While his favorite dish may change depending on what he is eating in the moment, Robert is always passionate about sharing authentic food and life experiences with guests. Before setting his eyes on the RANCHOLOMA hills, Robert's views of the world ranged from the back of a bull (as a rider) to looking through the lens on a film set (as a director). His prefers a cocktail of Milagro silver tequila, fingerlimes, and smoked sea salt - which, at his ideal table, would accompany a leisurely dinner with Edward Zwick, Quanah Parker, and Keith Carter.
Before discovering her affinity for orchestrating meals using the most flavorful ingredients, Laurie applied the same eye for quality to her career as a commercial film producer. She takes particular pleasure in persuading people to eat (and enjoy!) their beets. While Laurie has never eaten at McDonalds, her first food industry job was maitre d' of the Sonic parking lot. Given the choice of an ideal cocktail and table for four, Laurie would sip on Hendricks gin, cucumber, juniper berries, and Topo Chico while sharing food and stories with Eddie Vedder, Rene Redzepi, and Joel Kinnamon.
