Our Cooking Classes offer a truly hands-on experience in a commercial kitchen allowing each student to create Italian cuisine themselves to make at home. Our classes are not a “demonstration”.

The classes are held pretty much every other Saturday, and the fun typically starts at 10:30am at Solare (10am for some classes) with an Italian-style coffee of your choice and a pastry. Italian wine is served for students interested in “cooking with wine”.

The Classes do sell out fast due to the limited size. Please call 619-270-9670 or email us to make a reservation for a Class:


<a id="Solare-Silver-Oak-Wine-Dinner"></a>Silver Oak!  The Legend ~ Wine Dinner @ Solare

November 13 - Silver Oak! The Legend ~ Wine Dinner @ Solare

Silver Oak is clearly a legend of California wine making. Everything started in 1972 when Ray Duncan and Justin Meyer teamed up to create their first vintage wine (Alexander Valley). Their strong initial focus was pure cabernet sauvignon and for the Silver Oak brand, that is all they continue to make. And it is famous across the world for its high quality and consistency. The Duncan family added the name, Twomey, to their portfolio to include the varietals of merlot, pinot noir, and sauvignon blanc. We will be tasting these wines during the dinner, of course.

This dinner is led personally by Quelene Slattery of the Silver Oak Team. $125/person for 5 select Silver Oak wines including their Napa Valley and Alexander Valley cabernet sauvignon bottlings. The 4-course tasting dinner is designed by Exec Chef Filippo Piccini. 6:45pm Dinner ~ 6:15pm Reception with Quelene.
