Napa, while world renowned for its wine, is also known for its deep appreciation of nature and the authentic wine country cuisine. Cooking with Julie is an excellent way to cultivate the senses and discover the edible side of Napa.
Julie offers intimate tours of the Oxbow Public Market in downtown Napa, as well as private wine tasting and cooking classes designed around the signature foods, herbs, and meats of the local region.
The Oxbow Market Tour and Cooking Class with Julie begins at the market with a meeting of local purveyors, browsing and sampling the produce, olive oil, and artisan cheeses. Julie will introduce you to the local purveyors and chat with them about their vegetables and fruits, meats and cheeses, fish, and more.
Then you’ll select the best items and learn how to cook your bounty to highlight the flavor and texture. You’ll also have time to buy some to bring home or set aside for a picnic during your stay. You’ll visit a winery for a private tasting to select the perfect wine to pair with the meal, and then on to the kitchen where you’ll don aprons and turn your selections into a delectable wine country feast!
