Wat we doen

Every month we meet at various locations to learn the secrets of Santa Barbara's sensational cuisine from the people who produce, market and prepare our food. We visit farms, markets, restaurants, culinary stores, wineries, the marina and many more. Learn and experience what local is all about.Our goal is to bridge the gap between taste, health and the environment by purchasing local food produced by our farmers. This will nourish our body with delicious fresh food and preserve our soil, wildlife, land, farm workers and our community. I am a long time foodie and dietitian who teaches nutrition to chefs at SBCC and works as a dietitian at Sansum Clinic. Feel free to email me to share your thoughts and ideas.

** Recently I have started to post food and farm events by other organizations, mostly non-profits. It has crowded our calendar and may be confusing;some of these events charge a fee that may seem extravagant. I try to only promote events that meet our goal of education and fun. I do not always attend these events although I wish I could.
