Food & Wine spent the weekend in Napa, where we partnered with the Culinary Institute of America to host a three-day immersive food and wine experience—packed with epic tastings, local flavors, hands-on cooking demos, and quality time with some of our editors as well as the region's top chefs. Here's what happened (spoiler: it was delicious).
