Host Farmer: Larry Thorne, Thorne Family Farm, Malibu, CA (Los Angeles Area)
Guest Chef: Jason Neroni, The Rose Cafe, Venice, CA


Point Dume is a pretty nice place to put a table. Larry Thorne’s family has farmed here since 1946. Not a single tractor on Larry’s spread is less than 50 years old, so our vintage bus will fit right in. The 25 acre farm features a bounty of fruit trees, strawberry fields and other crops. And tomatoes; they don’t call Larry the “tomato whisperer” for nothing. We first worked with Chef Jason Neroni in 2012 when he joined us at Wattles Farm in downtown L.A. It’s been a couple years since Jason came out to the vegetable patch with us, but he did rock out with OITF in Coachella Valley for our dinner at Desert Trip. Now he’s back in the garden. It’s quieter here.
