted. The Relish Culinary Center can accommodate up to 36 guests for demonstration classes. “Roving” demonstration classes are limited to 24 guests. Demonstration classes last approximately 3 hours unless otherwise noted.


Hands-on classes allow students to cook the meal themselves. Typically, a hands-on class consists of three parts: a brief lecture, cooking under the guidance of the chef, and, of course, eating. Usually, students work in small groups on one or more recipes in parallel with the other groups. For a hands-on class, we ask that you dress in comfortable, casual clothing and closed-toed shoes and have long hair pulled back. Hands-on classes are limited to 20 students and last approximately 3½ hours unless otherwise noted.


Staff for each class includes the chef-instructor, a Relish manager, and at least two volunteer assistants. Often representatives from the class location, the winery whose wine is poured for the event, or other special guests also may participate in the class.

We reserve the right to substitute menu items and ingredients due to availability.

By attending a Relish event, you agree to be photographed or filmed and give permission to use your likeness in promotional materials.


Students over 21 years of age will be offered two 6-ounce glasses of wine (or, at some classes, aperitif, beer or cocktails) served with the food. Participants may be asked to present identification to prove that they are of legal California drinking age.


Participation in a Relish hands-on class places you in a typical cooking environment with inherent risk. By registering for a Relish event, you agree to release Relish and its staff, employees and contractors, from all liability arising from direct or indirect damages or injury.

Chef biographies, location descriptions, registration information, directions, recipes, news and announcements are available on the Relish website.

Cooking Class Gift Certificates Make great holiday gifts!

“Our son and daughter-in-law wanted to give my husband and me a present that wasn’t ‘stuff.’ They told me, ‘All we want, mom, is to be with you and dad and partake in a meal.’ Our Relish class was a perfect present &experience that we’ll remember forever.”
