INSTRUCTOR(S) - John Sarich * Culinary Director
DATE & TIME - Aug 8 / 6:30 p.m.
DESCRIPTION - John’s innovative approach to matching food and wine reflects his unique culinary background. At Chateau Ste. Michelle, John conducts cooking classes, wine and food tastings, wine dinners, and special events—all designed to further people’s enjoyment and understanding of wine and food. John joined Chateau Ste. Michelle as a winery guide in 1976. His incredible knowledge and enthusiasm for wine and food quickly became apparent, and before long he was teaching cooking classes in the Chateau’s historic Manor House.
In 1980, John took a hiatus from the winery to pursue his dream of owning a restaurant. He founded Seattle’s highly acclaimed Adriatica Restaurant and later opened Dalmacija Ristoran. After returning to Chateau Ste. Michelle as Culinary Director in 1990, John hosted the Emmy-nominated cooking show Taste of the Northwest. John currently hosts the internationally syndicated TV show Best of Taste: Travels With John Sarich. For John, educating others about the joy of wine and food is not simply a job, it’s his driving passion.
