Chefs Moore and Seidel will work alongside Rancho Pescadero’s Executive Chef César Pita to create a weekend full of memorable culinary experiences. Chef Moore, a Chicago-based chef, is known for his bold flavors and inventive twists on Southern staples at Currency Exchange Cafe. Chef Seidel’s revered Denver restaurants Fruition and Mercantile Dining & Provision, along with his coveted Colorado creamery, Fruition Farms famously led the way in Colorado’s gastronomic revolution. This powerhouse trio of chefs have partnered together in the past on memorable culinary experiences and truly enjoy inspiring each other in the kitchen. This special weekend will serve as a retreat allowing the chefs to form authentic connections with their audiences in a relaxed, welcoming environment. 
Chefs Moore, Seidel and Pita will host the flavor-filled weekend, balancing events like a Q&A-style welcome reception with the chefs; a hands-on cooking class; collaborative dinners with all three chefs; a cheese-making excursion and a beach-side brunch experience to create the ultimate escape — with incredible food.
