Sharon Grossi of Valley End Farm and Doubletree Hotel (One Doubletree Dr., Rohnert Park) are teaming up for a monthly series of family-style dinners featuring foods not only from Valley End Farm but also from other local farmers, ranchers and wineries.

The first dinner is tonight. It begins with appetizers and wine tasting at 6:30 p.m. Seating for the family-style dinner begins at 7 p.m. If you hurry, you can snag a seat or two, no worries. Just call 586-4679 and let them know how many spots you’d like to reserve.

Sharing food at a family-style meal offers a great opportunity to turn strangers into friends

The evening is a bargain at just $35 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

Stay tuned. Eat This Now and my column Mouthful will provide more notice for next month’s dinner.
