Catering & Personal Chefs

Lisa Westfield

Lisa Cameron, Personal Chef, 702-610-5033“The best beef wellington I have ever tasted with all the perfect complements, whatever the highest praise I can give Lisa seems inadequate, she is simply amazing” Steven R.

“I hired Lisa and her team to cater a dinner party for my wife’s 40th birthday. The entire experience, from planning to event day was terrific. Rather than simply pointing us toward standard menu choices, Lisa was very flexible in helping create a customized menu that exceeded our expectations in every way. The meal was delicious, and Lisa’s team did a great job throughout the evening. Many of our guests commented about how pleased they were with the food and the presentation. I look forward to hiring Lisa again the next time I have an event!” Don J

Coastal Drive

RedwoodsGo up route one, stop at Bodega Point for Whale Watching, then further north on one to Salmon Beach take in the sea air and the rhythm of the waves, further north to Goat Rock (my Dad’s favorite), further north to Jenner.

• River’s End Restaurant & Inn 11048 Highway 1, Jenner, CA 95450 (707) 865-2484 • Hotel Class:0 stars Rating: 4.5 out of 5 with 696 reviews

Then head River Road along Guerneville Road to Armstrong Wood heading back to Dillon full Day but wonderful. This would be a good time to take in Hartford winery or head through Sebastopol for food supplies. My Mom’s favorite drive. We do it every year when she visits.
Great memories…As you can see you will barely skim the surface of a wonderful area with just a week so you may need to stay 2.
