Hotel Healdsburg is celebrating the grand opening of Relish Culinary Center in the idyllic Sonoma County town by offering special events and classes for hotel guests and meeting planners in conjunction with the new state-of-the-art demonstration cooking facility.
Relish Culinary Adventures has long been the only "roving" culinary program that brings together talented chefs and fabulous cuisine at a variety of locations for hands-on and demonstration cooking experiences. The May opening of Relish Culinary Center's eco-friendly teaching kitchen across the street from Hotel Healdsburg marks the progam's expansion and further establishes Healdsburg as a premier food and wine destination.
Hotel Healdsburg will continue its long-standing relationship with Relish Culinary by collaborating on special events at the new Center, as well as offering private cooking parties for groups and customized corporate team building classes that capitalize on and introduce visitors to the region's food and wine.
The inaugural cooking event at Relish Culinary Center will be a technique cooking class led by renowned master chef Charlie Palmer of Hotel Healdsburg's Dry Creek Kitchen restaurant. Food lovers can expand their culinary education as Chef Palmer demonstrates rendering and searing techniques to prepare a dinner menu that features delicious and easy-to-reproduce-at-home dishes. The sumptuous dinner, including Bacon-wrapped Scallops with Creamy Mascarpone Polenta and Roasted Pepper Salad and Spice-crusted Duck Breast with Toasted Pine Nut Couscous, Campari Rhubarb and Orange-Scented Fennel, will be paired with local wines. Hotel Healdsburg guests can book the class as part of an overnight package that includes a copy of Chef Palmer's latest cookbook "Practical Guide to the New American Kitchen" and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the School Garden Network.
Hotel Healdsburg is also offering a special Relish rate through July 31st for all Relish Culinary Center class participants that stay at the luxury hotel.
