Community Table with Chef Sabrina Nyswonger

April 7, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Join us for an edible conversation between a farm, a chef, and the community.

We are delighted to welcome Community Table back for the 2023 Spring Series. This beloved event brings a renowned chef to our farm to design an ecological meal around our four seasonal rotations (market garden, milpa, fruit forest, cover crops). By bringing these culinary artists back to the source, we give them an opportunity to connect with new ingredients, find fresh inspiration in our bioregion’s historic foodways, and discover the rewards of relationship with the land.



Portrait of Chef Sabrina



Chef Sabrina’s culinary career was effectively launched by the 2020 pandemic. Having just committed to cooking full-time, she closed the doors of her previous business and came on as a line cook at San Diego’s Cowboy Star, only to be sent home on indefinite leave just a few weeks later. With no clear next step on the horizon, Chef Sabrina dove into learning as much as she could while experimenting with how different techniques reflected the flavors of her heritage. Her creative momentum soon resulted in a robust home catering business, which transitioned with the end of lockdown into private chef bookings all over the region. Thanks to her self-taught approach, Chef Sabrina combines her Mexican, Cuban and Italian background with her extensive travels in Europe and Asia to offer a truly original take on local, seasonal organic produce.



Community Table dinners are fixed course, family-style meals. As such, we cannot accommodate every dietary restriction. Please email us with any dietary needs.  We will try to accommodate for vegetarian/vegan needs, gluten intolerance, and seafood/shellfish allergies but let us know if there are any specific dietary restrictions for any of your guests.  We will do our best to accommodate anything beyond the 3 listed. If there are any life threatening allergies we recommend emailing before purchasing tickets.

Community Table Dinners begin at 6pm, when we’ll start with drinks and a farm tour. We appreciate timeliness as the dinner is coursed intentionally with just one seating. Dinners typically end around 10pm.

We can offer refunds up to one week before the dinner.  In the case that you need to cancel last minute, we would be happy to work with you to pass along your tickets to friends or family members.
