North of San Francisco, in Healdsburg, among the vineyards of Sonoma County, Single Thread maximizes the use of its own 5-hectare farm located about 10 kilometers from the inn. Vegetables, fruits, herbs, flowers, honey, eggs and olive oil help shape the prodigious kitchen. “Super local, super seasonal,” is the motto that guides Kyle and his wife Katina every day. Familiar with the farming methods of Hokkaido farms, the Connaughtons have Japan in their blood. That's why a dinner at Single Thread rolls out the Kaiseki culinary style with which the chef is so enamored. Harmony, textures, and colors play their role divinely in dishes that unfold through small portions found in beautifully handmade dishes. In the subdued light of the restaurant, the 11-course menu is a veritable waltz of flavors, where each product gives meaning to the plate, and every composition is savored as one would delight in a masterpiece.
A delicacy of Single Thread cuisine! An experience, undoubtedly! Relais & Châteaux congratulates the Connaughtons for their committed cuisine, where the land of Sonoma County, so precious, has delivered the best of California soil for a now 3-star cuisine!
