Coming soon: Happy Girl Kitchen hosts a special dinner

In conjunction with the upcoming EcoFarm conference, Happy Girl Kitchen will be hosting a couple all-vegetarian pop-up dinners. The first one will be on February 2, featuring guest chefs Jacob Pilarski from Manresa Restaurant in Los Gatos and Matt Millea from Big Sur’s Post Ranch Inn and produce from Watsonville’s Live Earth Farm. The following night (February 3), chef Jacob Pilarski goes solo, preparing dinner with ingredients from Serendipity Farm.

Dinner each night will be served from 6:00 until 7:30 and includes four courses paired with wines from Heller Estate or beer from Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. The cost is $55 per person, and tickets for the February 2 dinner are available here. Snag tickets for the February 3 dinner here.
