Cookbook Fest is a groundbreaking book festival that merges the worlds of literature and gastronomy—bringing together renowned cookbook authors, celebrated podcasts, and enthusiastic food lovers.

Over three unforgettable days in the heart of Napa Valley, immerse yourself in this whirlwind of delicious experiences, all designed to ignite the senses and nourish the soul: from live podcast recordings to author book signings to engaging hands-on cooking interviews.

Situated in the heart of Napa Wine Country at the whimsical Feast It Forward, Cookbook Fest is the premiere festival where every recipe, every story, and every ingredient takes center stage. Part book festival, part food & wine festival, part music festival, Cookbook Fest is unlike anything you've seen before. We can't wait to #TalkCookbooks with you!



CookbookFest will take place at festival co-founder Katie Hamilton Shaffer’s whimsical Feast It Forward property, located in downtown Napa's Oxbow District.

Anchored by fellow tourist destinations, Oxbow Public Market, The Culinary Institute of America at Copia and the iconic Napa Valley Wine Train, this unique concept is the first of its kind.

As a dynamic web-based media network and lifestyle brand, this "click & mortar" destination boasts an extraordinary fusion of experiences bringing her award-winning Feast.Network to life. Discover THE YARD, an outdoor festival venue that sets the stage for unforgettable moments, and step into THE STUDIO, an experiential showroom where a film studio and multi-winery tasting room converge. Every sight and sensation you encounter within the vibrant space is carefully curated, serving as a captivating playground where national brands come alive and connect with consumers, all while supporting the entertainment platform, Feast.Network.
