Mediterranean Cooking in the Wine Country
Santa Ynez Valley - Los Olivos
September 28, 29, 30 2018
California Culinary Retreats weekends are all inclusive. That means all your meals and drinks, your 4 cooking classes, accommodations, materials, and take home items are included in the price. All you have to do is get yourself to your retreat, and leave the rest to us!
The Weekend in Brief
We can’t think of a better cuisine to celebrate in Los Olivos. We’ll cook a diverse collection of Mediterranean cuisines that are naturally healthy and vibrant. Each class will result in a feast to be paired with California wines.
Your 4 classes will begin with an overview lecture and then move to cooking in the kitchen. We will dine together at beautifully set tables under the stars, and sit by the outdoor fire place in the evenings. When you are not cooking you are free to relax, go for a hike, or go for a stroll around town - your choice.
The retreat begins on Friday afternoon between 4 - 6pm, and we will conclude our weekend Sunday after a leisurely late lunch.
Arancini, stuffed artichokes, Sicilian-style grilled fish, and cannoli
Lamb and vegetable tagine, pearl couscous, assorted salads, harissa
