The Culinary Institute of America Expands Food Enthusiast Offerings to its Greystone Campus in the Heart of California's Napa Valley

"Saturdays at the CIA" Offer Food Enthusiasts the First-Ever Hands-On Food and Wine Programs at the West Coast Campus of the World's Premier Culinary College

St. Helena, CA,. The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone has introduced its first-ever weekend classes for food enthusiasts. "Saturdays at the CIA" will offer a wide array of hands-on cooking and wine exploration classes for Napa Valley visitors with no previous professional training. Each of the two-hour classes&emdash;taught by the same expert faculty that has made the CIA the world's premier culinary college&emdash;costs $75 per person.


With titles ranging from "Hot Latin Cooking" to "Street Foods of the Middle East," these unique hands-on cooking classes take students on a culinary journey while creating dishes inspired by global cuisine. Class sizes are small&emdash;just 12 students&emdash;so all participants have the opportunity to work one-on-one with the chefs of the CIA. Over the course of the two hours, students will work in teams to prepare a tasting for their fellow classmates to enjoy.

Saturdays at the CIA wine exploration classes introduce students to the world of viticulture in our state-of-the-art Rudd Center for Professional Wine Studies. Instructors guide students in tasting a number of grape varieties and exploring the diversity of wine regions throughout the world. Participants will also learn helpful tips when tasting, buying, and serving wine for their friends and family.

Students who enroll in Saturdays at the CIA can get even more out of their trip to campus by making a lunch or dinner reservation at The Wine Spectator Greystone Restaurant. Guests who make a reservation before class will receive a seat at a communal table with their classmates and enjoy a special fixed-price menu for only $19 for lunch or $29 for dinner. All Saturdays at the CIA participants will also receive a 10% discount on any purchases from the college's Spice Islands Marketplace.

Too busy to visit the CIA on a Saturday? The new food enthusiast offerings also include a limited number of exclusive Sunday classes taught by Chef John Ash that focus on how to pair food and wine, for just $95 per person.

A schedule of all the new food enthusiast courses can be found at www.ciachef.edu/SaturdaysatGreystone. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 707-967-2320.
