Whole Animal Summer Lunch Series

There’s nothing more emblematic of Sonoma County than our local farms, fishermen, and wineries. This summer, Chefs Scott Romano (Dry Creek Kitchen) and Casey and Patrick Van Voorhis (Spoonbar) are joining forces to present an al fresco Sunday lunch series celebrating whole animal cookery and some of our favorite Sonoma County wineries.

On Sunday, September 24, our chef team takes fresh rainbow trout from the cold springs of Mt. Lassen to a whole new level. The result: a multi-course lunch starting with an assortment of California's freshest seafood followed by a family-style feast of Mt. Lassen Trout. Tessier Winery will be on hand to provide lunch pairings, along with Chef Charlie Palmer’s craft blonde ale for the reception.

$62 per person. Ticket price includes lunch, wine/beer, tax and gratuity
