Good People is about inspiration, community and friendships. Who are good people? They’re our best selves, when we rise above tribalism and explore big ideas.   OUR CHEF:    Having apprenticed at a long string of culinary jewels, learning the fundamentals of flavor, sustainability, and community, Chef Eliza Martin decided to come to The Golden State. Eliza is now Director of Field Staff and Recipe Development at Parties That Cook. If you joined us for our Perseid Meteor Showers retreat at Hot Springs Ranch, Eliza was our chef there as well. She was trained at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City, where she also worked for the Racheal Ray Show, Saveur Magazine and a number of quality restaurants and catering operations. Through the James Beard Foundation's Women In Culinary Leadership program, Eliza expanded her culinary endeavors in Chicago, working in famed restaurants embodying Creole, Indian, and Latin fare.  Moved by the vibrancy of San Fransisco and opportunity to showcase true Italian cuisine, she joined the family of innkeepers at Zingari Ristorante. Here she led the kitchen team at an iconic Italian house.  Now, she focuses on giving back to the community through food education. Eliza offers instruction to children and adults, and will be partnering with universities in the Bay to bring "edible education" to young adults. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Oct 18 DINNER TO START:Rosemary roasted fig and citrus ricotta crostiniPumpkin spice soup shooters, creme fraiche MAINS:Roasted butternut squash & kale salad with autumn fruits and roasted walnuts Grilled peach and burrata platter with balsamic glazeCoffee rubbed Bison roast (Tofu sub)Mushroom risotto with Parmesan and pineapple sageGrilled Veggies  TO FINISH:Apple apricot cobbler  Oct 19 BREAKFAST:Spinach and cheese frittataSmokey breakfast sausage and baconFruit and yogurt parfait bar with homemade granola PACKED LUNCH:Build your own sandwhich barHummus and cruditésHomemade fruit leatherHomemade krautDate peanut butter truffles  DINNER: TO START:Smoked mushroom arepas with jalapeño jamHomemade tortilla chips with guac mousse and pineapple salsa MAINS:Spicy greens salad with grapefruit and mango, toasted coconut, pepitasSecret spice smoked pork
