Cooking with Marti! Learned so much and the food was great.

Great service and a beautiful place to stay. We also enjoyed our trip to Baker Buffalo Creek Winery. Great wine and the owners were fabulous.

The time to talk with Chef Marti about his life experiences and his approach to cooking. Chef Marti was able to talk first hand about cooking for the Clinton's, being at the White House and running Camp David. His knowledge about world,american and presidential history is outstanding!
