Living in Half Moon Bay provides Susie Farber and Dale Schmidt with the freshest of ingredients from the sea as well as produce from the farms. Their passion for food goes well beyond the ordinary into creating dishes that are full of flavor and pleasing to the eye. Their diverse menu will include braised lamb shanks, filet mignon and seafood to name just a few. They have been cooking and testing recipes for many years. Dale was born into a large Midwestern farm family where meals were the center of social activity. Sunday suppers were always a social event with friends and extended family joining. Starting at an early age he was delighted to participate in these major productions. Now many years later he still has over 50 immediate family members in Northern California congregating on a regular basis where he does a good bit of the cooking. His passion has been enhanced by many classes- both “hands on” and demos. Susie’s passion for cooking started in her 20′s when she lived in both Japan and the Phillipines for several months at a time. She has participated in numerous cooking classes as well as teaching classes in her home. The highlight of her experiences so far was being a sous chef in the back kitchen during a taping of Jaques Pepin’s “Essential Pepin” on local KQED television. Susie is a watercolor artist and can be found with a brush in her hand when she is not cooking. Susie and Dale are very excited to be bringing their favorite dishes to the Guest Chef Restaurant from June 5 – June 17. They hope you’ll come join them for a delightful evening..
