FAQs

 

where does the dinner take place?

Unless otherwise noted, the dinners take place various venues throughout the Joshua Tree area. After you purchase your ticket(s), you will receive an automated confirmation email with your receipt, and then a second personal email from Sarah, which will give you the address and directions. It may take up to 48 hours to receive this second email—but don’t worry, once you’ve purchased, you’re on the list.

What time should i arrive?

On time! ´Your second confirmation email from Sarah will indicate what time to arrive—some events begin at a specific time, others are more come-and-go style.

WHAT IS THE BEVERAGE SITUATION?

Water will be provided for all guests, but if you would like something else to accompany your meal, you may bring that with you. Unless the event specifically involves booze, all events are BYOB, so please bring any alcoholic beverages you might want to consume. 

where can i see the menu?

The menu is not published ahead of time and will be shared with you when you arrive for the dinner. Think of it as an adventure! If you can’t deal with surprises, then maybe this isn’t the kind of event for you. Just sayin’ ;)

I'm a vegetarian

Great! Please select the vegetarian option when you checkout.

WHAT IF I HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY OR DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?

Please contact me with any serious concerns before you purchase a ticket: thesarahwitt@gmail.com   I will do my best, but may not be able to accommodate your specific needs. Please make sure to mention any allergies in the first field in the "additional information" section of the checkout page. Gluten free and vegetarian diets will always be accommodated if they indicate these preferences when they purchase their tickets.

I'm PREGNANT OR NURSING, ARE WILD FOODS SAFE FOR ME?

Certain ingredients are known to interact with the female reproductive system and are not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing. Although only a small amount of these ingredients are used for seasoning, please be aware of these possible interactions. It may be best to dine with us another time; if you do choose to attend, please note this in the dietary concerns field in the "additional information" section.

I'M NOT PREGNANT OR NURSING, ARE WILD FOODS SAFE FOR ME?

There is an inherent risk in eating any food, but particularly with uncultivated varieties. I have done extensive research on all the plants I use, from both culinary and medicinal perspectives, and use negligible quantities of these plants. Although it's rare, there's always the possibility that a food will not sit well with you. The dinner features one plant or grouping of plants, but often I pair the featured ingredient with other wild herbs, so If you have a serious health condition or a compromised immune system, it's best to avoid consuming unknown foods. Please contact me if you have any specific questions about the safety of wild foods: thesarahwitt@gmail.com

what if i need to cancel?

Bummer! Please notify me ASAP. Tickets are non-refundable for cancellations made within 48 hours of your reservation time, or if you fail to show up. The number of tickets available are limited, so let's make sure someone else has a chance to eat if you can't!
