Excellent teaching chef (Jill Hough), excellent assistants, excellent meal. Only negative was lack of communication from the school after reserving our place in the class. I had to call / leave messages several times in the days prior to class since we had not heard from them since I paid for the class almost 3 months previously. Better communication with... More

If your looking for a lovely spot for a wedding, this is it. There is an inner courtyard that is perfect for a small wedding. Although it was cool outside, there are heaters that keep away the chill The dinner was very good and prepared by the staff and students .

Best way to break the ice between colleagues and new comers! Very well organized cooking class, we all felt like chefs and all the dishes we prepared came out perfect! They gave us the receipes, so I look forward preparing those dishes at home.

Attended a wedding here in August, just before the earthquake. While this is a culinary school, the outdoor setting provides a comfortable, intimate setting with all the charm you'd expect in Sonoma. The seating area is shaded, there is an outdoor bar and cozy fireplace. The banquet hall is nice while being unpretentious. As you'd expect, the food is delicious,... More

We had a fabulous cooking class this past Saturday at Ramekins in Sonoma. We had heard it was wonderful, but exceeded all expectations. Great chef, teaching us Mexican Grill, really a gourmet class. We had lunch afterward in their beautiful event dining room. The staff, chef and food was exquisite and we had so much fun. Really reasonably priced for... More

I was expecting to have a more well-rounded experience, learning how to do more than just one thing (running pasta through a pasta machine). Maybe the size of our group dictated what we were able to do, but I had anticipated rotating through stations. The food was good and the staff was helpful, but the dining area was rather cold...

The past weekend, I attended the cooking class, "Winning Ways with Chicken" with Linda Carucci. It was a fun class, and I wouldn't hesitate taking another cooking class by Ramekins. The class began with Linda demonstrating a few chicken recipes, such as how to roast a chicken, and how to butterfly a chicken breast. After the 45 minute demonstration/explanation of... More

I was SO excited to find out there were a few openings for a Dim Sum cooking class at Ramekins while we were planning to be in Sonoma for my 40th birthday trip. Cooking is a real love of mine, and we had heard great things about Ramekins. I will say, the space is fabulous, and it would be a... More

Ramekins came under new management several years ago and it has been transformed into a beautiful world class cooking school and small hotel. The new owners completely redid the landscaping and rooms. The new courtyard with wood burning oven is beautiful - you could be in Italy it is SO lovely. The staff is great, the location - is perfect... More

If you are a fan of cooking shows you can be a star in your own Top Chef experience at Ramekins School in Sonoma. I personally prefer the Demonstration classes. I actually learn more than doing a hands on class. When I can sit in the evening and watch a meal come together prepared by a top chef I can... More
