Audubon Canyon Ranch, which owns the former Bouverie Preserve where David Pleydell-Bouverie built MFK Fisher’s “last house,” will host a fundraiser to help preserve her home and decide what to do with the property at the General’s Daughter on Sunday, Oct. 8.
Guests will taste a dinner of Epicurean Connection cheeses, Stone Edge Farm salad, Cassoulet from the Depot Hotel and the Epicurean Connection, a Bouchon Bakery dessert bar, and Wild Thyme’s Hot Dots. The latter are really gingerbread cookies with a little perk to them that Wild Thyme’s Keith and Joanne Filipello used to make as Fisher’s favorite cookies. Bouchon Bakery and the Depot Hotel are customers of the Epicurean Connection.
Anyone who has gifts from Fisher that she had given them is encouraged to bring the item to the event if you want to return them to add to the authenticity of Last House. Proceeds from the event will go toward the renovation effort. Event $100 ACR members, $125 non-members. 5 to 7 p.m. 400 W. Spain St., Sonoma. Tickets at (415) 868-9244 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets on sale online as available. You can donate directly to egret.org/mfk-fishers-last-house.
