BoHo Mission Statement –Chapter 26

Seasonal, honest cooking reminiscent of the home cooking we love.

Central to our mission is to mentor and collaborate with our cooks & team to find a balance in our cooking between authenticity and spontaneity.

Influenced by the cuisines of Wine Country from California to Spain, France, Italy and beyond. Our menus are a reflection of the time we share at stove and table at home and when we gather with friends. We cook to restore ourselves after the intensity of the summer season ends, hosting dinner parties in the off season- we reconnect with our family and friends. Each dish holds so many stories- the hands that nurtured then harvested, the origin of a treasured recipe – tested over and over, with the simple hope it could convey our love of the craft of cooking. A herb, a vegetable, fish & shellfish, pasture raised animals, we source our ingredients and hope to honor them.

Whether it’s a bowl of house made ricotta cavtelli or grilled lobster spaghetti: we view our cooking as a recipe collection of love letters from our travels that arrives at your table, expressed with each dish. We scour markets and farms from one season to the next.

We look forward to welcoming you home to the Boarding House.
