IN OUR DREAMS OF A PERFECT TIME, is it not often of a long and gentle summer? And so it is that our days of summer in this northern "Salmon Nation" are typically long and gentle; devoid of oppressive heat, heavy humidity, pesky insects, or even rain for weeks on end.

     Come and join us on our culinary tour of summer here on the holistic edge of North America.  Each of tonight's courses features an unfolding food from our farm, gardens, field, or wildland tramps.

     As the days change, so will our menu, tracking as it must the unfolding flavors of great Nature's ever-changing garden. Figs replace raspberries.  Apricots unseat pie cherry in summer's inexorable march.

     So, gather up family and friends. Don't let life's dream slip away. Join us now at the table this summer for the Nine Songs of Summer.

Reserve your place today!
