Menu from Previous Event

The Venue

(Taste Buds in Latin languages) is a "farm to table" concept cafe-restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Our specialty menu is based on organic, locally sourced produce, exquisitely prepared and served fresh daily. We source the best ingredients directly from farmers and incorporate them into a fast changing, highly seasonal menu. Our food is perfectly paired with Single Origin specialty Coffees and Teas as well as local, biodynamic sustainably made Wines and craft beers. We've worked with 20+ employees and now we are reduced to 9. Despite having to adjust with the times, we've managed to cultivate a unique and mouthwatering dining experience

I discovered the wine industry while working with Chef’s Thomas Keller and Joachim Splichal in the top dining rooms of Los Angeles. My passion redirected my career from restaurants/hotels to vineyards and wine-education. Now with over 25-years of experience hosting events; leading trips around the wine world; I published a wine book; produced my own wine called Beekeeper Cellars and sat for the difficult Master of Wine Exam! Today, I am considered one of the region's best wine educators and work for my 20,000 followers (follow me), visiting vineyards and wine regions and produce over 100 wine classes and events a year for my businesses and my team.
