Celebrating 20 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 rural settings, including the beautiful Relish Culinary Center in downtown Healdsburg, to create one-of-a-kind authentic food experiences, including 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.

The Best of 15 Years
at the Relish Culinary Center

Relish Culinary Adventures is moving out of our downtown Healdsburg location in April. After 15 years in this wonderul and unique space in this wonderful and unique town, I knew a while ago that I would not renew my lease when it expired this year.

Ironically, business is strong so Relish is not going away entirely. We'll return to our adventurous roots to offer one-of-a-kind experiences at partner locations—scenic local farms and wineries—and other custom events. And over time I hope to add other types of experiences that build on our love for and relationships with local producers, makers and artisans, such as Sonoma County culinary excursions

To celebrate our amazing run we're hosting a series of "Best of 15 Years at the Relish Culinary Center" events in March and early April with some of our favorite chefs:

March 9: Grossman's Noshery Supper with Chef Mark Stark
March 21: Creative Chocolate Menu with Chefs Jeff & Susan Mall
March 23: Spring Supper with Chef John Ash
NEW DATE March 26: "Season" Menu with Chef Tracey Shepos Cenami
March 30: Paella Party with Chef Gerard Nebesky

These are all hands-on classes which means participants will hang out with these engaging and notable chefs while cooking under their guidance. We'll create lovely new memories along with a hearty, delicious dinner, sharing the communal table to feast on the just-created meal with specially selected wines. I am hopeful that these classes are popular and sell out quickly, so register soon!

As I sort through old photos and menus in preparation for these "Best of" classes, I've thoroughly enoyed the flashbacks and memories from so many fantastic events, including classes from the first 4½ years before the Center. (I'll be sharing some on Facebook and Instagram so please follow Relish if you don't already.)

I can't thank you enough for supporting this crazy almost-20-year adventure to inspire home cooks, support local chefs and producers, and highlight our incomparable Sonoma County foodshed.

Here's to the next chapter!
