The Ranch Table: A Conversation with Elizabeth Poett

October 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Join author Elizabeth Poett, in conversation at the Chapel at El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park, with Matt Kettmann of the Santa Barbara Independent as they discuss her new book, ‘The Ranch Table.’

About the Book:
‘The Ranch Table,’ much like author Elizabeth Poett’s life, is organized around the work and celebrations that take place on the de la Guerra family’s San Julian Ranch, giving readers and cooks a chance to dive into the ranch’s most important workdays, family traditions, and annual celebrations. Each chapter begins with a description of an event or a special day—the work of a branding, the joys of the annual family reunion, the fun of a fall cider press, the quiet beauty of a winter evening spent at the kitchen table—and includes beautiful photos of the ranch today and archival images of its past. T’he Ranch Table’ explores a unique California way of life and delicious, hearty, seasonal meals, made to be enjoyed with family and friends.

About the Author:
Elizabeth Poett is a seventh-generation cattle rancher and the host and star of the cooking and lifestyle show ‘Ranch to Table,’ one of the founding shows of the Magnolia Network. Elizabeth was born and raised on Rancho San Julian, the De La Guerra family’s historic 14,000-acre cattle ranch on California’s Central Coast. In 2007, Elizabeth started Rancho San Julian Beef, a business selling her family’s ranch-raised, grass-fed beef directly to chefs and consumers. Her meats quickly became popular with California cooks and local chefs and have been served at restaurants across California. Elizabeth also is the author of the blog “The Ranch Table” and hosts Ranch Table events throughout the year—cooking workshops, educational events, and intimate farm-to-table meals.

A limited number of books will be available for purchase. A book signing and reception will follow the conversation.

This program is free for SBTHP members and $5 suggested donation for nonmembers.
