THREE STONE HEARTH TOUR
Three Stone Hearth is a Community Supported Kitchen in West Berkeley that prepares nutrient dense foods on a weekly basis for Bay Area families. In this tour, you will get to see the facility, learn about the operations of the kitchen, meet the worker-owners, and spend a few hours pitching in and working on a culinary project with kitchen manager Porsche Combash. No need to bring knives or aprons, these are provided. The day will conclude with a communal, nourishing lunch.

The bus leaves the hotel at 8:30 and drives to Three Stone Hearth, 1 Boulevard Dr, Berkeley, California, for a 9:30 am arrival. Pick up at 3:00 pm and and return to the hotel by 4:00 pm. LIMITED TO A MAXIMUM OF 12 PEOPLE. Cost is $90 and includes lunch.

FARM AND WINERY TOUR
Includes Drakes Family Oyster Farm, Stubbs Vineyard and Clark Summit Farm.

DRAKES FAMILY OYSTER FARM: During the course of the approximately hour-long tour of Drakes Bay Oyster Farm, given by oyster farmers Kevin & Nancy Lunny, you will learn about the cultural, historical and ecological importance of this small family farm. You will be shown how we grow both our “cluster” oysters and “single” oysters doing all processing right on the farm in California’s last operating oyster cannery! You will be informed about our struggle to continue to operate in Point Reyes National Seashore beyond 2012. And, naturally, you’ll finish the tour with a tasting of a freshly harvested Drakes Bay Oyster on the half shell!

8:00 Bus Leaves Hotel and goes to Drakes Family Oyster Farm, 17171 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Inverness, California. Leave farm at 10:45 and go to Stubbs Vineyard Tour, 1000 Marshall Petaluma Road, Petaluma, California.

STUBBS VINEYARD: Planted in 1996 amid the fogbound hills of West

Marin, Stubbs Vineyard is a perfect site for cool-climate viticulture. We produce small quantities of handcrafted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines in the Burgundian style. Stubbs Vineyard is the only certified organic vineyard in Marin, is off the grid, and is family run, with renowned winemaker Dan Goldfield. We welcome you to visit our 11-acre vineyard.

Leave Vineyard at 1:20 pm and go on to Clark Summit Farm Tour, 30201 Hwy 1,Tomales, California

CLARK SUMMIT FARM
Visitors will see many animals including geese, guineas, milking Jerseys, pastured broilers, laying hens, turkeys, grass-fed beef, dairy and meat goats, and pastured hogs. You will see how we raise our animals in an organic and free range manner. That means letting the cattle take as long as they need to reach slaughter weight, not rushing them with drugs or cheap carbohydrates; helping our sows have their piglets wherever they want, not confined in a tiny cage; giving the laying hens the freedom to run all over the farm, and the broiler chickens plenty of room to stretch their legs on grass while protecting them from predators until they’re bigger

Leave Farm at 3:00 arrive back at hotel 4:30

Cost for the three tours is $70 and includes lunch. Maximum attendance is 55.

COOKING CLASSES
Held at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport Hotel

9:00- 12:00 Cheesemaking with Katherine Mowbray

My session will be a demonstration to show how to make 10 litres of fresh unpasteurized milk into Cheddar Cheese, in so doing explaining the principles of making firm pressed cheese which can be stored for months. Quark, which is a soft cheese that needs to be eating fresh and Ricotta which will be made from the whey as a byproduct of the Cheddar. Participants will certainly understand the basic principles of cheese making and have the confidence to go home and have a try at making their own cheese themselves.

12:00 – 1;00 pm Lunch on your own

1:00 – 4:00 pm Crockpot Cooking with Jessica Prentice
Slow and Low: Nourishing Food from the Slow Cooker. Time to dust off your Crockpot! Slow-cookers are amazing tools for preparing nourishing traditional meals at home. This low-temperature approach is ideal for dissolving gelatin, rendering fats, braising pastured meats, and intensifying flavors. This class will introduce you to making broths, soups, stews, lard, ghee, and even porridges and other dishes using a home slow-cooker. Taught by Jessica Prentice, author of Full Moon Feast and co-owner of Three Stone Hearth Community Supported Kitchen.

Cost for both classes is $45 and does not include lunch
