Garden Fusions: California Cuisine; A Taste of the Past

Garden Fusions is a unique interactive gourmet dining experience.  Every dinner has a horticulture theme featuring a special horticultural host. The host will share knowledge and advice on the evening's topic. Chef Pascal Olhats, Executive Chef of Cafe Jardin, is challenged to create a multi-course gourmet dinner to complement the theme.  This fusion between culinary and horticulture art create unique one-of-a-kind experiences.  

Join us for an evening of nostalgic California cuisine.  California cuisine is often marked with fresh food fare year round, which is one of its unique characteristics.  The evening will begin with a brief talk highlighting Sherman Library's modest menu collection.  The Librarian, Jill Thrasher, will take diners down memory lane lined with unique and fun menus.
