At the first dinner, chef Josiah Citrin served wood-fired lamb—rare, perfect!—from Elysian Field Farms, the very lambs served by Thomas Keller at The French Laundry.

The second dinner in this mouth-watering al fresco series is coming up and stars Dominique Crenn, recent “Iron Chef America” winner, and Michelin-star cuisinartist. Now the driving force behind her own new San Francisco restaurant Atelier Crenn, the internationally-trained chef will create dinner on Sunday, June 24, up at Love Apple Farm—4pm for champagne, amuses and the garden tour. Dinner from 6-8pm.

Shuttle service will take you from the Scotts Valley Hilton up to the Vine Hill property, and the dinner price $165 includes wine, tax and gratuity.

Based upon the first outing, this event is a glorious bargain. (Think of the way another outdoor dining series used to feel…..) Make reservations quickly!
