First Foods Dinner April 21st at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve $45 per ticket

Before there was farm-to-fork there were 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.

The evening begins with a gathering time featuring hors d’oeuvres of roasted quail and salmon dip with salmon skin crisps. Followed bya tour of the Tending and Gathering Garden.

The three-course meal begins with venison stew, miner salad with green strawberries and an entrée of salmon. Dessert features Indian fried bread with honey. 

No alcoholic beverages will be served at the dinner, as alcohol is not an indigenousness drink.

Our meal will be prepared by guest chef is Scott Ostrander, formerly with the Inn at Park Winters.

Only 150 tickets are available for this event. Tickets may be purchased at
