This year, to ensure that chefs get maximum creative freedom, we are limiting dietary options to food allergies, such as celiac disease or peanut or shellfish allergies. If you simply prefer not to eat something, such as red meat, these dinners might not be the best option for you. It has become a nightmare for our chefs to respond to many, many food requests.
I personally had a dinner with 20 different dietary requests. It’s impossible to do our best work under such circumstances. I am so sorry if you have come to expect this, but we just can’t do it for a group setting going forward.
Nine Chefs, Thirteen Nights
Welcome back, friends. The RubyJune Inn Chefs Collective dinner series is on the loose!
If you had the chance to join us last summer, you know what magical nights they were. The gorgeous outdoor setting, Gretchen’s finely curated wine choices, and of course, the food. That’s my fav.
It was so great to be part of such a fine chef cohort. This year, three new chefs join our stable, and you can read all about the dinners, and buy tickets, just by clicking on the blue ticket box to the left.
I’ll be preparing two dinners this year:
July 2, Peru
Sept. 3, Sicily
And you can bet you’ll see me helping other chefs or enjoying the other chefs’ presentations on my nights off! This is really the best ticket in the Gorge. Last year, we sold out in less than a week, so just sayin.’ Don’t dawdle, Amaryllis.
Dinners are limited to 30 guests so that we can thoroughly wow you. Chris and Gretchen don’t release all the tickets at once … some are held back for inn guests. So why not make a weekend of it? Be assured of a fabulous guest experience, and a wonderful dinner.
