Meet Chef Julie who is passionate about teaching cooking to serious foodies.
Classically trained by some of the world’s most accomplished French master chefs, she has worked at the White House, collaborated with world-renowned chefs, opened her own restaurant and operated her own catering business. Julie has been teaching cooking for more then 25 years and is a Certified Culinary Professional (CCP ) by the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
Guests on the ‘Napa Harvest 2016: Gourmet Food & Wine Adventure’ will spend a morning with Chef Julie at the Napa Farmer’s Market and Oxbow Market. Napa Valley cuisine reflects a deep appreciation for nature and its seasons. Julie will guide us through the markets introducing local produce, meats, cheeses, spices and artisan foods. As she does this, she will purchase ingredients for our hands-on cooking class showcasing the abundant produce and legendary Napa Valley artisan products.
Back in the kitchen, we’ll learn culinary techniques and prepare a specially selected menu at Julie’s direction – with a glass of wine in hand, of course!
We will then join Chef Julie and savor a fresh taste of the Napa Valley in our own wine country feast!
