Thank you.
If you find the $50 tickets sold out and paying a higher price is a barrier to you attending, please email Nicole directly.

Featured often over the years of the Pop-Up Breakfast Series, Katherine Stern is drawn to seasonal gems and the everyday essentials that are found at the farmers’ markets. After a decade as the head chef at La Posta, a small beloved Italian restaurant in the Seabright neighborhood, Stern launched The Midway, serving creative fruit and veggie forward meals at the Westside and Live Oak markets and later at Bad Animal in Downtown SC. Unique, wholesome dishes like savory grain porridge, local chanterelles and fried nettle or Fogline Farm pork belly, shelling beans and cabbage-kraut slaw have gained her a dedicated following. Currently Stern is building out a permanent space in Santa Cruz, details to be announced. Her beginnings: years ago on a backpacking trip in Europe she fell in love with Italy and extended her stay to learn more about agriculture and cooking. Between picking grapes and spending time in kitchens her love for the culinary arts was cemented. Learn about Chef Stern and join us for this special meal.
