Cozy Winter Cooking

January is the best month to nest....the cold weather demands luscious comforting food, designed to renew and rejuvenate. Even in the middle of winter, there are so many wonderful local flavors to enjoy, from creative cooking with colorful winter roots to the delicious trend in all things Brussels Sprout, from bright fresh winter citrus to those exquisite wild mushrooms...

Thank goodness for all the rain—it's great news on all fronts: for the drought, for the farms and for the wild mushrooms! We're thrilled about the feature in the SF Chronicle and the exposure means that classes are filling up fast, so sign up soon if you want to forage with us this year!

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

Grab your sweetie and join us! More info

The SF Chronicle article generated so much interest that all of our February and March forays are pretty much full. Hoping the rains continue, we added one more date on April 10. You can register now but we will not run any payments until two weeks before when the weather situation is clearer.
