Farm To Table



Where does your food come from and what exactly does farm-to-table entail? This full-day experience is designed to teach our guests about the options and benefits to sustainable growing and cooking. Following an interactive brunch with our guests, Chef Itamar Abramovitch will guide you on a tour of local farms and shops in Napa where you will hand select all of the ingredients that will be used for a family style dinner at the end of the day. You will then visit one of Napa’s finest butcheries to pick up the protein, along with other local shops for spices and additional ingredients. This unique experience will encompass everything from what to look for when picking fresh veggies and how to communicate with your local butcher to prepping and cooking your meal in a wood fired oven.
