September – October 2014
Once a year we gather a small number of outstanding human beings to share their story with you in a barn, in a rustic farming community 90 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Our hope is that the stories and conversations allow you to observe and reflect in a way that invites new possibility.
Doing starts with being. We firmly believe this. We also believe that trust breeds magic and curiosity trumps judgement. DO USA is about embracing uncertainty, quieting your cleverness, supporting vulnerability and living empathy.
You’ll laugh hard and you’ll probably shed a tear. You’ll hug, you’ll dance, you’ll gaze at the stars and promise yourself you’ll do this more often.
You’ll dream big, you’ll walk barefoot in the grass. You’ll breath deeply and you’ll sit still and wonder. You’ll need to zip your sleeping bag all the way to the top and you’ll need coffee, because there are moments you don’t want to miss…they could change your life forever.
It’s a small event, we’ll be romancing 100 amazing individuals. There are no name tags, everyone is equal. You’ll eat and drink fresh local organic food and wine grown on site, your senses won’t know what hit them.
Culinary-Super-Star Chef John Ash will be cooking up amazing recipes from his brand new cookbook, Culinary Birds. The book, published in late 2013, was recently nominated for a prestigious James Beard award. This special event will include a walking tour of the farm, a focused cheese tasting and Chef John demonstrating 4 outstanding recipes from the book that will be served up for a delicious lunch. Retail Sales and Book Signing will complete the delicious and fun-filled day.
Fall is on its way, the perfect time for soup and (what else?) poultry! I’ll be cooking up recipes for a warm chicken posole, Korean chicken wines and more on October 2 at Draegers in San Mateo. More details and tickets online.
John has a new book called “Culinary Birds” which was published by Running Press Books in the fall of 2013. In addition to the recipes, the book will tackle the good and the bad about current poultry husbandry practices as well as other things we should know about the noble birds. The book was nominated for a James Beard award.
