About Chef Sasha
Sasha is a professionally trained pastry chef and adventurous home cook, who focuses on the seasons to create locally inspired dishes. She supplemented her income while in college by working in restaurants on the savory side, and was inspired to attend the Professional Pastry program at Tante Marie’s Cooking School in San Francisco. She’s been immersed in the Bay Area restaurant scene ever since, working at Bay Wolf, Garibaldi’s, Café Rouge, and others. Always at home in the classroom, she returned to her alma mater where she was the instructor for the Professional Pastry program for several years. The act of cooking brings her joy, be it choosing produce at its peak, imagining how both sweet and savory ingredients will complement each other, or knowing how good food brings us together and nurtures great conversation and living.
Indulge your recipe book and your taste buds with Silverado Cooking School’s hands-on cooking classes in Napa. In our state-of-the-art kitchen, students will use some of the finest equipment available along with fresh, seasonal ingredients from our own farm to prepare delicious meals.
During our Napa cooking classes, you do the cooking under the guidance of a professionally trained chef. After a brief introduction, you will be given various seasonal recipes to prepare. As the dishes are completed everyone will come together to enjoy the meal that they have just prepared.
All classes are hands-on unless otherwise noted and geared towards adults and teens 16+ (with parent consent unless accompanied by an adult). Occasionally, we offer demonstration classes, which are a great way to learn new techniques and observe how to properly prepare regional cuisine.
