Homewood Mountain Resort’s second farm-to-table dinner series was a wonderful success. The unique dining experience took place on August 31 atop of the resort’s impressive slopes.

The five-course locally-sourced seasonal cuisine was specially created by guest chef Kellan Hori and Sous Chef Amanda Adams, both from Kellan’s Kitchen, known for its California comfort food with a contemporary twist.

Guests were greeted at the Quail Chairlift with charming paper parasols and flutes of bubbly to sip while riding the lift to the top of the mountain peak.  At the top, guests were surrounded by some of the most stunning and incomparable views of Lake Tahoe.

Guests enjoyed a charming welcoming reception with live music, hors d’oeuvres and wine pairings provided by Alderbrook Vineyards and beer options by Blue Moon Brewing Company.

The three family style tables were immaculately setup providing everyone with an equal and pristine view of the attractive scenery.

Some standout dishes were the Corn Bisque, which was complimented with shallots, and cotija cheese and due to its massive success at the Homewood dinner will now become a permanent option on Kellan’s Kitchen’s menu.

The Miso-Bourbon Short Ribs were also hugely popular among the guests. Prepared with Sierra Meat grass-fed beef {ranch name} and braised with a unique blend of miso-bourbon stock, provided just the right amount of exotic flavors to tantalite the palate.

The appropriate grand finale for an evening outside was the modern spin on the classic “S’mores”. The dish arrived in a quaint Mason jar with bruleed marshmallows and bittersweet chocolate mousse and provided by San Francisco based company Marlo’s Bakeshop, which specializes sweet & sugary needs in the Bay Area.

The occasion brought out the likes of Tahoe locals, Bay Area foodies, and New York State Senator, Betty Little, who was in town visiting family.

The Farm to Peak Dinner Series was sponsored in part by the Tahoe Food Hub, which is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to building a regional food system in North Lake Tahoe.

Stay tuned for the definite possibility of a repeat performance of Homewood Mountain Resort’s Farm to Peak Dinner next summer
