Executive Chef

Brian Streeter

Brian Streeter has been highlighting the world-class wines of Cakebread Cellars with seasonal, product-driven menus since 1989. He leads hands-on cooking classes at the winery and manages a team that develops wine-pairing recipes and prepares meals for events. Brian also spearheads the annual American Harvest Workshop at our winery’s Rutherford location, a four-day “boot camp” for chefs, sommeliers, press and consumers. He is the co-author of the Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Cookbook and The Cakebread Cellars American Harvest Cookbook (Ten Speed Press).

A graduate of the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, VT, Brian worked in Greenwich, CT, before moving to Napa Valley. Prior to joining Cakebread Cellars, he worked at étoile, the restaurant at Domaine Chandon, Napa.

Brian enjoys sharing his knowledge and passion for cooking. Every year, he works with a fourth-grade class in the town of Napa, introducing young students to the pleasure of cooking and helping them develop an understanding of food sources. Brian is a member of both the Chef’s Collaborative and Slow Food.
