Before there was farm-to-fork there was First Foods.

California has been likened to the Garden of Eden for its abundant food resources. For centuries the patwin of California enjoyed the riches that the land offered: fish, fowl, game, and plants.

Enjoy an evening of sharing traditional indigenous foods at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve on Saturday, April 21, 2018.

The evening begins with a gathering time featuring hors d’oeuvres of roasted quail and salmon dip with salmon skin crisps. A tour of the Tending and Gathering Garden at the preserve will expand your understanding of how California tribes used various plants for both food and basketry. Baskets and other weaving by Native American artisans will be on display as well.

The three-course meal begins with venison stew, followed by miner salad with green strawberries, and the entrée is salmon. Dessert features Indian fried bread with honey. Guest chef is Scott Ostrander, formerly with Park Winters.

After the meal, there will be some time to socialize and enjoy the spring evening at the preserve.

Cost is $45 per ticket. Only 150 tickets are available for this event.

Event and table sponsorships for the First Foods Dinner are also available. Please contact the Cache Creek Conservancy for more information at (530) 661-1070.
