Andrea Mugnaini shares her wood fired oven techniques developed over two decades of cooking in wood fired pizza ovens. Join in the fun and excitement of wood fired cooking at one of our ideally located wood fired cooking schools.
Our classes feature proper wood fired oven fundamentals essential to successful cooking and a complete meal cooked in the pizza oven. Class sizes are limited to provide the expert advice and personal attention you need to learn how to get the most out of your oven.
Mugnaini’s showroom and headquarters is located in Watsonville, California on the Monterey Coast. Ovens and accessories are on display and visitors are welcome Monday–Friday 8:00–5:00. We offer free consulting and plan review by appointment. The showroom features a working kitchen with 3 live ovens. Please call in advance for demonstrations or Saturday appointments.
The Healdsburg cooking school is located on Andrea Mugnaini’s vineyard in Alexander Valley in Sonoma Wine Country. Classes are held in a beautifully appointed cooking facility in a renovated farm house with six indoor and outdoor wood fired ovens, an herb garden, fruit trees, vegetable garden and acres of wine grapes. From the moment you arrive and are greeted by Andrea and her staff, you are immersed in a culinary experience designed to inspire creativity and confidence as you master the use of a wood fired oven. Deluxe accommodations at Hotel Healdsburg, private transportation to and from the cooking school, and a host of amenities make it easy to indulge all of your senses in the pleasures of the wine country while learning the art of wood fired cooking firsthand from Andrea Mugnaini.
Andrea Mugnaini hosts week-long cooking classes in Tuscany, Italy during the fall harvest season. These hands-on cooking classes are unlike any other – offering a complete immersion into the culture and cuisine of one of Italy’s most popular regions. Guests stay at a country hotel and take educational side trips to enhance their cooking experience. Class sizes are small, the fun lasts all day and the experience lasts a lifetime. Please note that in 2014 we will be bringing Tuscany to Healdsburg via a series of cooking classes at Cucina Mugnaini in Sonoma County, but will return to Tuscany in 2015.
