CIA food wine weekendThe Culinary Institute of America (CIA) is teaming up with Time Inc.'s to host a festival series for food enthusiasts across the United States. Attendees will "eat like a local" at the opening reception, explore current food trends in hands-on cooking sessions, create popular global street foods, learn about up-and-coming California wine regions, and enjoy a dinner showcasing California's bounty.

The inaugural FOOD & WINE Weekend with the CIA will be held February 16–18, 2018 at The Culinary Institute of America at Copia in Napa, CA. The three-day event will be the ultimate gastronomic getaway filled with tastings, hands-on cooking lessons, educational seminars, and much more. It is the perfect pairing of FOOD & WINE's renowned authority with the CIA's unparalleled excellence in the education arena.

The event also marks the opening of the Hestan Teaching Kitchen at the CIA at Copia, which features state-of-the-art commercial kitchen equipment. The kitchen will serve as home base for the CIA at Copia's food enthusiast and family cooking classes, as well as foodservice industry-focused programs led by the college's consulting and strategic initiatives groups.

Attendees will "eat like a local" at the opening reception, explore current food trends in hands-on cooking sessions, create popular global street foods, learn about up-and-coming California wine regions, and enjoy a dinner showcasing California's bounty. The event will culminate with the CIA Chef Best Brunch Battle, in which chefs Sandy Sauter, Hilary Sullivan, and Josh Anderson will race to create their signature brunch dishes and beverages for attendees to enjoy.

"The FOOD & WINE Weekend with the CIA brings together all of the elements that make for a compelling culinary educational experience: talented chefs and wine experts sharing their expertise in the state-of-the-art kitchen in one of our favorite places on earth," said FOOD & WINE Editor-in-Chief Hunter Lewis. "We are thrilled to partner with the CIA on this dynamic event."

There will be two additional FOOD & WINE Weekends with the CIA in 2018: July 13–15 and October 19–21.
