Celebrating 11 years of delicious adventures!

A culinary education business in Healdsburg, California, in the heart of the Sonoma County wine country.

Relish combines talented chefs, fabulous cuisine, and captivating Sonoma County locations, including the beautiful Relish Culinary Center in downtown Healdsburg, to create one-of-a-kind wine country cooking classes, tours and other creative culinary events for individuals, groups, and businesses.

Our goal is to celebrate seasonal, local food and provide a fresh and inspiring learning experience for everyone at every event.

Returning this winter are the Chef's Tables, delicious dinners and conversations with the area's top chefs, including Mark Stark (Willi's, Monte's, Bravas, etc.), Louis Maldonado (Top Chef, Spoonbar), Billy Reid (Hopmonk), Todd Knoll (Jordan Winery), Justin Wangler (Kendall-Jackson), and more to be announced.

Hands-On HealdsburgWith so many hands-on reasons to visit during the winter, from cocktail mixing to flower arranging, pork butchering to grapevine pruning, book binding to mushroom foraging, Healdsburg is a great year-round destination.

Speaking of MUSHROOMS....Our ever-popular wild mushroom forays are in full swing with a slew of mushrooms as a result of the recent storms. Our unique mushroom events combine a foraging experience with a gourmet seasonal meal. A few spots are available in upcoming events, the last of the season! Sign up soon.

Please join us at a Relish event that celebrates the unique seasonal flavors of the wine country.
