A sense of adventure is what we all crave. If we travel, we want the same experience that the locals enjoy. Hiking, foraging, finding that hidden restaurant or vineyard only the locals can tell you about. We all want the feeling of, “I’m finally here” What if we can for a brief time talk about a place, around a meal, with a drink and enjoy the experience with the company of our like-minded friends?
“It has always been about ingredients. It was when I started and more than ever, is now.” –Jeremiah Tower
“Let things taste of what they are.” – Alice Waters
“Raw ingredients trump recipes every time; farmers and ranchers who coax the best from the earth can make any of us appear to be a great cook.” – Judy Rogers
American Cuisine, California Cuisine, hell, 80’s cuisine, call it what you will. This is where it all began for me. Before I knew who these people were, this is the kind of food I remember; straight from the garden, clean, seasoned and left to taste like what you were eating.
This menu will take you to the roots of the bay area cooking and how it influenced my way of menu planning and creating a dish.

Each dinner will begin with a social hour to get the opportunity to mingle and enjoy the company of others. Once seated, we will learn more about our location; have you been there, have a story to share with the group about your experience or somewhere you enjoyed a meal?
