We were hosted at the continually transforming and absolutely cozy home of Don Smith and Jane Mickelson. Don and Jane opened their home early in the day to the chefs of the month– Perry Shimon and Rebekah Cantor, who made the most amazingly simple and inspiring macrobiotic bowl which included California-grown rice, beans, greens, avocados, nuts, radishes, sprouts, and squash. It was topped with raita or tahini or both. Stephanie Hilborn was an instrumental part of the team as well, making multiple sauerkrauts from spicy to lemony to traditional. These krauts added just the right zing to the bowls. And if that was not enough Stephanie also made two gigantic vegan cheesecakes– one with passion fruit and the other with blueberries. There was plenty for each of us to have both and still folks were clamoring for more. There were little babies, farmers, world renowned musicians, artists, writers, singers, radio hosts, and more all enjoying the warmth of the food and each other. It was another fine meal and once again we ate so well for just $10. Special thanks for all who stayed and helped to clean up including the official clean up team of Anne Vrolyk and Diana Alstad.
