Refugio Cooking School

Located in the bucolic heart of California’s Central Coast wine country, Refugio is a new venue for learning about and enjoying great food and wine.

Learn new cooking and entertaining skills from prominent chefs, cheese-makers, and farmers, all aided and abetted by owner and local resident Brigit Binns, the nationally-known author of myriad best-selling cookbooks, many of them for Williams-Sonoma.

Relax under a towering eucalyptus tree and gaze out at gnarled oaks, olive trees, and grazing horses, while sipping local wines and nibbling on inspiring dishes created from local ingredients.

Savor the laughter and conviviality that are the natural by-products of living and cooking deliberately.
