Napa Farmers’ Market Lunch Class ~ Chef Frances
May 31 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$225.00
Take in the sights and sounds of a Napa Valley morning by exploring the colorful and pristine offerings at our local Farmers’ Market. Meeting at the market gives guests the opportunity to experience the finest and freshest produce and products from the best local purveyors, right from their hands. The Chef will lead guests on a culinary journey to seek out the perfect ingredients for the lunch they’ll soon prepare. After exploring the market, guests will head to the kitchen to transform their selected ingredients into a delicious three-course lunch that they will prepare and enjoy together.
Everyone will receive a Silverado Cooking School logo shopping bag, apron & a set of the recipes to take home!
*Please note, students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the farmers’ market and the cooking school.
