a-taste-of-ojai-book“I believe that preparing food is about great ingredients, and everything that goes into making a great meal. For me, it’s about sourcing well grown, local organic vegetables, the time you set aside to prepare a great dish, the music playing in the background, the tools you use in the kitchen, the vintage server you serve with and the beautiful plates you present your meal on. Its about community and sitting together at the table and enjoying the meal together with gratitude and thanks.”

“Joining the Wild About Ojai program, I can play a much larger role in protecting what I love about Ojai, more than I can on an individual basis.

1% of my sales of A Taste of Ojai culinary salts and A Taste of Ojai cookbook is donated which helps fund the protection and management of Ojai Valley open space for public use to the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy to preserve Ojai’s views, trails and wildlife.

I live directly across from a large portion of protected land and value this open space, a critical part of what makes Ojai the special place that I call home.”
