The Culinary Institute of America, St. Helena, CA

For couples who love to cook together and have a strong desire to hone their culinary skills, a weekend (or even a week) in beautiful St. Helena, Calif., at the Culinary Institute of America is a perfect getaway. The CIA offers an array of boot camp classes for couples on a variety of topics like French cuisine, Asian cuisine, and Mediterranean cuisine that explore the ingredients, flavor profiles, and cooking techniques of the different regions. Given that the CIA grounds are only minutes from wine country, couples have the options of staying in St. Helena, Napa, or neighboring Yountville. Southbridge Napa Valley is located right in St. Helena and offers a dining and wine package for two that includes an evening’s accommodations as well as a bottle of Merryvale Winery cabernet sauvignon and a box of chocolates upon arrival.
