My sister and I attended Julie's cooking class on March 7 and we loved every moment!! We learned so much from learning how to shop for fruit and vegetables, different cheeses, salt, pepper, olive oil, wine and so much more. We cooked our meal at her home and had such a wonderful time preparing the meal with the other students.... More

Crispy Prawns with Lemon Salt-which created a discussion on different types of salt, regions they come from and uses-depending on the salt. Favas with Morcilla Sausage, Manchego Salad, Mussels...

This was part of a charity auction item we 'won'. I do love cooking, farmers markets and it was a nice break from visiting wineries. I love wandering through farmers markets and we got to visit two. Julie clearly walks the talk as she was greeted by name at each stand we visited. Farmers Market duties completed, we headed to... More

This is a great activity for couples. My wife and I were joined by three other couples for our day-long adventure with Julie. First, Julie is warm and friendly, and well qualified to teach cooking. She started us at the Napa Farmer's Market where we went from booth to booth, chatting, tasting, and learning about the local produce and farms.... More
