Three sumptuous meals daily

The Dining experience at Stanford Sierra Conference Center is custom designed for each group by our Executive Chef, Dave Dennis and his team of assistants to please and accommodate all desires and diets. We use only the freshest ingredients as well as what is in season and sustainable for our region. We source local ingredients when available and we use organic, grass fed, and wild animal and fish products when available. All of our desserts are scratch prepared by our Pastry Chef.

Here are just a few sample menus of our cuisine:
