Simple, fresh, and original dishes prepared with care, grace our table each night.
Let’s go eat!
Local, seasonal, farm fresh and organic cuisine
Some of my fondest family memories are those surrounded by my grandmother, my aunts, or my mother all of us cooking together for big family reunions. Ever since I was little, I wanted to understand how to make everything from scratch. My muse is the farmers market where I can find local seasonal and organic products from small producers. Know your farmer, know your food!
Please do stop by and ask us why we believe so firmly in the locavore movement, and how our own story has brought us to support small local farms.
From California all the way here !
I often hear “How does an American know how to cook like that?” My answer is “Well, California has world renown wineries in Napa that resemble those of Burgundy, it has green pastured dairy farms that make one think of Normandy, and a long-standing tradition of fresh local produce. In fact, thanks to California’s rich and diverse cultural heritage, a temperate climate and globe-trotting farmers, we were the seed that grew into the locavore movement .”
When we created our organic creamery on the farm just north of San Francisco in 2003, we were fortunate to have been there at the right time, and in just the right place to pioneer that movement.
A note about special meals and allergies
We understand allergies and intolerances. I have sensitivities myself. We believe that having an allergy or intolerance should not mean you can’t eat just as well as the others. Because of this, we offer hand crafted special meals that can be ordered when you reserve (dairy free, gluten free, vegetarian, nut free, etc.) Allergy or not you should relish your meal! We do not use frozen or ready meal meals. I always start with the finest quality fresh ingredients and make the meal from scratch for you (even the GF bread!). Up here in the mountains, the cost of special ingredients and finding these types of provisions is not simple however.
There is a 3 euro charge per day (half board) and a 1 euro charge per day (brown bag lunch) for special meals. In order to meet your unique needs, please let us know you need a special meal when
you reserve. If you are not strict in your special diet and wish to just not eat the meat or ice cream for example, there is no additional charge of course.
