This dinner is sold out. Please contact Joni if you want to be on the wait list.

Thank you.


This Dialog Dinner will be with Steve Fowkes at the head of the table. He will lead us in a discussion of:

“How our health derives from what we eat, drink, breathe …

….and think, feel, behave and believe”

Sunday evening, September 4th, from 5pm to 8pm (Labor Day weekend)

You are welcome to hang out with us afterward to watch the backyard lights come into full bloom as the sun goes down. (Bring warm clothing.)


The location:

This dinner will be in the backyard of a private home in Cupertino. The address, directions and parking information will be sent with confirmation of your paid reservation.


The meal:

Therapeutic Chef Joni is known for going “outside the box” – both literally and figuratively. She will create and share an incredible 5-course paleolithic meal…. with BACON as a recurring star player in each course, even the dessert.

Adventure at the table:

You are in for a paleolithic culinary adventure in flavors and textures, and will learn a few cooking tricks, and gain insight into ways of thinking outside-the-box.

  • Amuse Bouche: Marinated Green and Yellow Bush Beans, Bacon slices
  • Salad: Grated Steamed Beets and Relaxed Kale topped w/orange, chopped Bacon  and  Napales (cactus), served in an orange cup
  • Entree: Bean-free Baba Ghanoush (Eggplant, garlic, lemon, tahini, bacon fat), Steamed Broccoli marinated w/lime zest and juice, a full slice of bacon
  • Main Course: Lamb Cassoulet (ground lamb, chopped bacon, red onions, sweet corn, tomatoes, topped w/potatoes)
  • Dessert: Peach Clafoutis (peaches, almond meal, coconut milk, vanilla, medjool dates and bacon)
  (vegetarian and vegan options are available on request)


  • Home-brewed sun tea.
  • Filtered water w/selenium.
  • BYOW/B: If you are a wine or beer connoisseur feel free to bring your own bottle (share, if you like). Steve will provide free samples of his Alcohol Detox pills, a formula he designed for Nutrition Dynamics to abate hangover-like affects.
