Napa Valley Cooking School (not the CIA)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I was looking at the CIA in St Helena, but it's too expensive. Someone here mentioned Napa Valley Cooking School in passing, but I can't seem to find very much here about these forums. It's $20k for nine months, which seems like a good value, and was apparently started by some former CIA instructors. Looking at their curriculum they cover A LOT in nine months. I'm wondering, has anyone here attended this school? What are your overall opinions? How can they cover so much in just nine months? Do they speed through every topic, a week at a time?

It was me that mentioned it. One of my best friends went there and yes it is a fast course but they focused on fine dining. By buddy went to an internship at a 2 Michelin star place after school and went on to stages at the French laundry and meadow wood after that. They are very hooked into the restaurants in that area. I would suggest getting ahold of the people that run it and talk to them about it. They can probly get you in touch with a few people that have gone and they can also break down what and how they teach
