3/8 - NORTH MEETS SOUTH: A Taste of Victoria, Australia at Cavallo Point The Lodge at the Golden Gate

Join us on Tuesday, March 8, 2011 as Slow Living Radio celebrates a special northern-meets-southern-hemisphere event - Victoria, Australia: Taste It! from the beautiful Cavallo Point Lodge.

Cavallo Point is an understated San Francisco Bay area luxury lodge in one of America's most popular National Parks. Set in an idyllic location on the San Francisco Bay at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge – just minutes from San Francisco excitement, Sausalito charm and Marin Headlands activities. Kid-friendly and dog-friendly, Cavallo Point Lodge is the perfect location for an intimate escape, fun-filled getaway or great family vacation. Named one of the Top 10 New American Landmarks by Travel+Leisure, this LEED Gold Certified eco-resort is one of the most romantic destinations in the San Francisco Bay Area and a springboard for Northern California adventures.
Murray Circle, Cavallo Point's Michelin Star restaurant was the chosen venue for two esteemed chefs to showcase their craft using ingredients sourced from the South-Eastern Australian state of Victoria.
Chef Guy Grossi

Guy Grossi, one of Australia’s most celebrated chefs, entrepreneurs and television hosts, brought the magic that he delivers daily at his flagship restaurant Grossi Florentino in Melbourne, and his four other venues.  And Chef Joseph Humphrey infused the ingredients with his modern Californian style of fine dining that guests enjoy at Murray Circle.
