Dear Guest,

It is my passion to share the art of enjoying food to its fullest potential with others. This teaching takes many forms, whether I am giving classes in my teaching kitchen, helping with the harvest of the olives at Stella Cadente, or planning and executing events in the vineyards of the Anderson Valley. Whatever the form, I enjoy teaching most when I am able to connect people with the local foods of Mendocino County and the incredible bounty of what our area offers.

Buon appetito!

Thank you! 

 It isn't often that we have the time to reflect on the lovely thank-you notes we receive from our clients.  I was cleaning out a file folder preparing for the new season, and came across a stack of cards, letters and emails from some of our very happy brides, grooms, families and event organizers.  Here's a few samples that bring back memories of smiling faces.
