Against the backdrop of our beautiful historic Villa and picturesque grounds, guests will sample gourmet fare from some of the most celebrated restaurants in the Bay Area and enjoy tastings from many of the region’s finest wineries. Bid on rare & limited edition wines and special dining & travel packages during a live and silent charity auction.

Bring your appetite for
"Around the Table," May 18

Andrea Blum: Around the Table

Join culinary artist Andrea Blum on Sunday, May 18, at 6:30pm for a delicious dinner inspired by the themes of love and passion for discovery: "Around the Table."

The evening will examine cooking as an expression of affection, and meals as communal gatherings celebrating the act of giving. A short hike whets the appetite before guests sit down together at the table.

In addition to sharing a meal, attendees will also be asked to share something related to the kitchen: a recipe, a story, or even produce from the garden—something that expresses giving as an act of love.

This dinner is presented in conjunction with the exhibition L O V E: Creativity, Connection, Community on view in the Project Space Gallery through June 8.
