Dialog Dinners are a sit-down-format, four-course gourmet dining experience with a featured speaker, hosted by Chef Joni Sare at private homes. Events are held around the San Francisco Bay Area, in homes with suitable seating and kitchens. Seating is limited to 8-16 people per event, depending on the particular home. Call Joni to inquire about hosting a Dialog Dinner in your venue. Meals vary from Paleolithic format (see here) to vegan and raw food, depending on the speakers and guests. On advance notice, special dietary requirements can be accommodated.

These events are for those who are interested in…
– talking about health, nutrition – asking questions / sharing ideas (patients/consumers and practitioners)
– being inspired to create new habits and learning tools to do so
– eating a nourishing meal while having a nourishing conversation
