Classes and Tours

Go behind the scenes of Santa Barbara’s food, wine, and beer culture. Book a tour, take a class, or simply meet the makers to find out what makes the foodie scene in The American Riviera® one of a kind.

Who doesn’t enjoy a little VIP service every now and again? Food tours in Santa Barbara treat you to front-of-the-line service and a taste of local flavor. Along the way, learn about the history of each venue and walk away with a full belly. If you prefer sipping to noshing, take a wine tour through the Santa Ynez Valley, where you’ll become a true oenophile.

Spend a day learning a thing or two in and out of the kitchen with a chef-led cooking class that includes a trip to various farmers markets, where you’ll pick up the ingredients you’ll need before you get to the chopping block.

With hands-on classes and tours, you’ll soon discover why the likes of Iron Chef and cookbook author Cat Cora — along with the late Julia Child — chose to call Santa Barbara home.

Cheers and Bon Appetit!
