Healdsburg, CA (PRWEB) June 4, 2008
Relish Culinary Adventures has opened the Relish Culinary Center in downtown Healdsburg in the Sonoma County wine country. The Center features a teaching kitchen that enables Relish to expand the number and variety of culinary events it offers, complementing the successful "roving" cooking classes it has produced at artisan vineyards and wineries, sustainable farms and elegant wine country homes since 2003.
The Relish Culinary Center features a 1,000 square foot teaching kitchen in a modern farmhouse style that echoes the agricultural heritage of Sonoma County. Reflecting Relish's commitment to using ingredients from sustainable sources, the center is outfitted with eco-friendly products such as white oak cabinetry crafted locally from FSC-certified hardwood, multi-purpose bamboo tables, and low VOC paint, wood finishes and floor sealants.
Relish has partnered with Meredith Inc.'s Traditional Home magazine to outfit the teaching kitchen with state-of-the-art, energy-efficient appliances from DCS by Fisher and Paykel, colorful Country Floors backsplash tile, a Thermador wine refrigerator and Sunbrella window coverings. An outdoor kitchen--featuring a Mugnaini wood-fired oven, DCS gas grill and patio heaters, and Gloster teak furniture--is ideal for al fresco events most of the year. Additional local sponsors include bath and kitchen tile from Sonoma Tilemakers, stone and granite counters from Surface Art Countertops, and sustainably crafted kitchen cabinets designed by the Green Home Center. An audio-visual system with wireless microphones and high definition closed-circuit television ensures clear sound and vision for all guests. The center will accommodate up to thirty-six guests indoors and twenty guests outdoors.
In addition to hands-on and demonstration cooking classes, the Relish Culinary Center is the perfect venue for private cooking parties and corporate events, winemaker dinners and other winery-related events. Relish is working closely with Hotel Healdsburg and other Healdsburg-area lodging to offer unique food and wine tours and other event services for visiting corporate and private groups.
The Relish Culinary Center also features a commercial kitchen and business office.
