At Saga Hill, sommelier Kyle Bille calls upon his training at the International Sommelier Guild, which equipped him with the gastronomic know-how to get cooks of all levels whipping up expert edibles. The three-hour Intensive Cooking class takes students through six courses, preparing a multifaceted meal accented with a variety of Dionysian delights. Learners warm up their pans to practice ahi-tuna tartare, sidled up next to glasses of chenin blanc. The class culminates in a sit-down six-course meal, allowing students to sample their culinary handiwork.

Handmade artisan chocolate truffles paired with malbec draw the class to a sweet close. The staff keeps class sizes manageable throughout to avoid brutal fights over who gets to lick out the mixing bowl, and can arrange for gluten-free and vegetarian substitutions upon request at the time of registration.

When she’s not hosting radio shows, serving meals at local shelters, or blogging for Minneapolis St. Paul magazine's Foodie File, Le Cordon Bleu–trained chef Marianne Miller helms Saga Hill Cooking & Events. She describes her style as "audacious, yet feminine," adding, "my preparations are often bold, but with a light-handed approach that brings out the natural flavors in each dish." Alongside her staff, she leads culinary classes and parties that shy from incorporating fad kitchen gadgets or diets. Instead, their goal is to teach practical, science-based cooking techniques that can help students prepare simple meals, gourmet treats, or decadent brown-bag lunches.
