I am honored to return to Phil Gelb’s vegan feast and music event for the 4th time. And this time, I am thrilled to play duo with one of my very favorite musicians, Barre Phillips!! Barre is native to the bay area but has lived in France since the 1960’s thus rarely performs in California. Check out the menu!

Late spring through summer means stone fruits are in abundance in the kitchen. And this time we will focuse on cherries, though perhaps some plums will likely make a guest appearance;

This menu is in process. Right now putting out some old favorite ideas but as cherry season begins i will test out several ideas to further explore one of the most beautiful and flavorful stone fruits.
