October 10: Fall Veggie Fest

Celebrate the locally grown bounty of Fall with us at our October 10 Feast In The Field. The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe’s Executive Chef Chris Haas will guide the culinary journey featuring interactive food demonstrations and a produce-centric feast that pays homage to the season’s best fruits and vegetables. Join us at the table for an unforgettable evening.


Attendees learn about California grains from farmer Jack Ford and use a stone mill to ground their own grains or flint corn for future use in at-home recipes. Guests will also receive a bag with Temecula Olive Oil and other items to take home.
