Kitchen Collective has opened its doors in Napa, introducing a gastronomic-focused private club concept to wine country.
An urban cooking club, Kitchen Collective allows members to share its fully-stocked state-of-the-art kitchen with personal coaching from a professional chef.
Based on the traditional Basque Gastronomic Societies, Kitchen Collective helps its members create the meals and dinner parties by partnering with the club’s professional chef and working with tools and ingredients otherwise unavailable to expand their culinary horizons while their guests and other members can enjoy the other social aspects of the club in its dining rooms, lounges, and lush central courtyard.
“Kitchen Collective is all about giving our members and their guests the tools to create what they haven’t been able to before,” said founder Garret Murphy. “We want everyone here to explore new tastes and techniques.”
While members are in the kitchen with one of their guests and cooking alongside the club’s chef, the rest of their party is able to communicate with them through a live video feed in the dining room while sipping from the club’s wine selection.
