3 days | 2 nights
What you may have seen on Food Network or in the movie Sideways won't compare with the reality of what you will find on your special culinary getaway - guided culinary shopping, cooking class, farmers' market foray, an eclectic blend of agritourism venues and specialty purveyors who invite you to sample their products.
On your second day you will meet producers, learn how to shop for top quality ingredients, and how to use them to create delicious home-cooked meals. Your day begins early with a tour of the Santa Barbara Farmers Market, and then you will roll up your sleeves and cook alongside the chef (Food & Wine Editor for Food & Home Magazine) as you learn new techniques that will empower you to recreate these wonderful dishes at home.
After an exhilarating day, you will sit down with a small group (your new foodie friends) to enjoy a five-course, gourmet meal that you helped prepare. Enjoy a wonderful "wine tasting" brunch, and then spend a leisurely Sunday exploring the many shops that are just steps from your hotel in downtown Santa Barbara. You will want to be sure and scout out places to investigate during your return visit to this magical destination.
