CANTINE winepubCANTINE winepub
At CANTINE we offer an extensive selection of wine and beer sourced from right around the corner, throughout the west and across the pond. We think wine should be approachable and fun – not pretentious or complicated. And the same goes for craft beer, which can be overwhelming and mysterious to the uninitiated and even to those in the know.
To live well is to eat well and to live well is to drink well. Ideas that we committed to when putting together our menus. Honest food prepared simply and with respect to the ingredients; wine that is nuanced and balanced – wines that express the grapes from which they are made and the terroir where they are grown; beer crafted using hand selected ingredients, specifically picked for distinct flavor characteristics in mind and brewed to be flavorful, quality beer.
Drop by. Eat, drink, savor – enjoy good conversation and linger over a great varietal. Sit at a table with close friends and family. Share a story, sip a pint, break bread… and stay for a while.

Chaine d’Or VineyardsChaine d’Or VineyardsNot Open to the Public
Chaine d’Or is a small winery in Woodside, and we are celebrating our 30th anniversary this year.
In 1985 Anne stood on the steps of the Redwood City courthouse and made a bid for a small property that was being sold in foreclosure and which bordered our home. That was the start of Chaine d’Or Vineyards. As soon as we acquired the land we began the process of clearing it of the overgrown poison oak and weeds. After the clearing we hired a bulldozer and deep ripped the hillside, followed by planting a cover crop of PurpleVetch to improve the soil. The next year we turned under the vetch and planted the grapes, primarily Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon together with smaller quantities of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot to be blended into the red wine. We installed the irrigation system, and put up the trellis, and went through a few trials calming a neighbor who didn’t like the look of a “naked” vineyard.
After a couple of years we realized that we really were going to be able to grow grapes, and quite a few of them. That thought then was the realization that we would need a little winery, and so we built one by expanding our home and tucking it underneath the living room.
Much in the tradition of the small European vigneron, we grow grapes and make wine primarily for local people and the occasional visitor who happens to find us. And, in the same tradition, word of our quality product has spread via the – ahem – grapevine. We’ve been winning awards and gaining in popularity. And for most of our time we’ve been doing all of our own work. Anne has been the winemaker and Jerry has been driving the tractor.
But in 2007 Paul and Stefania Romero joined the Chaine d’Or family and took over all of the management and operations of the effort. They continued until 2015 when Nicolas Vonderheyden took over as Manager and Vigneron.

International Culinary CenterInternational Culinary Center
Credentials, Confidence, Connections
In 1984, Dorothy Cann Hamilton founded The French Culinary Institute with a singular goal in mind: to provide superlative French culinary training in New York City in an immersive six-month program. Inspired by the technical school her father created and the premier vocational schools she visited in Europe, she accomplished what many deemed impossible. After 30 years, we are now the International Culinary Center. We count Jacques Pépin, André Soltner and Jacques Torres among our deans and our 15,000+ alumni include Wylie Dufresne, David Chang, Christina Tosi and Bobby Flay, who graduated in the very first class. With locations in New York’s Soho, Northern California and Parma, Italy, and programs that range fromProfessional Culinary Arts, Professional Pastry Arts and Cake Techniques & Designto Italian Culinary Experience, Spanish Culinary Arts and Intensive Sommelier Training, ICC is now the global expert in culinary and wine education.
You Won’t Just Learn to Cook; You’ll Learn to Succeed
ICC students learn the equivalent of a two-year internship in as little as six months. Often imitated but never duplicated, our Total ImmersionSM teaching method offers intensive instruction and puts you in the kitchen from the very first day. Right from the start, you work with professional equipment, learning and developing essential techniques through cumulative practice. The curriculum is rooted in the fundamentals of French cooking, building blocks from which all Western cuisines can be explored.
The rest of our highly accomplished deans include chefs José Andrés, Cesare Casella, Alain Sailhac, Emily Luchetti, David Kinch, award-winning journalist Alan Richman and master sommeliers Larry Stone and Scott Carney. Under their direction, our highly-trained chef-instructors–expressly trained to help individual students succeed–provide a first-rate education designed for real-world achievement.
Small Class Sizes and Solid Support
With 19 professional kitchens in New York, and 9 in California, ICC’s generous kitchen space means individual workstations for each student. Our low student-to-teacher ratio, a hallmark of ICC, offers support not found at other schools. A substantial library, job and internship placement, and an extensive Chef Demo program—including big names like Dominique Ansel, Seamus Mullen, Francois Payard, John Besh and Massimo Bottura—enhance the educational experience. Nearby housing, student advisors and financial aid specialists help students achieve their dreams, with the school’s 91% graduation rate a testament to our commitment to success.
Career students receive a diploma in three areas: Culinary Arts, Pastry Arts andInternational Bread Baking. In addition to The Italian Culinary Experience andSpanish Studies programs, advanced studies include Intensive Sommelier Training (a remarkable 11 master sommeliers are on staff and the Master Court of Sommeliers test is conducted on-site, with an outstanding pass rate), Culinary Entrepreneurship, Cake Techniques & Design and Advanced Chef Training for professionals. Most programs offer day and evening classes with several start dates throughout the year. Culinary Arts culminates with real restaurant experience in the award-winning L’Ecole in New York and externships in first-rate restaurants in Northern California.
We also offer an extensive variety of classes for home cooks and professionals looking to brush up on their skills. Classes take place in the same pristine facilities and offer hands-on training by the same chef-instructors who teach our career students.
Beyond the Classroom
The ICC experience reaches far beyond the kitchen; set in the culinary capital of New York City’s Soho and California’s lush Silicon Valley, you’ll have access to some of the very best restaurants, vineyards and chefs in the world. Students of our Spanish program can conclude their training with a week in Spain, while those in the authentic Italian Culinary Experience spend more than three months in Italy through a special ICC arrangement with the Italian government.
Unique Farm-to-Table Opportunity
Those looking to get to the roots of ingredients can enroll in our innovativeProfessional Culinary Arts + Farm-to-Table course. In addition to field trips throughout, New York students conclude with the week-long program created by ICC grad Dan Barber, his staff and Stone Barns Center’s farmers. Professional Culinary Arts Immersion + Farm-to-Table students in California enjoy field trips and a week created by Karen Karp, one of the ambassadors of the “good food” movement, that explores farming, production, distribution, social and environmental sustainability and policy.
If college is in your future, ICC students can transfer as many as 60 credits toward a Bachelor’s or Associate’s Degree at The New School, a highly respected NYC university known for its prestigious Parsons School for Design and Mannes College for Music.
Excellence and Innovation
ICC has been recognized with multiple awards and honors, including the International Association of Culinary Professionals School of Excellence in the professional training category in 2014, 2012 and 2010 (awarded every two years) and the coveted School of Excellence Award from the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges in 2012 and 2013. Never resting on our laurels, we constantly seek to improve by integrating new technologies and industry trends into the classic curriculum without losing sight of our core principles. Both Professional Culinary Arts and Professional Pastry Arts include an emphasis on locality, sustainability and nutrition as well as training in cutting-edge techniques such as sous-vide and hydrocolloids.
Distinguished alumni include Dan Barber of Blue Hill, Josh Skenes of Michelin-rated Saison, Hooni Kim of Michelin-rated Danji and TV chef Daisy Martinez. Our graduates work in just about every facet of the food industry including television, publishing, food styling, business, print and digital media, catering, management and, of course, restaurants.
