Below is a memorial written by longtime Boulder Creek resident Robert “Bob” Fishback’s nephew. Bob passed away in July of this year.

I was upset but the weekend wasn’t a total loss, not by a long shot.  Luckily Uncle Bob lived only a short distance from him.

This week’s menu was created by culinary artist Brian Munn (The Buttery) for A Forager’s Feast.  Munn has a passion for hunting, harvesting, and savoring the food that we walk, hike, and surf past everyday- acorns and olives, even kelp. His menu is inspired by the many edible treats we have in our back yard that we too often forget about:

– From the Orchard- Local Marinated Olives & Live Oak Acorn Pate w/ Toast

– From the Garden- Early Harvest Pickled Veggies & Warm Fall Root Salad w/ Acorn Squash Soup

– From the Sea- Local Raw Oysters w/ Pickled Monterey Sea Grapes & Cranberry Saison Mignonette
