Night 3: California Cuisine with Music by Robinlee!

In-PersonEast Lakeview, Chicago


Large (15-20 Guests)
Gluten Free, Vegan
We're going back to California with a delicious fresh menu that also happens to adhere to the Protective Diet as well! Robinlee Garber is a folk/jazz singer and instrumentalist who introduced me to the diet the other week, and the style of cooking was very well received! We'll cook California fresh without excess oils or fats, with no added sugar, using whole vegetables, grains, fruits, and herbs! Robinlee Garber will be providing the tunes, and we'll provide the food. We look forward to this fun night, and it's always an honor to feed you!
