The Philharmonic Kitchen on the Farm


The Philharmonic Kitchen cordially invites you to a collaboration with Food Network’s celebrity chef, Duskie Estes, chef and owner of Zazu.

Karsten Windt & Tyler Lewis, violin, Ivy Zenobi, viola, and Eric Gaenslen, cello, will be responsible for your musical well-being. Upon arrival, guests will be serenaded by the musicians as the sun reaches the golden hour and magically lights up the rolling hills. From there, each course of the menu will be paired with a piece of music in a range of classical to contemporary styles to match the food’s character and ingredients. Come and experience an event for the senses!

The Philharmonic Kitchen + Zazu are excited to take you on a food and musical journey where both elements play off of each other to create a magical afternoon that is sure to delight your senses!

Imagine driving past old family vineyards and apple orchards to the quaint town of Forestville. Upon arrival to Chef Duskie Estes’ Farm House, you will be welcomed by music and wine… and perhaps even the family dog. On the grassy lawn, a long farm table is decorated in white linens, mason jars and rustic floral centerpieces. The string quartet is staged on the wooden platform deck. A sophisticated twist on a farm to table experience. The question asked is “how does the food & music come together”? The music will be presented with fun tidbits, trivia, history and folklore regarding the music selection and how it relates to each dinner course. Music. Food. Music. Food. This creates an intimate dialogue between the songs, cuisine, participants, chef, and musicians. As the sun slowly fades and the stars come out, you’ll leave wanting more.  It is not often one can experiencing the simple delights of a Sunday afternoon filled with delicious bites and the old world charm of live chamber music.


The event will take place on the garden lawn; choose your footwear accordingly. Also, a sweater and/or blanket is recommended as it can get a bit chilly in the evening.

Self parking is available on property (stacked) and on street.
