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

TOMORROW – SLV Museum Opening Reception for Bear With Us

2015-02 SLVM Bear With UsWhat: Opening Reception for the museums new exhibit Bear With Us

When: Sunday, February 15th, 2015 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm

Where: San Lorenzo Valley Museum

12547 Highway 9, Boulder Creek, CA 95006
(831) 338-8382

In the late 1700s, the San Francisco peninsula was a wilderness, and home to large numbers of grizzlies. The abundance of food was shared between the hierarchy of wildlife and the native peoples; there was plenty for all. In just a few decades, this would change.

Confrontations between man and bear often resulted in death or serious injury. By the late-1800s there were few grizzlies left here and by 1900, grizzlies, once prolific, had been hunted to extinction.

This exhibition tells the stories of bear encounters, both grizzlies and black bears, in the Santa Cruz area from the late 1700s to the present day and reminds us that often our intolerance can lead to an unrecoverable and regrettable loss.

The exhibition includes hands-on activities for young visitors and interactive elements to engage visitors of all ages.

Exhibition Sponsored by: The Robinson Family, Travis Tree Professionals, A Team Tree Service, Christianson Tree Experts Co., Pacific Mountain Tree Service, Big Creek Lumber, Jeff Hill and Sons. Thanks to Bay Photo for their support in the printing of the exhibition panels.

Opening Reception Sponsored by: Big Basin Vineyards and New Leaf Community Market, Boulder Creek.
