Graphic artist and Author "From Jefferson's Table", "The Hill Barons' Kitchen" and foodie blogs "Jefferson's Table" & "Foodie Tramp"
We call our weblog "Jefferson's Table" because we are so inspired, as direct descendants of Thomas Jefferson, to search the world for the most fascinating recipes, menus, venues, chefs and the philosophy of food much like he did.
Our Old Masini Adobe is Home to Cooking Classes featuring Star Chefs & Premiere Cooks. We also host many winemaker dinners and release parties offering famous vintages from Santa Ynez and the Central Coast.
The old Masini Adobe is the place to experience the magical ambience of the oldest two story adobe in So. California and it’s amazing walls that glow with romance & history. This adobe is Montecito's most historic venue for regional food and wine events. Visitors and locals alike enjoy the classes or wine tasting dinners in a room almost 200 years old...carefully designed for a world class chef with the warmth of a vintage country kitchen. The Chefs demonstrate and create exciting dishes and then the class dines on the results with expert wine pairing. Class titles include, "Dinner Party for Two", "Tapas", "Cooking with Julia", The Best of what Trader Joe is offering now", and "Dishes from Frida Kahlo's Blue House". "The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills" and much more. It's a cooking class that always turns into a party!
