Silverado Cooking School

We are currently offering private virtual cooking classes via Zoom. Email us for more info:

In person classes postponed until further notice.

Cooking should be fun! It doesn’t need to be expensive, stressful or overly complicated. Think of what we do at the Silverado Cooking School as less of a “cooking class” and more of a culinary experience because, let’s face it, “classes” can be boring. We want you to join us for 3-4 hours of fun, cooking, good food, awesome wine and, yes, we hope you learn a thing or two along the way.

It doesn’t matter whether you only use the microwave or have cooked your way through Larousse, we offer a variety of courses for every ability, preference and palate whether a home cook or an aspiring professional.

Join professionally trained chefs at the Silverado Cooking School in Napa for an interactive, hands-on epicurean adventure. You will be cooking with seasonal produce harvested from our own farm that very day paired with the best ingredients from around the Napa Valley. Learn basic technique or participate in advanced classes in our incredible kitchen, located on the beautiful Silverado Trail.

Learn the finer points of cooking in a spectacular and congenial kitchen, filled with all kinds of top-of-the line equipment used in the finest professional kitchens. Then sit down to the amazing gourmet meal your group has created!

Instruction covers a broad scope of technique, plus will go home with a selection of creative recipes that use fresh, flavorful ingredients, along with the confidence to pull it off in your own kitchen.

Whether you simply can’t make it to our regularly scheduled classes or you’re wondering what to do in Napa, our private events are a great way to connect, learn, and have fun with your friends and family. At Silverado School, we can schedule an event for groups of up to 24 people on almost any time or day, 7 days a week.

While classes generally run four-hours and feature four courses, we will custom tailor to your needs, and can do an abbreviated, all-day, or multi-day event for your group. We’ll also customize the menu—from simple to more complex—and we will happily put together a wine tasting experience to complement your menu.

Spend a day bonding with your bachelorettes while you learn to make desserts paired with robust Napa Valley wines or simply learn to cook new dishes and bond with your family over a shared experience. No matter the reason, our private Napa cooking classes are sure to leave a good taste in your mouth.

Need corporate team building ideas? Build camaraderie with your existing co-workers or get to know new additions to your office during Silverado’s team building cooking classes in Napa. Through Culinary Team Building, we teach skills and insights for achieving better results in your organization through team interaction away from the workplace. Your team will work together to prepare a four-course meal over a four-hour period. These events are custom tailored to meet your needs.

Would you like to know who has the most discerning palate or nose in your group? Chef Malcolm will put together a wine tasting experience to compliment your menu that will give someone in your office the opportunity to boast about his or her abilities.
