For our Sun Valley/Ketchum Guests and for parents who want to spend more quality time with their families without worrying about the cooking, I provide my specialty of providing small intimate or family dining experiences whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner or après ski. All you need to do is to pretend that you are staying in a bed and breakfast and that I am your innkeeper.  My experience has been as an innkeeper at my own bed and breakfast inn in Paso Robles, CA for 5 years as well as having been a Realtor and mother before that.( I have 2 children and 5 grandchildren.) My passion has evolved into cooking and as well as providing wonderful experiences for people. My rates vary with what you require, but are generally very reasonable.  Also included if you wish is a booklet with the recipe used for your dining and a picture of your group.
