Class Assistants

Add another dimension to your cooking experience by being a Class Assistant. Class Assistants attend the class for free in exchange for helping with the class, plus earn free classes while working behind the scenes with our talented chef-instructors.

There are many benefits to assistanting with a class, including:

  • Class Assistants with chef Gerard Nebesky "The Paella Guy"Receive class recipe packet
  • Savor the event's wine and food
  • Interact behind-the-scenes with chefs and winemakers
  • Learn new cooking tips and techniques
  • Earn one free class* for every three assisted classes
  • 10% discount on Relish merchandise and gift certificates
  • Have fun!

Class Assistant obligations include:

  • Committing approximately 6 hours of time for each class, most of which is on your feet.
  • Arrive 1.5 hours before the class to help prep
  • Class Assistants with celebrity chef John AshAssist the chef with plating and serving food, facilitate cooking, serve water and wine and clear dishes during the class
  • Stay 1 hour after the class to help straighten up
  • Have hair pulled back and wear comfortable, close-toed shoes and nice, casual clothing. No sleeveless shirts. Jeans discouraged except at farm classes. Relish will provide aprons.
  • Provide at least 5 days notice if you are unable to assist at a class
  • Have fun!

Our goal is to have enough Class Assistants (plus the chef-instructor and a Relish manager) at each class so everyone enjoys the class and the tasks go easily and quickly for all. The number of Assistants varies depending on the class, where it is, how many attendees, etc. It is critical for Class Assistants to attend the classes they commit to--we are counting on you.

*After your third assisted class, you can choose any class to attend up to $100 value. You are welcome to pay the difference if you choose to attend a class that is higher in price. Please note that our standard cancellation policy also applies to Class Assistant credits.

Please note that you can also give your free class to another person to use.

We will assign Class Assistants on a first come, first served basis, so check out the current schedule of events and contact us by phone at 707.431.9999 or email to select the class(es) that interest you.
