Founded by Napa Valley chef, vintner, tv host and author, Michael Chiarello, NapaStyle showcases an eclectic mix of handcrafted and exclusive home goods and artisanal specialty foods that celebrate all things cooking, entertaining, wine, garden and home. Michael expresses his passion for seasonal and sustainable living through his television shows and cookbooks, and his uniquely designed NapaStyle products, such as his artisan-made salami, salts & spreads, reclaimed barnwood furniture, vintage flatware & antiques, and specialty barware & tabletop. All can be found in the NapaStyle retail stores, online, and in its catalog.
Food comes alive for me when it tells a story, and nearly every dish I make has one - of a childhood hike with my family to forage for mushrooms, of an afternoon spent canning tomatoes with neighbors. When I cook or eat those dishes, the flavors remind me of those wonderful experiences and the friends and family who helped prepare them.
I created NapaStyle to share these stories and the rich, uncomplicated lifestyle that the Napa Valley inspires - and to encourage you to start your own traditions around the best of every season. Whether you live in the wine country, at the shore, in the mountains, or in the city, there are great flavors all around you - if you know where to look.
For the many people who've eaten at my restaurants or watched my cooking shows and asked where to find the California olive oils, organic Arborio rice, fresh grape juices, fruit-infused vinegars, spices, and cooking tools I use, we've gathered them right here in our online store and in our print catalog. Since we launched that first collection of kitchen and pantry favorites, we've grown to also celebrate patio and garden, dining room and living room - your entire home - because to me, "flavor" is a five-sense experience that enriches every aspect of our lives.
If you're a home chef, I'll try to provide you with the very best pantry items and kitchen tools available - along with recipes, advice, encouragement, and inspiration to gather friends and family around the table for memorable meals. If you're a home decorator, maybe we can provide you with the table itself! My love of entertaining and my 25 years as a professional chef have informed and inspired my passion for beautiful home and garden decor. Much of what you'll see in our collection is designed and developed by me and a talented team of merchandisers, chefs, artists and craftspeople.
A few of our ideas. A few of your ideas. Put them together and create some new recipes and traditions in your home - and be sure to share and celebrate these new flavors with family and friends. That's living NapaStyle!
